Let the Coronadissidents Come to Berlin

Last Saturday a huge crowd of demonstrators gathered in downtown Berlin to protest the government’s coronavirus restrictions. Police attempted to shut down the demonstration under the Infection Protection Act, but the crowd booed the police and resisted. The event was too large to be stopped forcibly.

The organizers said that a million people participated in the protest, while the mainstream media gave an estimate of 20,000. Even if the first number is an exaggeration, the second is obviously absurd, based on panoramic photos of the crowd.

Many thanks to Hellequin GB for translating this video report, and to Vlad Tepes and RAIR Foundation for the subtitling:

Video transcript:

00:00   Yes, now we get back to Lion Media again with an update
00:03   from the Federal Republic, because yesterday
00:06   something really historic happened in the capital that we’re going to talk about today.
00:10   But first, if you don’t want to miss any more videos in the future,
00:13   click on “subscribe now” and click the bell.
00:16   Yesterday, the first of August 2020, the initiative “Querdenken 711” (lateral thinking 711),
00:21   who earlier organized the Corona protests in Stuttgart, called for a mass protest in Berlin
00:26   to send a signal against government arbitrariness,
00:29   and anyone who has been following my channel for a long time
00:32   knows how important it is that we make our critical voices heard,
00:35   because what has been going on in this country for months now
00:38   has nothing to do with democracy and freedom of expression.
00:41   The government’s pandemic measures are based on the opinions and assessments of a few
00:45   supposed experts, who in the past, for example, have massively contradicted themselves
00:49   on the subject of the mandatory wearing of masks, use scare tactics,
00:52   fear, and demand further draconian restrictions on our personal freedoms.
00:56   Doctors and epidemiologists who speak out against this catalog of government measures
01:01   are being defamed as conspiracy theorists or even placed in the RIGHT corner to keep them silent.
01:06   But what the government probably did not expect
01:09   is that this authoritarian strategy would backfire or trigger a mass awakening,
01:13   and during demonstrations like yesterday in Berlin would loudly detonate.
01:16   Here are a few scenes that took place in Berlin yesterday.
01:21   Thanks to all of you that put everything on its feet,
01:26   and that I’m able and allowed to speak to you.
01:31   Hello Berlin, hello Germany, hello Resistance.
01:37   These people who say that during the “Nazi Era” THEY would have been in the Resistance,
01:43   they would not have participated. Those are usually the people
01:49   who participate AGAIN today in establishing a totalitarian regime,
01:54   and YOU are the RESISTANCE,
01:57   and that is exactly why they will try to disparage us
02:02   as conspiracy theorists and to push us into the Nazi corner,
02:07   because they know exactly what they’re doing.
02:33   A nice day, that’s an announcement by the police.
02:45   Hey, guys, do the right thing, do the right thing, hey, do the right thing.
02:53   Just start looking into your hearts.
02:58   Please, please do the right thing, we’re also here for you,
03:02   and you’re here for us; let’s work together.
03:09   Thank YOU.
03:13   Thank you for choosing your heart.
03:21   You know you’re touched, and I thank you for it, do the right thing,
03:27   something loving, something warm.
03:32   Thank you.
03:35   This is an historic moment. You will go down in history as a hero, the greatest hero of all times,
03:41   if you say the RIGHT thing NOW.
03:44   We are here with a BIG HEART.
03:51   We ARE the people, 1.3 million,
03:56   who came here with a big heart [unintelligible]
04:11   Yes, as you can see, yesterday there were crowds of people for the freedom of the German people
04:15   on the streets of the capital. According to the organizers,
04:19   between 800,000 and 1.3 million people took part in the demonstration.
04:23   In addition, an article in the Berliner Morgenpost from August 2.
04:26   The mainstream media, however, report very different numbers of participants.
04:30   Tagesschau “Daily News” and Cohorts, however, speak of only 17,000 to 20,000 participants,
04:34   which obviously is a brazen understatement.
04:37   You just have to look at the videos from yesterday to expose this LIE,
04:41   or look at this comparison alone.
04:44   Above, the street on June 17, filled with people,
04:47   in front of the Brandenburg Gate at the Love Parade 2001.
04:50   At that time, ARD and ZDF reported over 1 million participants,
04:53   and below, a picture from yesterday: the same street,
04:57   packed full of demonstrators. But here, ARD and ZDF report only up to 20,000 people.
05:01   Find the discrepancy, and WHY do they LIE?
05:05   Because the government knows that they are wrong and systematically undermine the Constitution.
05:10   The awakening of the population must therefore be prevented at all costs.
05:13   Mass demonstrations like yesterday are an indicator that exactly that isn’t working.
05:19   This is exactly why the mainstream media has been sent out to defame the demonstrators
05:23   as right-wing lunatics and corona-deniers who put the health of the population at risk
05:27   because they do not abide by the rules of social distancing and the mandatory wearing of masks.
05:31   The government then played exactly this card and sent the police to the event stage
05:36   to end the demonstration for violating the Infection Protection Act,
05:40   which, however, worked poorly, because the masses resisted the call
05:44   to leave the demonstration and booed the policemen out.
05:47   The event organizer was then dragged off the stage, and individual speakers
05:51   such as Thorsten Schulte, aka Silberjunge, were arrested.
05:54   In addition, an article from Tagesereignis (Daily Event).
05:57   The SPD chair Saskia Esken wrote on Twitter:
06:01   Thousands of “Covid idiots” celebrate themselves in Berlin as “the second wave”,
06:05   without social distancing, without a mask. They not only endanger our health,
06:08   they endanger our success against the pandemic,
06:11   and the revival of the economy, education and society. Irresponsible.
06:14   Although, a month and a half ago, at the “Black Lives Matter” demonstrations in Berlin,
06:18   she wrote the following: Tens of thousands of demonstrators show solidarity
06:21   with “Black Lives Matter” everywhere in Europe,
06:24   and peacefully protest against racism and police violence.
06:27   Thank you. Even if Corona forces us to keep our distance:
06:30   we stand together and fight against racial discrimination.
06:33   And here is a picture of the “Black Lives Matter” protests in Berlin, where the distancing rules
06:37   and mask requirement were of course perfectly adhered to.
06:40   Yesterday’s protests were also taken up abroad.
06:56   Former US Ambassador to Germany Richard Grenell responded
06:59   to this post from the “New York Times”; he wrote:
07:10   So, the system is showing bigger and bigger cracks and the mass awakening is unstoppable.
07:15   All in all a great success for the Corona Critics,
07:19   and it may well be that the first of August 2020 will go down in history as Freedom Day.

