Thousands have protested in the German capital Berlin against a planned free-trade deal between the EU and US.
Organisers said 250,000 people took part in the rally; police put the figure at around 100,000.
Opponents of the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) say it is undemocratic and threatens consumer and worker rights.
But supporters of the deal, which lowers trade barriers, say it would boost economies and create jobs.
Hundreds of buses shuttled protesters to Saturday’s demonstration in the German capital.
“We are here because we do not want to leave the future to markets, but on the contrary to save democracy,” Michael Mueller, president of the ecological organisation German Friends of Nature, told AFP.

The product is changing, and is now offered to a new market. There will be a new appearance, new features and benefits and new competitors. Innovation
This is the most complex change. New technology, new price, new promotion, and new competitors call for new strategy.
The product remains the same, but the marketing mix, price, and promotion are re-blended. Re-launch
Change the name, appearance, costs and the marketing mix. Obvious Substitution
The new product appears in a conspicuous manner drawing attention to new technology and materials. Change the name, appearance, costs and the marketing mix.
Neither the product or market is changing. Maintain the status quo. Face lift
No change in marketing, but changes in the product must provide greater competitive advantage. Quiet Substitution
No change in marketing. The new product creeps quietly into the market without fanfare.
