Another user, Darren of Plymouth, commented “There have been anti-lockdown protests today in Berlin. Don’t expect to see this on the BBC tonight, just more Death, PPE. and Boris Bashing.#TurnOffTheTv

In another video, a protester was carried away by Berlin police, which another user highlighted:

“In the middle of Berlin another Saturday protest is underway against the lockdown measures introduced – and slowly being lifted – by the Germany government. #COVID19 One of the protestors was just carried away by police officers”

International news video agency Ruptly posted a video on Twitter of protesters at the Polish-German border. “Crowds gather at German-Polish border in #Zgorzelec to protest #coronavirus lockdown #Poland #Goerlitz

Euronews reported that “More than 100 people were on Saturday arrested by German police for flouting the coronavirus lockdown measures they were protesting against.”

A high-profile protest took place at Berlin’s Rosa Luxemburg square where demonstrators voiced their grievances against the Wuhan virus lockdown measures that the German government has implemented.

On the protest organizer’s website there was a demand for the government to put “an end to the state of emergency.”

In a statement, police claimed that it repeatedly asked protesters to comply with social distancing rules but was then compelled to bring in reinforcements when protesters ignored their requests.

“A total of 105 people were identified and administrative offenses and criminal proceedings for violations of the containment measures in connection with the Infection Protection Act were initiated,” the police statement read.

According to the Robert Koch Institute, Germany has 152,438 confirmed cases of the Wuhan virus and 5,500 deaths.

The Attorney General on His Way Out?: Trump Mulls Firing Bill Barr, Advisers Trying to Dissuade Him

Trump is unhappy about more than just Barr’s recent voter fraud comments.

Published

on

President Donald Trump is considering firing Attorney General William Barr, with the Washington Post reporting Wednesday evening that Trump “remained livid” at him.

On Tuesday Barr said that the Justice Department did not find evidence of “fraud on a scale that could have effected a different outcome in the election.”

An unnamed senior administration official told the Post that although Trump is upset about Barr’s comments, he’s also unhappy with Barr about other matters, such as his previous lack of action on the FBI’s investigation into the Trump campaign and his handling of John Durham.

The president is pressuring Barr to release the “Durham report,” which could implicate officials in using the investigation to target Trump for political reasons. Trump also sees Barr’s secret appointment of Durham to DOJ special counsel as a “stall tactic.”

AG Barr Reveals John Durham Was Appointed Special Counsel Weeks Before 2020 Election

In the wake of Election Day Attorney General Barr authorized federal prosecutors to “investigate substantial allegations” of voter fraud. But in his comments Tuesday, Barr claimed that “most claims of fraud are very particularized to a particular set of circumstances or actors or conduct.”

“They are not systemic allegations,” said Barr.

Trump may want to fire Barr, but several advisers are trying to persuade him not to, according to the unnamed senior official.

Either way, it’s tough to see how Barr remains attorney general for much longer. If Joe Biden pulls off the steal and gets inaugurated, he will certainly replace Barr with his own AG. And if Trump hangs on for his second and final term, he may very well want to clean house and start afresh.