4 thoughts on “Let the Coronadissidents Come to Berlin

  1. It warms my heart to see that there are still such large numbers who believe in freedom and are wiling to stand up for it. I was beginning to think that freedom was an out of date illusion, pushed aside to make room for “safety”. I am happy to be proven wrong.

    A white pill moment.

  2. An unbelievable reportage. What a crowd. That police officer was a good man put in a horrible position. I could not understand what he finally said and there was no translation of that section (probably because the protesters drowned him out). But you could tell that he was moved by the crowds and that he wanted so much to join them, but he also wanted to keep his job. Understandable! I can’t blame him; I would have done the same. This reporter has truly captured something historic. I just hope that You Tube will allow the video to stay up.

    • He was moved by the crowds , and He probably was thinking: “ what is happening to my country under this disgusting government..

  3. FYI: I clicked on the link to the 3speak platform where the video is posted.


    There is only one comment by Hive Watch that slanders Rair Foundation as a “plagiarist, spammer or ID thief.”:

    “Warning! This user is on our black list, likely as a known plagiarist, spammer or ID thief. Please be cautious with this post!
    If you believe this is an error, please chat with us in the #appeals channel in our discord.”

    Is Hive Watch even an arm of the platform? Or are they an independent website? I just can’t tell.

    In any case, it is outrageous.

    I also checked for the original post on You Tube by Lion Media. Luckily, it is still up on YouTube with 227K likes and 3,462 comments as of 8/4/20 at 10:43 am ET.


    Those comments are all in German, but they are largely positive.

    The slander against Rair Foundation really irritates me. On the positive side, they must see a great danger in their videos that they so mercilessly slander RF.
