Europe’s biggest economy has problems of its own, but like the other problematic economies of the European Union, they were decades in the making.
Protests in Frankfurt, Germany, over “austerity” measures called for by the EU’s Central Bank have turned violent, according to local reports which said that police cars had been set on fire, store windows have been shattered and cops have been stoned.
The protest — which authorities say is expected to draw about 10,000 people — have coincided with the opening of the European Central Bank’s (ECB) new headquarters in the city. In a nod to similar demonstrations in New York City and around the U.S. a few years ago, the protests in Germany have been dubbed #Blockupy.
