Going for a walk
Objective evaluation of a walk
You can only judge one of these walks if you are there live. This is what happened on 05.02.2022 at 10:00 a.m. in Schwarzenberg in the Ore Mountains.
The number of participants was difficult to estimate, the walk stretched over about one kilometre in rows of two, three, four. Maybe there were 1000 people, maybe more. The participants were a representative cross-section of the population. Extreme groups? – Rather absent. It can be assumed that there were members of the AfD among them, just as all other political views could probably be found. Since I knew some of the participants personally, I can say that there were voters from the CDU (Conservatives), FDP(Liberals), SPD(Socialists), Left Party, Greens and Free Voters.
A non-negligible proportion consisted of nursing staff and medical personnel. The event was civilised and peaceful, public traffic was hardly obstructed, and if so, only briefly.
Freedom of assembly – wording of Art. 8 Basic Law (GG):
1.All Germans have the right to assemble peacefully and without weapons without registration or permission.
2.For assemblies in the open air, this right can be restricted by law or on the basis of a law.
