More than 1000 people demonstrated against the protective measures in Dortmund, a corona hotspot. Many did not wear a mask and submitted an alleged certificate. The police discovered several fakes.

Rand 1,100 people demonstrated against the corona requirements in downtown Dortmund on Sunday, according to police. Many participants in the “lateral thinking” initiative would not have worn mouth and nose protection or removed the mask, reported the police.

A spokeswoman said that the organizer had relied on the fact that many were exempted from wearing a mask with a medical certificate. In the afternoon, at least two forgeries had already been discovered and criminal charges had been filed.

The police in Dortmund had prepared with a large contingent for the approximately 3,000 protesters who had originally registered. Dortmund is one of the cities that has exceeded the highest corona warning threshold – with over 50 new infections calculated for 100,000 inhabitants in seven days. On Sunday, the Robert Koch Institute showed the so-called seven-day incidence here at 66.5. This means that stricter protective measures such as mask requirements also apply in pedestrian zones and in crowded squares.

On the banners of the “lateral thinkers” were slogans such as “Corona Dictatorship Union” or “Live the Basic Law – against the vaccination mafia”. A mask – worn below the nose – read: “Muzzle”. A lone counter-demonstrator held up his sign in the crowd that read “Corona is killing. Wear masks! ”According to the police, there were no riots on Sunday afternoon.

The authorities had announced in advance that they would take consistent action against behavior that is harmful to health. The police also used a drone for this purpose. For the demonstration in Dortmund, a division into small groups with a maximum of five people, minimum distances and mouth and nose coverage were prescribed.
