From AL Jazeera:
Thousands marched across Germany to call for more taxes on the rich and for a financial transaction tax, and to oppose further bank bailouts.
And in Paris, thousands were marching today in another anti-austerity action.
Now videos online yet, but we have this report from Agence France-Presse:
Thousands of left-wing protesters took to the streets of Paris on Sunday to denounce the European Union fiscal pact forcing governments to stick to tough deficit limits.
Chanting “Resistance!”, protesters marched through central Paris in a rally organisers said was aimed at fighting EU-imposed austerity, not at criticising the government of Socialist President Francois Hollande.
“This day is the day the French people launch a movement against the policy of austerity,” one-time presidential contender and Left Front leader Jean-Luc Melenchon said at the march, which organisers said gathered more than 50,000 people.
Melenchon denied the protest was aimed at Hollande, saying: “This is a left-wing demonstration under a left-wing government.”
