Protests Explode Across Germany: Doctors & Citizens Demand Merkel’s Totalitarian COVID-19 Restrictions End
Tens of thousands of citizens rallied across Germany accusing the government of needlessly drawing out Chinese coronavirus restrictions which infringe upon on their basic rights. Among the crowds were doctors and nurses with banners and chants of "Freedom," "Join" and "Resistance."
Last week, Chancellor Angela Merkel announced that the government would begin to allow certain businesses, religious services and schools to begin to reopen. Despite the easing of some restrictions, German's feel Merkel has not gone far enough in rolling back restrictions. Many believe their constitutional rights are being infringed upon.
Crowds consisting of average citizens with no clear or obvious
political affiliation took to the streets chanting "Shame on you" and
"Traitors to the People" at police and politicians for their draconian
response to the coronavirus.
