About 50,000 protesters took to the streets of Cologne in Germany on Saturday to stage a demonstration against the far-right Alternative for Germany (AfD) party’s convention, which was held on April 22. Demonstrators carried banners reading, “No borders” and “Refugees welcome.” More than 4,000 police officers were drafted in to keep the peace.
