About 2,000 demonstrators marched on Munich's Marienplatz on Saturday under the motto of 'No Peace with NATO' for the annual 51st Munich Security Conference. Marching through Munich's city centre, the protesters carried anti-NATO and anti-government banners, with some activists waving Russian and LGBT flags as well as placards critical of the U.S. and the European Union. Several protests were also spotted with placards reading 'Je suis Donbass.' A heavy police presence of about 1,000 units has been deployed to maintain security in the city. No injuries have been reported, with the venue of the conference preemptively closed off in anticipation of the protests.
