Many people are taking to the streets these days to protest against the war in Ukraine. Demos against the Corona measures are less popular – the hard core still gathers.
Opponents of the Corona measures took to the streets nationwide again on Saturday, but fewer people came than expected. According to the police, it was mostly peaceful.
In Reutlingen, Baden-Württemberg, around 6,000 people took part in a protest march through the city center, the police said. According to the municipality, the organizers had registered up to 7,000 people. The protest march was held under the motto “We are the human family”. According to the police, 1,600 people took part in a meeting in Freiburg, and 4,500 were registered. Several hundred people were also on the move in Stuttgart.

Significantly fewer participants than expected
In Hamburg, demonstrations organized by opponents of the Corona measures were less popular than the organizer had expected. According to the police, a maximum of 3,550 people took part in four demonstrations. The applicant, the United Movement for Equal Human Rights (UMEHR), classified by the Office for the Protection of the Constitution as anti-constitutional, had expected 7,000 participants. The demonstrations were held under the motto “Against the mask requirement and other corona containment measures”. The State Office for the Protection of the Constitution had classified the association as an object of observation and warned: “Anyone who takes part in these meetings is marching with enemies of the constitution.”
