"The BBC's Damian McGuinness in Berlin says some are from the far right and some are conspiracy theorists who do not believe Covid-19 exists, but others are ordinary people who simply object to the government's approach to the pandemic." When the right participates in protests amid a pandemic, the rhetoric revolves around 'freedom' and 'rights'.
