Activists from the 'Stop G7 Elmau' movement were joined by local residents from Garmisch-Partenkirchen at their final rally outside the Garmisch train station on Monday. Whilst still protesting against the G7 summit taking place in Schloss Elmau, the main focus of the rally was to thank the local residents of Garmisch-Partenkirchen for the hospitality and support shown to the activists. Addressing the crowd, a number of activists thanked the local residents of the town for showing support and solidarity with the protests. Some local residents also took the microphone to thank the activists and express their surprise at how peaceful the protests had remained. Protesters held placards with slogans such as "Stop TTIP" and "G7 capitalism is inhuman". The heads of state and government of all G7 nations - Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, the UK and the USA - were at Schloss Elmau for the two-day G7 summit. This year's gathering is estimated to have cost just over €130 million ($144 million) according to official figures; while the German Taxpayers Federation believes it may cost the German state close to €360 million ($400 million). The G7, formerly known as the G8, excluded Russia from the group of industrialised democracies in March 2014, citing its reunification with Crimea and the conflict in eastern Ukraine as the principle reasons.
