Alternative Luxemburg-Liebknecht anniversary demo organised by young socialists

A rival Luxemburg-Liebknecht demo is being organised by young socialists frustrated with the traditional demonstration,which is dominated by the Left Party. The demonstration, which marks the anniversary of the murders of Rosa Luxemburg and Karl Liebknecht on 15 January 1919, has been a tradition in Germany since the 1920s and was an important national event for the leadership of the German Democratic Republic until 1989.
