Blockupy’ Protests Break Out in Frankfurt as ECB Opens New Building

Scattered incidents of violence broke out across Germany’s financial capital alongside demonstrations against the inauguration of the European Central Bank’s new headquarters. “Blockupy” activists have announced plans to gather around the ECB’s new building—which cost more than €1 billion ($1.06 billion) to build. Nevertheless, the ECB officially opened its new headquarters at 11 clock with a ceremony.
