‘Merkel must go, democracy must stay!’ Anti-lockdown protesters detained, doused with water cannon at central Berlin rally (VIDEO)

Protesters have taken to the streets in downtown Berlin to denounce a bill that would enshrine lockdown measures into German law. The police detained several people and deployed water cannons when the crowd refused to leave.

Thousands have gathered at the iconic Brandenburg Gate, which is located in the heart of Berlin, near the country’s parliament building, the Bundestag. Protesters held signs reading “Wake Up,”“Free Speech,” and “For Enlightenment. Peace and Freedom.”

One person carried a banner with the words “Merkel must go, democracy must stay!” referring to Chancellor Angela Merkel.

Barricades were set up to prevent protesters from getting too close to the Bundestag. The police were filmed detaining several people.
