Coronavirus: Police clash with protesters in Berlin against new COVID-19 restrictions

Global News published this video item, entitled “Coronavirus: Police clash with protesters in Berlin against new COVID-19 restrictions” – below is their description.

Berlin police clashed with protesters on Wednesday as thousands rallied against recent coronavirus restrictions near the German city’s landmark Brandenburg Gate. Protesters threw bottles, and witnesses reported smoke bombs were also set off, with riot police arresting some demonstrators. Authorities also used water cannons to disperse the crowd. While most Germans accept the latest “lockdown light,” as it’s being called, some are criticizing legislation due to be passed by parliament that could impose curbs on social contact, rules on mask-wearing, and shutting shops. Some critics say it gives the national government too much power.
