WATCH LIVE: Tens of Thousands Rally Against COVID-19 Restrictions in Berlin after Ban Overturned

Ruptly has posted a live feed of tens of thousands of Germans rallying against COVID-19 restrictions.

Ruptly is live from Berlin on Saturday, August 29, as protesters skeptical of the government’s coronavirus measures are expected to gather for a rally. Thousands had signed up to attend the rally against coronavirus measures before it was banned by city authorities over health concerns. This decision was later overturned by the city’s administrative court, which allowed the rally to go ahead under the condition that social distancing measures should be respected by participants. A counter-protest by opposing groups is also expected to take place. German Chancellor Angela Merkel originally announced a series of measures in March, in order to curb the spread of coronavirus. The measures have been gradually eased nationwide, however in the past weeks the number of new infections has significantly increased.
