Video transcript section, lateral thinker demo Berlin open
Berlin on Sunday.
Several thousand so-called lateral thinkers encounter the police, the mood is heated, arrests are made.
Several registered demonstrations by opponents of corona measures and other initiatives had been banned in advance - because the police feared violations of hygiene requirements.
The lateral thinkers came anyway, gathered in various places across the city and confirmed the assumption of the authorities: In many cases no trace of a distance, and many of the demonstrators did not have masks with them - instead, anger and aggressiveness.
OT police spokesman Thilo Cablitz
The police were on duty with around 2,250 officers to keep the lateral thinkers under control.
That didn't work everywhere.
Some demonstration trains ran through the streets, especially in the west of Berlin, without a police escort, and in several places individual groups of police chains broke through.
In the afternoon, the police drove to the water cannons due to the acute location at the Victory Column.
