BERLIN (AP) — Thousands protested Germany’s coronavirus restrictions Saturday in a Berlin demonstration marking what organizers called “the end of the pandemic”
A declaration that comes just as authorities are voicing increasing concerns about an uptick in new infections.
With few masks in sight, a dense crowd marched through downtown Berlin from the Brandenburg Gate.
Protesters who came from across the country held up signs with slogans like “Corona, false alarm,” “We are being forced to wear a mask,” “Natural defense instead of vaccination” and “We are the second wave.”
The protesters in Berlin are bringing up trucks with anti-mask slogans: “Show me your smile” and “We are loud, because our freedom is being stolen”
