A corona demo had been registered in Krems for Sunday at 3 p.m. The police expected 300 participants, so over 50 officers were on duty.
At the beginning, however, only about 80 people met who chanted slogans such as “We are loud because our freedom is stolen”. The demo, which was directed against the Corona measures, started in the city park, went to the Mitterau district and back again.
According to Magistrate Director Karl Hallbauer, there have been a few established administrative violations that have been reported. For example, when people walked too close to strangers in the household without mouth and nose protection. “Otherwise everything went perfectly and was well accompanied by the police. There were no major problems,” says Hallbauer.
