A large anti-imperialist rally took place in the streets of Munich on Saturday where thousands of protesters gave a powerful response to the U.S-NATO-EU imperialist “hawks” participating at the 56th Munich Security Conference.

Under the slogan “Stop the DEFENDER 2020 exercise! Close down NATO bases in Ramstein, Incirlik, Souda and everywhere”, workers and immigrants, members and supporters of the Communist Parties of Greece (KKE) and Turkey (TKP), marched alongside their comrades from the German Communist Party (DKP). 

Holding banners and flags the protesters shouted anti-imperialist slogans and distributed leaflets calling German and immigrant workers to condemn NATO and capitalist barbarity. 

The 56th Munich Security Conference took place from 14 to 16th February with the participation of notable imperialists, including U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, French President Emmanuel Macron, NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg and others.
