In Berlin, the police stopped an unauthorized action by opponents of vaccination
“The operation was to reduce the risk of infection and disperse the demonstration,” admitted police spokesman Thilo Kablitz. “In some cases, we had to use physical violence.” One of these raids ended in tragedy: a 49-year-old protester fell ill in a police car, where he was taken to check his documents. and died already in the hospital, where the ambulance took him. As the media found out, the detainee was not a Berliner (like many of the protesters) and came to the German capital from the Rhineland, and not alone, but with his underage son, whom he took with him “to the barricades.” According to the police, the demonstrator tried to break through their cordon and was detained for identification.
The core of the protests has traditionally been the Thinking Outside the Box movement, which for ideological reasons is financed by Michael Balweg, a businessman from Stuttgart. He and his supporters oppose the restrictive measures the authorities are using to combat the corona pandemic. “Long live democracy, down with the covid dictatorship!” – this is one of the most frequent slogans that can be seen at such events. With the start of the vaccination campaign, opponents of vaccination joined the ranks of the rebels. Balweg himself calls his movement exclusively peaceful.
By the way, initially 22.5 thousand people were announced to participate in the Sunday demonstration, but the Berlin Senate refused to hold it. Then about 5 thousand “outside the box” took to the streets unauthorizedly. They were not frightened even by the threat of a fine of up to a thousand euros, according to the local portal rbb24. Berlin’s Charlottenburg, Mitte and Kreuzberg districts became the epicenter of “popular resistance.” On Monday, they wanted to bring 10 thousand people to the streets of the capital, but the police again banned the march.
