Around 150 people gathered in front of Berlin’s Brandenburg Gate on Thursday to protest against what they see at rising US war-rhetoric against Iran.
Mobilised by leftist party Die Linke, the protesters carried anti-war signs as well as Iranian, Russian and Communist flags, as they rallied in front of the US embassy.
Die Linke's Sahra Wagenknecht demanded that Germany denies the US use of its... Еще territory in the case of a possible war against Iran. She also denounced the video offered by the US as proof of an alleged Iranian attack on two oil tankers in the Gulf of Oman earlier this month.
Russian academic and arms control expert Victor Mizin was also present at the rally. Mizin warned that a conflict against Iran would be dangerous for the US. «They have a very strong army, it’s a huge country, unlike Iraq. I think the Americans now understand well that any strike against Iran will be threatened with terrible consequences.»
