In Germany a big protest in Berlin on Saturday against pandemic restrictions has ignited a debate about the limits that can be placed on the right to public assembly. The German Minister for Justice has affrimed that right while at the same time insisting that rules like wearing masks must be observed. Most of the 20,000 people taking part in the protest did not follow guidelines to keep their distance from each other and to wear masks, which led to a number of arrests. As infections rise in Germany, the best way to deal with the pandemic looks set to cause further debate.
