Joyce sends along more pictures of the recent “Blockupy Frankfurt” march where police joined the protesters. What a sight for sore eyes this is.
How About This? Police Change Sides!
From Occupy Frankfurt. May 19, 2012.
The German police took off their helmets and marched with the protesters - clearing the way for them. The police coming over to serve and protect the people… Blockupy Frankfurt. Police are escorting. Reports of an estimated 20,000+ protesters. Nice to see their faces…. and their humanity coming through…
German police officers escort an anti-capitalism protest march with some 20,000 people in Frankfurt, Germany, Saturday, May 19, 2012. Protesters peacefully filled the city center of continental Europe’s biggest financial hub in their protest against the dominance of banks and what they perceive to be untamed capitalism, Frankfurt police spokesman Ruediger Regis said. The protest group calling itself Blockupy has called for blocking the access to the European Central Bank, which is located in Frankfurt’s business district.
