Protesters in Berlin call for lifting sanctions on Russia as prices soar
Residents in Berlin took to the streets of the German capital on September 5 to protest against the government's energy policies and call for lifting sanctions on Russia to help curb energy price hikes. Protesters chanted slogans, such as "Open the Nord Stream Gas Pipeline" and "No NATO," demanding that the German government adjust its foreign policy.
Germany's consumer price index rose by 7.9 percent in August, close to the highest level seen in the past 50 years. Energy prices rose an alarming 35.6 percent in August, which is the biggest reason for Germany's high inflation rate.
