MUNICH (AP) — About 4,000 protesters have gathered in Munich as the Group of Seven leading economic powers are set to hold their annual gathering in the Germany’s Bavarian Alps. Organizers had hoped to mobilize up to 20,000 protesters in the Bavarian city on Saturday. One of the protest organizers theorized that potential participants might consider it inappropriate to challenge the world’s wealthiest democracies during Russia’s war in Ukraine.  Fifteen groups critical of globalization called on people to participate in demonstrations for this weekend’s summit. The G-7 leaders are expected to start arriving Saturday afternoon and will tackle issues such as Russia’s war on Ukraine, climate change, energy and the looming food security crisis.
