Thousands of people attended rallies in Berlin and Stuttgart on Saturday to protest Germany's role in the war in Afghanistan. A partner demonstration was held in Manchester, England. Police said the rallies remained peaceful. The gatherings were organized by a collective of some 250 peace groups in Germany under the slogan "Give peace a chance, troops out of Afghanistan." "There's another strategy for peace in Afghanistan that doesn't involve a military, and that strategy needs to be employed," said Jens-Peter Steffen, who helped organize the Berlin rally. About 3,300 German soldiers are serving in Afghanistan, most of them in the country's relatively calm north.
