Tens of thousands again took to the streets in Germany for corona protests
In the evening, tens of thousands of people across Germany took to the streets again against the Corona policy. While the police in most cases reported that the demonstrations and counter-events went smoothly, a 53-year-old man died in Wandlitz in Brandenburg. He had apparently previously tried to break through a police line, whereupon the officers found his personal details. According to the police, “shortly afterwards” he had a “medical emergency” and died in the hospital.
In many places, the police again found violations of assembly requirements and corona protection measures. The authorities therefore created hundreds of complaints about administrative offenses and dozens of criminal complaints about insults. There were clashes with counter-demonstrators in several places. Occasionally, demonstrators also attacked police officers and journalists again.
In Thuringia, where around 26,500 people took part in more than 75 registered and unregistered meetings nationwide, a total of nine emergency services were injured, according to the police. One officer was “temporarily unfit for work”. Six officers were injured in Rostock and three in Saarburg in Rhineland-Palatinate.
