Thousands also protested against white supremacists and neo-Nazis at multiple international rallies over the weekend. In Berlin, Germany, more than 1,000 anti-fascists faced off against a much smaller crowd of neo-Nazis. This is counterprotester Anja Herbig.

Anja Herbig: “I am here today to honor my grandfather, who died in a concentration camp. He was German and was taken for not throwing a blind Jewish woman out of a bunker during an air raid, and lost his life for that. I am here today in remembrance of my grandfather.”

In Vancouver, Canada, thousands more gathered outside City Hall on Saturday to counter a group of anti-immigrant protesters. Hundreds more gathered in Quebec City to protest against a rally by far-right-wing extremists.
