Germans protest tensions with N Korea

Hundreds of people formed a human chain between the United States and North Korean embassies in downtown Berlin on Saturday during a protest over the rising tensions and harsh words between the two nations.

Demonstrators also banged oil drums painted to resemble atomic waste containers, waved banners with slogans like ‘Make Peace, Not War’ and posed in front of a model of a nuclear missile wearing masks of US President Donald Trump and North Korean leader, Kim Jong Un.

International organisations taking part in Saturday’s protest in Germany’s capital included Greenpeace and International Paediatricians for the Prevention of Nuclear War.
