A crowd of people possibly numbering up to 20,000 protested Germany’s coronavirus lockdown policies in Berlin on Saturday, objecting to the restrictive measures their national government had put in place in response to the pandemic.
The demonstration, in which Germany’s conservative and right-wing political movements were prominent, was titled “Day of Freedom — The End of the Pandemic.” Police are estimating that 17,000 people attended, showing that opposition to many coronavirus social restrictions is not only present but strong in continental Europe.
The coronavirus epidemic in Germany hasn’t been as severe as what other European countries have experienced, with the nations of Italy, Spain, Sweden and the UK incurring the worst outbreaks of the disease on the continent. Almost 10,000 people have died in the nation of more than 80 million, although there are indications that a second wave of coronavirus infections may be coming about as more people grow tired of restrictions.
Demonstrators at the Berlin event mostly declined to wear masks, and some bore placards that read “Corona, false alarm” and “We are being forced to wear a muzzle.”
In a questionable development, Berlin Police have claimed that they’re going to instigate legal proceedings against organizers of the demonstration for failing to properly mandate social distancing within the march event.
It’s not just America where there’s widespread skepticism of coronavirus shutdowns and restrictions. The Berlin gathering, which authorities maintain numbered in the tens of thousands, may have been the single largest individual anti-coronavirus lockdown demonstration to occur in the world.
Italian Nationalist Leader Matteo Salvini Could Face Up to 15 Years in Prison for Rejecting Migrants
The Italian deep state is after Salvini.
Italian nationalist leader and former Interior Minister Matteo Salvini could face up to 15 years in prison for rejecting third-world migrants as the country’s deep state takes aim at the populist firebrand.
The Italian Senate voted 149-141 last week to remove parliamentary immunity for Salvini. This will allow the Italian deep state to charge Salvini for his decision as Interior Minister to detain third-world migrants at sea who were trying to land on Italian shores.
“If anyone thinks the are going to scare me with a politically-motivated trial, you’ve got the wrong man,” Salvini said to the Senate before the vote.
Additionally, prosecutors in the city of Palermo are accusing Salvini of overreach for not allowing 80 migrants to disembark from a trafficking boat. Salvini remains completely defiant in the face of potential charges.
“Defending Italy is not a crime. I am proud of it, I would do it again, and I will do it again,” Salvini said last week.
Political analyst Franco Pavoncello said that the charges could backfire and put Salvini back into the limelight. The COVID-19 pandemic has slowed the momentum of Salvini and his League party because they have not been able to hold large rallies due to the added restrictions.
“At the moment Salvini generates little media interest. The decision to strip him of his immunity would re-open the case and could whip up media attention,” Pavoncello said to AFP.
“Those who vote to send him to trial in a bid to create political problems for him could end up giving him the limelight instead,” he added.
Big League Politics has reported on how Salvini remains a political force in Italy even after he was forced out of power by his former coalition partners:
The leader of Italy’s League Party, Matteo Salvini, was recently ousted from his position as the nation’s Interior Minister after the Five Star Movement betrayed him and allied with the globalist establishment last month.
But the anti-migrant, pro-nationalist leader is down but not out. A massive rally was held in Salvini’s honor on Sunday where he vowed that he “will never give up” on his fight against European Union (EU) globalists.
Salvini told the “traitors” in the new government that he would come for his rightful spot at he helm of the nation the before long.
“Those who thought that I would be worn out and need a break, I give my word of honor, I will work even more than before,” he told the audience.
“I won’t give up because our country deserves everything. I’d rather concede seven ministry posts to traitors now, that we will win back with interest and transparency in a few months,” Salvini added.
The League estimated that 80,000 supporters rallied on behalf of their leader in Pontida, which has significance to the nationalist League Party because it was the site where medieval leaders took a legendary oath to repel a foreign emperor.
Salvini’s supporters were emboldened by the rally where their leader called for a peaceful and democratic revolution in Italy against the coup attempt that drove him from power.
“I like Salvini because he is the only one that fights the idea of a European Union, which I do not support, because I believe the European bureaucrats do not do Italy any good,” said Luca Carminati, a laborer fears his job will be lost due to massive taxation and regulation imposed by globalist bureaucrats.
“Salvini fights that idea. He is trying to give value to the Italian people again,” Carminati added.
A new coalition between the Five Star Movement and the establishment socialists of the Democratic Party rules over Italy for the time being. A recent survey published by the il Sole 24 Ore newspaper reports that 55 percent of Italians disapprove of the new coalition, while Salvini’s party remains the most popular in the country with 34 percent of support of Italians.
Similar to the cases of U.S. President Donald Trump and Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro, Salvini is being persecuted by the deep state of his country for standing with his people against globalism.
