E.he probably next Wednesday the Chancellor and the country leaders will extend and tighten the Corona restrictions, the political rat catchers should still use the time to stir up fears and spread untruths.
Those who even see the dictatorship approaching in Germany with an additional paragraph in the Infection Protection Act are recommended to take a look at the post offices of the administrative courts. Urgent applications have been piling up there for weeks, directed against everything that the instrument case has to offer in the fight against the virus: against the mask requirement, be it in public spaces or in schools, against the closure of restaurants, tattoo studios or fitness studios, but above all against requirements for demonstrations and rallies.
Shaking your head over stereotypical court order
On Thursday afternoon, the judges in Frankfurt bowed for a few hours over the verdict of the city against further “lateral thinkers” protests that are planned for the evening on Paulsplatz. And declared the ban at the democracy stronghold to be illegal. The decision is an indication that the rule of law is not silenced by the 18-point catalog of Section 28a IfSG.
On the contrary: Presumably, now that the legal basis, just called by judges, is in place, there will be even more intense disputes in the courts about which assembly bans are “absolutely necessary” in the fight against the pandemic, whether the closure of companies is proportionate or whether there are regional differences Infections would have to be considered more closely.
One can shake one’s head at the stereotypical court ruling in Frankfurt: Despite all the bad experiences in Leipzig and on the weekend in Frankfurt, “lateral thinkers” are allowed to move to Paulsplatz because freedom of assembly is still to be granted with mask and distance. The corona deniers cheer. And don’t even notice how ridiculous they are when they mock the state yesterday and celebrate its third power today.
