According to official figures, 38,000 people marched in Berlin on Saturday.

One of the protesters told AFP:
“We’re here to say: we have to be careful! Coronavirus crisis or not, we must defend our freedoms”
As soon as the protesters reached the iconic Brandenburg Gate, the gathering was forced to stop by the German police.
“The minimum distancing is not being respected by most (of the demonstrators) despite repeated requests. There is no other option than to break up the gathering.”
said a police official. Several protesters were arrested.
London protesters gathered in Trafalgar Square to oppose the government’s restrictions.
Many people were angry about the lockdown restrictions and forced vaccination programs announced by the UK government recently. Very few of the protesters, both in Germany and the UK, were wearing masks and none of them respected what’s now called “social distancing measures”.
Since the Covid-19 crisis in the UK, over 300.000 cases were reported. Britain imposed new restrictions earlier this month, including a ban on separate households meeting one another in a domestic setting.
