Hundreds of Thousands of Germans Protest Far-Right Movement

Hundreds of thousands of people filled the streets of Berlin Saturday to protest against racism and rising anti-immigrant sentiment in the country.  While organizers reportedly expected some 40,000 people to attend, outlets are reporting as many as 240,000 actually turned out.  A group called #Unteilbar — or "indivisible" — organized the rally.

On  the group's website , it says it's concerned about attacks on human rights and religious freedom, and that it aims to stand against racism, sexism and nationalism, among other things.  The protest comes at a time when resentment against refugees and migrants in the country has helped the far-right party Alternative for Germany become the largest opposition party in the country and weakened Chancellor Angela Merkel's hold on power.

On Sunday, Bavarians headed to the polls in a regional election that could further jeopardize Merkel's position, with both anti- and pro-immigrant parties expected to make gains on the establishment party there.
