Berlin protesters decry coronavirus measures; 600 detained

Source: Associated Press

BERLIN (AP) — Thousands turned out in Berlin on Sunday to protest the German government’s anti-coronavirus measures despite a ban on the gatherings, leading to clashes with police and the detention of some 600 protesters.

Local authorities had banned several different protests this weekend, including one from the Stuttgart-based Querdenker movement, but protesters in Berlin defied the ban.

Berlin’s police department deployed more than 2,000 officers to try and disperse the protests, but it said officers who sought to redirect protesters or disband larger groups were “harassed and attacked.”

“They tried to break through the police cordon and pull out our colleagues,” Berlin police said, adding that officers had to use irritants and batons.

6. Yeah but everyone is getting tired of this.

Even the New York Times last year said that pandemics won't end without violence and unrest... and it has happened in every single one since the 1790 smallpox pandemic. It seems we are headed towards that stage and it's inevitable.

4. come on Germany

The Querdenker movement, the most visible anti-lockdown movement in Germany, has drawn thousands to its demonstrations in Berlin, uniting a disparate mix on both the right and the left, including those opposing vaccinations, coronavirus deniers, conspiracy theorists and right-wing extremists.

YOu should be aware of how fascists whip up people..This is where you should be laughing at the Americans, not imitating them,.
