Germans stage rally to protest government spying

Nasim– Thousands of people of Germany came to the streets in Berlin to protest the government’s surveillance and data collection programs.

According to protest organizers, about 6,500 people participated in the demonstration, calling for stricter control on German intelligence agencies.

Human Rights organization Amnesty International’s Sebastian Schweda encouraged protests against the “government versus the people” game.

“The disclosures of the last months showed the whole world that the right to privacy is being dramatically eroded,” he said.

The protests against Germany’s spying activities on its citizens come as Berlin has been criticizing Washington for carrying out spying activities against the European country.
