The protection of assemblies cannot be guaranteed by the Berlin Police
Stuttgart/28.10.2020. Due to the events on 25.10.2020 in Berlin, QUERDENKEN-711 has decided to cancel the demonstration on 30.10.2020. During the demonstration on October 25, 2020, the Berlin Police repeatedly caused considerable disturbances.
It is the task of the police to protect assemblies as a basic right (Basic Law Article 8). Already at the large demonstrations of QUERDENKEN-711 on August 1, 2020 and August 29, 2020, the right of assembly was not protected. In fact, the assembly on August 1, 2020 was even illegally dissolved.
At the assembly on October 11, 2020, the police broke the arm of the assembly leader Stefan Brackmann (QUERDENKEN-213). The meeting on Sunday, 25.10.2020, was marked by many arrests and a disproportionate action of the Berlin Police.
Since the Berlin Police are not willing or able to protect assemblies, we decided with a heavy heart to cancel the assembly on October 30, 2020.
In return, the police of Baden-Württemberg knows about the importance of basic rights and will protect the assemblies of QUERDENKEN-711 in a cooperative and friendly manner. Michael Ballweg expresses his sincere thanks for this. We are now waiting for the results of the declaratory action for the demonstration on August 1, 2020 – the inspection of the files makes us optimistic that the administrative court will confirm the illegality of the dissolution.
We have engaged a law firm to examine claims for damages against the State of Berlin. Now we are using our energy to prepare for the demonstrations on 07.11.2020 in Leipzig and on 31.12.2020 in Berlin.
Thanks to Querdenken-711 for the right to publish.
