A group of activists held a protest in front of the Bundestag in Berlin on Wednesday, calling on the German Parliament to freeze funding to German arms manufacturer Rheinmetall, which plans to build a tank factory in Turkey. The protest took place on the day the Budget Committee of the Bundestag held a meeting during which the committee was expected to decide on new armaments orders, which would reportedly benefit Rheinmetall.

During the protest the activists from the Campact NGO rolled out a 'Leopard 1' tank and held placards reading "No tanks for Erdogan" and "Stop export of weapons."
