Holding posters with slogans like "Stop AfD" and "My voice against incitement", thousands of demonstrators marched Sunday in Berlin to protest the far-right Alternative for Germany's (AfD) debut in parliament this week. The anti-Islam and anti-migrant AfD garnered 12.6 percent of the vote in the general election in September to become the country's third biggest party. "When the AfD sits in the Bundestag for the first time on October 24th, it needs to know that our parliament is not a stage for racism, discrimination and falsifying history!" said Campact, the group that organised the protest.
