Some great pictures of the Luxemburg-Liebknecht demonstration(s) (13 Jan 2013)

From the Neue Rheinische Zeitung here:

Here are a few of them, which show the diversity of groups and individuals who associate themselves with Rosa Luxemburg (!) (courtesy of Neue Rheinische Zeitung- see link above):

The Luxemburg-Liebknecht Demo (organised by The Left Party)

The rival ‘Rosa and Karl’ demo, organised by left-wing youth organisations.

Left Party Reichstag Deputy Ulla Jelpke holds a poster mimicking the ‘Rosa and Karl’ demo placards. The poster replaces Luxemburg and Liebknecht with Gustav Noske and Friedrich Ebert, defence minister and head-of-government at the time of the murders in 15 January 1919.

Demonstrator holding a German Communist Party (DKP) placard which reads ‘Hands off Syria!’

Greek Communist Party demonstrators on the Luxemburg-Liebknecht march.

Basque leftists on the march.

A demonstrator on the demo holds a placard with a quote from Venuzuelan President Hugo Chavez: “Rosa Luxemburg lives in the Latin American revolution”.
