Anti-COVID-19 protesters were stopped by German police from entering Reichstag

In Berlin, several hundred protesters have attempted to enter the German federal parliament after the police stopped a mass demonstration against the COVID-19-related restrictions in effect in the country.

The attempted break-in took place after an estimated 38,000 people gathered in the German capital on August 29, to protest against the country’s coronavirus policies. After about two hours of the demonstration, police called off the protest, pointing to the disregarding of social distancing rules.

More than hundreds of people tried to force their way into the building and were able to break through a security barrier and run up the stairs before being stopped by police. Many of those involved sported clothing and flags associated with the far-right Reichsbürger movement, which denies the legitimacy of the modern German state.
