The German right has dominated more than 90 demonstrations called across the country since the end of April to protest the restrictions imposed by the coronavirus pandemic. This emerges from reports from the Office for the Protection of the Constitution, the German secret service.
One focus of the protests, in which often only a few dozen people took part, was the eastern state of Saxony-Anhalt. More than a third of all right-wing protests took place in this region between April 25 and August 10.
The intelligence services specified this information on the basis of a parliamentary petition from the La Izquierda group, according to the document to which the DPA had access.
The last major mobilization against the measures against the corona virus took place last weekend in Berlin and was supported, among other things, by members of the so-called Reichsbürger, who do not recognize the current German state. Members of the more radical faction of the Alternative for Germany party (AfD) also took part.
