Berlin - Some 15,000 demonstrators marched in Berlin on Saturday to demand greater privacy, accusing the German government of creating a "surveillance state."The Stop This Surveillance Madness rally ended at the Brandenburg Gate. Organizers said 100,000 people took part, but police on crowd duty said they had not seen more than about 15,000 present at any one time.

The German privacy movement is upset at European Union data- retention laws that require phone companies to keep for six months computerized lists of the numbers that their customers call.
