Elephant in the room paraded through Berlin in direct democracy protest

Demonstrators paraded an elephant through Berlin, Sunday, to protest a lack of citizens' direct input in federal decisions. The protesters demanded more referendums and input in German legislation, since they claim a handful of political parties are exclusively in control of major decisions. «Over 70 percent of German people are for referendums and this has not been addressed. In the whole... Еще election campaign it was never spoken about. It is the duty of the German legislature to give us input. We want to answer fundamental questions by referendum. So we said that it's the 'elephant in the room', let's show people so they get the picture,» said Kurt Wilhelmi from Omnibus für direkte Demokratie, a collective group who demand direct democracy.
