Hundreds of antifascist activists condemned coronavirus sceptics and anti-lockdown protesters as they marched through Berlin on Friday night.

Police supervised the peaceful march, where demonstrators could be seen holding banners condemning “corona deniers and Nazi pigs.”

Thousands of protesters rallied against a proposal to incorporate coronavirus measures into Germany’s existing infection protection law in the German capital on Wednesday, with police deploying water cannons and arresting over 150 demonstrators.

The law subsequently passed both houses of the German parliament, and will give the German government a legal basis for future coronavirus restrictions.

The German government and German Chancellor Angela Merkel have previously justified the partial lockdown implemented at the start of November as necessary to prevent the healthcare system from becoming overwhelmed and to ensure that coronavirus infections are kept at a level where contact tracing may take place.
