Germany: Court Upholds Ban on Palestinian Protests

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Berlin 2021

In the wake of recent pro-Palestinian demonstrations both last year and in recent weeks that have turned violent and featured anti-Semitic speech, the Berlin police have banned demonstrations this weekend. Their ban was appealed, and the courts have upheld the ban on demonstrations this weekend over concerns of violence and anti-Semitic speech. Demonstrators had hoped to mark this May 15, the date of Israel’s independence, as their “nakba” (Arabic for catastrophe.)

So now they have a double-nakba.

The below article from Berliner Morgenpost is translated by Fousesquawk.

Courts uphold bans on Pro-Palestinian demonstrations

Caption: On 15 May 2021, thousands marched at a pro-Palestinian demonstration through Neukölln. It resulted in riots.

The Berlin Administrative Court and Higher Administrative Court upheld bans on pro-Palestinian demonstrations over the weekend.

Berlin. The announced pro-Palestinian demonstrations for the weekend remain banned. The Berlin Administrative Court, in an emergency session, upheld the police ban and rejected the corresponding applications from the event organizers. “The experiences with similar gatherings last year and April and May 2022 give rise to fears that violence will break out among event participants,” the Administrative Court explained. “The police’s prognosis of danger is (accepted).”

In the past, bottles and rocks were thrown at police, and pyrotechnics were used, the Court further stated in its explanation. It is also to be expected that participants would make legally punishable statements such as public incitement to crime and hate speech.

The highly anti-Israel and reaching anti-Semitism atmosphere, to the point of denying the right of Israel to exist, identified at previous gatherings, carries a readiness to use violence, and thus, has an intimidating effect. In view of these direct dangers, the bans are also “reasonable”.  The applicants have filed an appeal against this decision with the Higher Administrative Court of Berlin-Brandenburg. In the evening, this (court) rejected the appeal and upheld the ban. The decision is not appealable (final).
