28/7/1914 German socialists continue to demonstrate against war

In Berlin, anti-war demonstrators attempt to march into the centre of the city from working class areas. They are mostly blocked by horse-mounted policemen. A small number break through into Unter den Linden and shout anti-war slogans. Then the police lay onto them, to cheers from well-to-do citizens in Berlin’s chic cafés.

Although numbers demonstrating against war in Germany are sizeable, the anti-war demonstrations are considerably smaller than the demonstrations in 1910 for Prussian voting reform.
