It's important to show how much terror has happened in Germany, right-wing terror all over the time and we have to do something against it."

SCRIPT
More than 200,000 protesters reportedly took to the streets of Berlin on Sunday, to protest against right-wing violence, anti-Semitism and racism under the slogan 'indivisible'.
Footage shows demonstrators gathering at Bebelplatz square, holding signs, banners and Jewish symbols, before making their way towards the New Synagogue located in the neighbourhood of Mitte.
Attendees also observed a minute of silence for the victims of the Halle attack.
"We are standing here because we think it is important to do whatever you can for democracy... and against right wing movement, against racism, against any kind of superiority", said Rita, a member of 'Grandmothers against the Right'.
The 'indivisible' protest, comes only a few days after a 27-year old man opened fire outside a synagogue in the eastern German city of Halle killing two people, in what has been acknowledged a far-right terror attack by German Justice Minister Christine Lambrecht.
