Aalen (dpa/lsw) - Around 150 opponents of the Corona policy and so-called lateral thinkers demonstrated loudly on Thursday evening before a citizens' reception with Prime Minister Winfried Kretschmann in Aalen. 30 participants were registered, but the number of demonstrators was 150, said a spokesman for the city's regulatory office. A speaker explained at the rally that one was also there out of solidarity with Michael Ballweg. The Stuttgart "lateral thinking" initiator has been in custody since Wednesday evening for investigations into fraud and money laundering.
Some demonstrators held up posters such as "No vaccination, no mask requirement", others drew attention to themselves loudly with whistles. They also criticized German arms deliveries to Ukraine to defend itself against Russia. Kretschmann did not meet the demonstrators. Before the citizens' reception in the vocational school, he signed the city's golden book.
