Violent Protests Against Violence Expected

Why? Because it’s May Day, that’s why. You know. Tradition and all that? Yawn.

Germany: Feminists and squatters kick off early May Day protests in Berlin – Thousands of people marched through the German capital to protest against violence against women ahead of May Day. The crowd dispersed following clashes with the police.

This Will Show Them Russkies

And if lighting up stuff in the national colors of Ukraine doesn’t help, we may have to consider building a Menschenkette (a chain of people holding hands). As a last resort, we MIGHT even ask them to sing We Shall Overcome. So, like watch it, Putin. Give peace a chance, or something.

Berlin and Paris illuminate buildings in Ukrainian colours in show of unity – The German capital lit up the Brandenburg Gate, Berlin’s most famous landmark in blue and yellow, the national colours of Ukraine, on Wednesday evening in a show of unity with Kyiv as the crisis with Russia deepens.

German Of The Day: Impfpflicht

That means mandatory vaccination. And those signs down there read “for free vaccination decisions” and “no to mandatory vaccination.”

Tens of thousands of people are protesting against the latest restrictive COVID measures in German cities all over the country. And it’s fun to watch the state media squirm. They’re clearly finding it more and more difficult labelling these people wackos.

In Hamburg, some 13,700 people attended a demonstration against the restrictions, police said.

Under the banner, “Stop the corona dictatorship,” 4,000 protested in Düsseldorf.

Around 5,000 people rallied in Frankfurt, according to the police.

Hopefully He Had His Shots

I mean, vaccinations. But I would go ahead and get tested if I were that cop.

COVID protester bites German police officer as marches spark violence – Police in Germany has reported sporadic violence at demonstrations against the country’s COVID-19 pandemic restrictions, with one protester in the eastern town of Lichtenstein biting an officer and another attempting to steal a service weapon.

German Of The Day: Spaziergängen

That means walks.

Over 35,000 German “walkers” protested against the government’s anti-Covid measures in German cities last night. This appears to be embarrassing for Germany’s state news channels because they are doing their damndest to ignore this.

Mehr als 35 000 Menschen sind am Montag in zahlreichen deutschen Städten gegen die staatlichen Corona-Maßnahmen auf die Straße gegangen – oft bei nicht genehmigten “Spaziergängen”.

In a related story: “Sheep are such likeable animals — maybe they can get the message over better.”

German Of The Day: Strafanzeigen

That means criminal charges. You know, like the charges made against those demonstrating against the government’s anti-Covid measures in Munich last night?

There were some 5,000 there alone. Word is, the German police have just about had it and don’t have the personnel to handle all the demonstrations in the German cities that are now taking place.

New Year’s Eve might get a little crazy this year.

Polizei stoppt 5000 Demonstranten in München – Zwei Dutzend Strafanzeigen.

German Of The Day: Ausschreitungen

That means riots. You know, like the “riot” taking place in the photo of this anti-Covid measure demonstration down there?

Germany Erupts in Protests Over COVID Mandates, Police Officers Injured in Riots – The protests come as the German government implemented new restrictions this month to deal with the Omicron variant, which is believed to be more transmissible than other variants.

Earlier in December, Germany announced limits on private gatherings that were to begin Tuesday. The restriction is intended to limit the number of people holding large gatherings on New Year’s Eve. A maximum of 10 vaccinated people are allowed to attend a private gathering. If someone who is unvaccinated attends, only one other household can go to the gathering.

German lawmakers have approved a law mandating that medical staff be vaccinated, according to the broadcaster Deutsche Welle.

“Now is not the time for parties in large groups.”

German Of The Day: Bundesweit

That means nationwide.

You know, like “Thousands of opponents against the Corona measures took to the streets again nationwide Monday night?” And that came from one of Germany’s state TV channels too. Reminds me a bit of 1989. Sort of.

Thousands protest against Corona measures – Once again, numerous people have taken part in protests against the Corona regulations and against compulsory vaccination. The situation escalated in several cities: demonstrators attacked emergency forces.

Book Him

And throw him in the ho-ho-hole.

Man dressed as Santa Claus arrested at COVID protest – Police arrested a man dressed as Santa Claus at the Stralsund Christmas market, in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, on Monday. He was apparently taking part in an unregistered demonstration against coronavirus restrictions in Germany.

In a video of the arrest – which has since gone viral on social media – the man can be seen wearing the classic trappings of the world’s favourite yuletide visitor, along with a more unusual accessory: a sign that reads “2G – without me”. Together with approximately 65 other people, he was protesting against restrictions and the possibility of vaccines against coronavirus becoming compulsory for the wider public.

The Next Far-Right Conspiracy

Yawn. Been there, done that. They do the same thing with “Climate Change deniers.”

If you are a German who dares to openly question or even criticize your government’s draconian COVID restrictions, you are “teaming up with the far-right” at best and a neo-Nazi even better.

COVID protests escalate in Germany – In Germany, protesters against COVID restrictions are teaming up with the far-right. The new government now plans to crack down on the messenger service they use: Telegram.

“Those who take to the streets, to a large extent, are a mixture of the far-right extremist scene, the far-right Reichsbürger scene, conspiracy theorists, hooligans, and an alternative esoteric scene.”
