Berlin anti-Corona protest 2020
It’s the 1st of August 2020. Beautiful sunny Saturday in Berlin, 30 degrees, and what a better way to spend it then chilling in one of dozens Berlin’s parks and over dozens of Berlin’s lake? Apparently, by whistling, shouting, and getting dehydrated on the concrete of the city center. Almost 20,000 people gathered to protest against the current pandemic measures. Berlin ANTI-CORONA protest – END OF PANDEMIC
Thousands of protestants shouting loudly, waving signs, and not caring about the current health measures. That’s how Berlin looked on the 1st of August 2020 on a beautiful warm Saturday morning, noon, and after-noon. Showing their clear opposition to face masks and vaccines, people have protested against the coronavirus restrictions. This is the Berlin anti-corona protest.
Restrictions in Germany
Let’s make a few things clear – the restrictions in Germany are really not that strict. Most of the stores, bars, and restaurants are open as usual. Yes, you have to wear a mask when entering the store, gas station, or using public transportation. So we’re talking about 10-30 minutes of using a mask. Nobody’s chocked you, you weren’t put in a prison cell and got beaten to death! You just need to wear a mask from time to time. How hard can it be?
Apparently very hard. A lot of protesters were convinced that this whole pandemic is a hoax, that coronavirus doesn’t exist and that technological advance, mainly 5G is the source of coronavirus. Oh, and not to mention that vaccines will have a small microchip injected into your body so Bill Gates can track you.
I… I don’t know what more to say. Bill Gates, the guy who invested millions and millions into helping diseases around the world is gonna track you… Trust me, your life is not that interesting. Despite what you think, nobody cares about tracking your every step.
Step back – Italy at the beginning of pandemic
Just to put things into perspective. A few months ago when Italy was hit hard, everyone felt sorry for them and wrote support messages on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. Soon, the situation escalated across the whole of Europe. Germany took strong measures on time, had an amazing track-record, a really small number of people died compared to other countries and now you’re unhappy with it? Would it be better if no measures were taken and you, your parents and grandparents died?
COVID-19 exists or not…
Don’t get me wrong, I’m not saying I have any strong evidence the coronavirus exists. And I don’t have any evidence it doesn’t. But the current law mandates that you need to wear a mask. Nobody’s pointing a gun at your head, you just need to wear a mask for a few minutes per day. But I sure as hell am not gonna break the law and be so inconsiderate. You can protest all you want, but do it according to the law, and 17,000 people without masks and without keeping 1.5m of distance is definitely not it.
Hoax or not, don’t be an idiot. If you don’t like to wear a mask in public transport there is this cool thing called walking. It will not kill you, you’ll get exercise and it’s free. Nobody’s forcing you to use the public transportation service, but if you are using it, please follow the rules. Otherwise, you do deserve to get a fine for breaking the rules.
Stay safe and take care.
