Press TV reported, Hundreds of demonstrators marched on Sunday toward the Bayerischer Hof Hotel, where the 50th Munich Security Conference is being held.
The demonstrators walked around a sealed area surrounding the conference as the Bavarian police have set up checkpoints to protect the conference area in Marienplatz Square in central Munich.
Calling for peaceful solutions for conflicts, the protesters called the conference “NATO’s war meeting.” The activists also said they were demonstrating against global arms deals, urging genuine global peace.
