At least 93 police officers were injured during May Day rallies that turned violent in Berlin over the weekend.

The injures occurred in about 20 rallies and resulted in 354 people being detained in connection with setting fires, throwing bottles and rocks at police and other offenses.

More than 8,000 people took to the streets on May 1, for May Day. 

The day is also known as  International Workers Day or Labour Day is a Marxist-created holiday to celebrate the workers of the world.

“Violence against police officers and a blind, destructive rage has nothing to do with political protest,” Berlin state interior minister Andreas Geisel said Sunday, according to the Associated Press.

Official have imposed a nightly curfew in most parts of the country as a result of the violence and damage.
