Around 14,000 people marched through Berlin at the traditional May Day demonstration of left-wing and radical left-wing groups. There were no major riots, but there were isolated scuffles between demonstrators and the police in Kreuzberg. The elevator was largely peaceful, said Berlin’s police chief Barbara Slowik in the evening. A large police force accompanied the protest march from Neukölln to Kreuzberg. A total of almost 6,000 police officers were on duty in the capital on May 1st.
