Left-wing protesters (foreground) hold up a placard demanding the far-right National Democratic Party of Germany (NPD) be banned during an NPD rally in Berlin June 17, 2012. Some 20 NPD supporters gathered in Berlin's Karl Marx Allee where East German workers rose up against the communist government of the GDR in 1953. The right wing rally attracted some 200 counter-demonstrators from various left-wing groups and parties. REUTERS/Thomas Peter (GERMANY - Tags: POLITICS CIVIL UNREST ANNIVERSARY)
