  • A large crowd of people staged a "sit-in" at Berlin's historic Brandenburg Gate on Saturday to protest the German government's coronavirus restrictions
  • The sit-in followed a march that was cancelled earlier on Saturday for not adhering to rules of social distancing and use of face masks
  • The march included anti-vaccine groups and neo-Nazi organizations
  • Current coronavirus guidelines in Germany include maintaining a distance of 1.5 meters or 5 feet between one another in public, and where this is not possible, face masks should be worn
  • Police warned the over 17,000 protesters who participated in the march that they will only be allowed to demonstrate if they wore face coverings and maintained social distance
