9:02 am
accusing authorities of infringing on people's rights the demonstrations remained largely peaceful but there are concerns about the growing influence of right wing extremists. unfamiliar scenes for a country where large gatherings and close contacts of battles thousands defy distancing rosenstock got to protest the coronavirus restrictions families with children young and old. it's been young but i'm not because i think the restrictions of gone too far. more and i don't think wearing a face mask is necessary in order to rise i know it's clearly about limiting civil liberties and i'm always in favor of freedom of the demonstrators include some who believe in conspiracy theories others who believe forced vaccinations are coming. research or vic stream ism all of a decade says disparate groups and you know it's an across germany to oppose the restrictions so. it's clearly
9:03 am
a protest citizen protest based on the feeling that something has gone wrong in these last weeks but that feeling is being used and manipulated by the extreme right. money is that. the government is monitoring the protest movement with concern worried that the mood in the country could sour. as this is the mitchell it's a questionable mixture this is gaining traction and it could potentially lead to the radicalization of some individuals that's what that's what i'm worried about is going all of us was. trouble arose around the edges of one demonstration in nuremberg of the police forces attempted to break up the rally was what. we've observed some peoples in the extreme rights movements hanging around the edge of the demonstration acting aggressively. the police say they included some well known members of germany's far right see. well for more on this let's bring in kate
9:04 am
brady so kate seems like quite a lot of people turning up to these demonstrations what are they so angry about which restrictions do they object to the most. well it seems that these protesters are effectively accusing the medical workers and politicians here in germany of spreading widespread panic and also infringing their freedoms and their rights juice to the down measures if you will in recent weeks of course germany hadn't seen quite as strict damages as some other countries but there are still contacts restrictions in place albeit that there are plans in place now to ease those in the coming weeks depending on how that reproduction rate that you mentioned that develops which of course we now know is above $1.00 and also depending on how the number of new cases grows or declines or whether we'll see
9:05 am
that plateau in the coming weeks but it does seem it is difficult to pinpoint exactly what unites these groups there's a real mix spread of people there from everyday citizens to the extremes of germany's political spectrum with people from the far left and as we heard there in the report from the far right as well with some known holocaust deniers and conspiracy theorists there as well so it does seem though that one issue they seem to all agree on is that opposition or rather that critique of the mainstream politicians right now. now kate is this a growing movement that we're seeing or are these just several fringe groups coming together. ok as we have seen these demonstrations growing in recent weeks what started out as a few dozen people gathering here in the capital in berlin has now grown into several 1000 people in a handful of cities across germany which we saw this weekend that said they do
9:06 am
still seem to be a minority and according to a poll that came out just a couple of days ago 2 thirds of germans still support the measures that are currently still in place that have been the restrictions that have been imposed by the state governments around the country but of course even that is a significantly lower number than earlier on in the pandemic when over 90 percent of of the nation according to the same pollsters actually supported the restrictions that were in place at the time so it certainly seems that there is a sense of fatigue setting in here in germany but we could also be seeing something that was really referred to by a leading viral just here in germany just a few weeks ago at the idea of prevention paradox where people begin to see only the situation that they're in so of course these preventative measures that have been taken in germany seem at least to have helped the government get a grip on the pandemic and had a relative success compared to some other countries so it might seem that sometimes to some people at these restrictions seem
9:07 am
a little over the top but of course as we noted the situation in germany still remains fragile and the government is keeping a close eye on the new number of cases and that all important reproduction right. brady thank you so much for your reporting. well around europe countries are grappling with how to relax restrictions and allow more businesses to reopen here in germany restaurants in the northern state of meth member western pomerania have opened their doors again diners can now return to restaurant tables though they must sit 1.5 meters apart from other groups and staff have to wear masks the state has one of the lowest infection rates in germany but authorities warn lock down measures could return if infections increase. all right let's take a look now at the latest developments in the corona virus pandemic the number of covert 1000 cases has passed the 4000000 mark that's according to johns hopkins
