German police enforce protest ban
German police have begun moving in on hundreds of anti-capitalist protesters from the "occupy movement". The demonstrators have set up tents in Frankfurt’s historic "Roemer" square. Local authorities have banned protests against government policies dealing with the debt crisis.
But now more than 1,000 people are demonstrating against the protest ban. Several more demonstrations scheduled for Thursday were all banned by local courts after city authorities expressed concern over possible riots.

Police are carrying away demonstrators from the central square and tearing down the tents they had set up. Occupy movement demonstrators call their actions "Blockupy", as they are trying to block access to Germany’s largest banks and the European Central Bank headquarters in Frankfurt.
