Several rallies by opponents of corona measures and counter-demonstrations were registered in Hamburg on Saturday. By far the largest gathering of opponents of vaccination, to which up to 15,000 participants were expected, must not take place after a ban by the police, which was also confirmed by the Hamburg Administrative Court on Friday.
