‘100s of ‘clay figures’ crawl through Hamburg protesting G20’

Hundreds of demonstrators staged a protest in Hamburg’s city center ahead of the G20 summit on Wednesday.

The protest was organized by the artistic group ‘1000 GESTALTEN’ (1000 Figures) in order to show ‘a symbol for our society and a symbol that they feel excluded from the political process only look out for themselves, only consume and don’t stand for each other.’ The figures represented a dog-eat-dog society in which belief in solidarity has been lost. The performers called for more humanity and individual responsibility.
