    Thousands of people have filled the streets of Berlin to protest against spying and data collection.

    Marching under the slogan “freedom instead of fear,” they claimed privacy is being violated in the name of security.

    Around 80 organisations and civil rights groups, including Amnesty International, called for the demonstration which has taken place annually since 2006.

    The protesters marched from the Brandenburg Gate to the chancellery.
