In several federal states of East Germany, thousands of people again spoke out against the energy policy of the authorities, inflation and the government’s position in the conflict in Ukraine, reports Das Erste. 

On Monday, demonstrations took place in the cities of Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania, Saxony-Anhalt, Thuringia and Saxony. Some tens of thousands of protesters have called for peace talks, cutting off arms supplies to Kyiv and lifting anti-Russian sanctions.

In several federal states of East Germany, thousands of people once again spoke out against the energy policy of the authorities, inflation and the government’s course towards the conflict in Ukraine. 

About 7,000 demonstrators took to the streets of more than 15 cities in Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania on Monday evening, police said. Nearly 2,400 activists gathered in the centre of Schwerin, the capital of the federal state. In Waren, more than 400 people took to the streets, and the Wismar police reported a thousand participants.

Protests against the energy policy took place, in particular, in Neubrandenburg and Parchim. About 700 people demonstrated in Rostock, police said. The police did not register any violations of the order.

The protests were primarily directed against the sharp rise in electricity and gas prices and its consequences for companies and consumers. In Schwerin and Neubrandenburg, demonstrators called for, among other things, an energy policy that people could afford, as well as an affordable cost of living. In addition, some demonstrators demanded peace talks to resolve the conflict in Ukraine, cut off arms supplies to Kyiv, and lift anti-Russian sanctions.

According to preliminary data, in several cities of the federal state of Saxony-Anhalt, for example, in Magdeburg and Halle, more than a thousand people took to the streets. The police have not yet provided accurate data on the number of protesters. Protesters in Magdeburg held placards with slogans such as ‘Enough lies about gas supplies’, ‘We will not save the whole world’ or ‘Stop the explosive rise in prices for peace, freedom and prosperity.’

In Thuringia, demonstrations took place in Gera, Jena, Erfurt and some small towns, in Saxony – in Chemnitz, Leipzig and Dresden. The police also did not provide exact data on the number of participants. However, according to a spokesman for the Saxon police, the protests were mostly peaceful. In Chemnitz, some demonstrators carried flags of Saxony or Russia. A large banner read: ’Chemnitz is getting up. Truth – Freedom – Peace.

Recently, protests against the government’s energy policy have been on the rise in East Germany. According to police estimates, more than 100 thousand people took part in demonstrations on the Day of German Unity on October 3 in Thuringia, Saxony, Saxony-Anhalt, Brandenburg and Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania, reports Das Erste.
