Tens of thousands of people against corporate globalization have taken to the streets of the German city of Hamburg ahead of the upcoming G-20 summit.
Anti-globalization demonstrators converged on Hamburg despite rain to call on G-20 leaders to take more action on inequality, climate change and populism. The leaders are due to gather for a two day summit on July 7 amid tight security to discuss issues including trade, climate change and migration.
As protests rage, the German chancellor has promised people that the summit will look into their concerns, including distribution of wealth and consumption of resources. Angela Merkel says they will seek a win-win situation for everyone in which consumer protection, social and environmental standards are upheld.
