Democracy Market Leipzig October 9

Democracy Market 4Across late morning and afternoon of October, 9, several local groups set up display tables and shared stage  in the heavily-trafficked area of downtown Leipzig, most of which were activists representing causes such as environmental sustainability, anti-globalization, and anti-fascism. Other NGOs and charities were also present, including a church, which was represented by a youth choir performance. One of the more popular performances was a mock auction where an auctioneer auction offed Germany’s public institutions, such as the railway system, public hospitals, and its university system. The crowds got involved in the humor, with the public universities prompting a quite eager round of bidding. Democracy Market 2Democracy Market 3Democracy Market 1
