Raus Aus Dem Euro!

We've just learned from FAZ that about one hundred protesters from the so-called Party of Reason and the Free Voters movement rallied outside the ECB headquarters in Frankfurt today. All Germans, they were equipped with blue-on-white placards conveying two very simple messages: Raus aus dem Euro (Out of the euro) and Nein zur Schuldenunion (No to debt union). The paper notes that the majority were people in their mid-thirties and mid-forties, arriving straight from their offices (see picture).

Nothing to do with the thousands of Spanish indignados for the moment, but it's the first time a protest has taken place outside the ECB buildings, and it may well not be the last...
