With protests erupting in countries around the world — including Germany, the United States, Turkey, and Venezuela — it was a busy week around the world. 

World leaders met at the G20 summit in Hamburg, Germany. At the same time, Global Citizens attended a festival featuring Coldplay's Chris Martin, Shakira, and Pharrell Williams, which secured several commitments to ending extreme poverty from high profile leaders. 

Protesters also gathered in Pamplona, Spain to protest bullfighting, and an Afghan woman lifted off on a solo flight around the world.
