According to Greenpeacewho was one of the organizers of the protests, about 24,000 people took part in them, with police announcing that about 1,800 demonstrators protested in Berlin.

“We want to show that we immediately need financial aid for the citizens, but also its provision with social criteria. The government does a lot, but distributes the money like using a watering can. People with the lowest incomes need more support than the rich,” he said Andrea Kotsis vice-president of the ver.di association who participated in the organization of the demonstrations.

On Friday, Germany’s parliament approved the government’s $200 billion rescue package, which aims to protect companies and households from the effects of energy price hikes.
