Thousands protest as German police given powers to open mail under new laws

Organizers expected some 7,000 protesters to take part in the rally which is underway at Munich Marienplatz, the city’s central square and transport hub.

Footage of the rally shows a crowded central square. Due to the high number of protesters, Munich police took to Twitter to urge new arrivals to go to nearby Odeonsplatz as Marienplatz had grown too full.

Some 65 organizations, including opposition parties Greens, SPD and FDP, oppose the planned Police Task Force Act (PAG). The legislation would allow authorities to open letters, survey apartments as well as scan email and telephone conversations.
