Despite this, many people carrying foreign currencies that criticized the German government’s Covid-19 policy gathered in front of the Brandenburg Gate. Hundreds of demonstrators gathered in Potsdamer Square after the police did not allow the protest there. Here, too, the police, who did not allow the action, asked the demonstrators to abide by the hygiene and distance rules and leave the scene. More than 200 demonstrators who resisted the warnings from the police were detained.
