In Other News – Thousands protest in Berlin against Covid-19 restrictions

Blockades and sit-ins took place in central Berlin on Saturday as tens of thousands of people rallied against coronavirus restrictions despite police efforts to break up the protest because of health and safety violations.

The mostly peaceful protest included people from far-right groups, conspiracy theorists who do not believe Covid-19 exists, and anti-vaccination campaigners.

“Coronavirus is one big lie,” a man in his 50s told the N24 news channel.

Police said there were several disruptions to traffic including a group of about 40 people that gathered on Berlin’s Schiffbauerdamm street, and a blockade on the Universitaetsstrasse avenue, also in central Berlin.

They said at least two people had been arrested after throwing bottles at police officers, and a container had been set on fire on Friedrichstrasse, a busy shopping boulevard.

Several protesters who broke into a restricted area near the Reichstag building had to be removed by police. Learn More
