  • RT published this video item, entitled “German police arrest protesters during ‘silent march’ in Berlin” – below is their description.

    Activists protesting the coronavirus lockdown have organized another ‘#silentmarch’ in #Germany’s #Berlin, angering the locals and provoking counter-demonstrations. Police made arrests as they dispersed a blockade on the path of the marchers. The organizers of the event insist that the “campaign of fear” launched by the government over the Covid-19 pandemic is infringing on their rights and must end. They are aiming for their protest to be as civilized as possible, with participants asked to wear face masks, abide by social distancing rules, and refrain from chanting any political slogans.
