After local courts banned protests against the European Central Bank in Frankfurt, the Blockupy Alliance went on with its demonstrtations, raising banners reading “Our Solidarity Against Your Crisis.” Police from multiple jurisdictions swarmed the city in he thousands, closing subway stations, stopping traffic, building fences and barricades, and establishing checkpoints throughout the city. On Wednesday, the Occupy camp near the European Central Bank was evicted. 200 people peacefully resisted and were dragged away by police in riot armor.
Today, protesters are converging for a march (the only remaining even that was not banned by the government).
Police claim to expect 30,000 demonstrators and have sent 5000 officers.
