LIVE: Leftist demo hits Leipzig despite EU-China summit cancellation

Ruptly is live from Leipzig on Saturday, September 12, as far-left groups hold an anti-authoritarian demonstration on the days when the EU-China summit was supposed to be taking place in the city.

According to the organisers, the protest will go ahead despite the cancellation of the summit, to draw attention to the issues around the summit’s concept and to various existing issues concerning the EU and China.

The EU-China summit, which was scheduled to take place in Leipzig, was cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic.
