In order to protect symbols such as the Brandenburg Gate, CSU regional group leader Alexander Dobrindt would like to restrict freedom of demonstration within a certain radius. Whether his idea is effective?
CSU regional group leader Alexander Dobrindt wants to have national symbols such as the Brandenburg Gate in Berlin protected by a ban mile. With a few exceptions, demonstrations would then be banned in this area, said the head of the CSU MPs in the Bundestag to “Bild am Sonntag”.
“We are experiencing the misuse or contempt of our national symbols such as the Brandenburg Gate by anti-Israel demonstrators or climate chaotic people. Many of our neighbors in Europe are just as stunned as we are by these images from Germany,” said Dobrindt.
In Germany, the Bundestag and the state parliaments in particular are protected by ban miles. Freedom to demonstrate is restricted within a certain circle around the buildings. However, this can hardly prevent color attacks like the last generation at the Brandenburg Gate. In March, activists from this group poured black paint on the Basic Law monument, which is located within the restricted zone around the Reichstag building.
