German courts ban 'Querdenker' anti-lockdown demos

Regional German courts have imposed bans on "Querdenker," or "lateral thinking" demonstrations that were due to take place this weekend against coronavirus curbs.

Gatherings were planned in both Dresden and the Bavarian city of Kempten this weekend, which prompted legal proceedings and court rulings on Friday evening.

Bavaria's Administrative Court agreed with the local authority that a ban on gatherings by groups of mostly COVID-deniers was necessary to prevent the risk of infection. The Querdenker movement, which opposes Germany's current lockdown measures, initially planned an 8,000-strong demonstration and a subsequent march with 2,000 people.

The founder of the initiative, Michael Ballweg, was also expected to participate in the Kempten protest.
