 Vigil in Hanover: For facts, against conspiracy myths  NDR.de - News - Lower Saxony

Status: 01/14/2022 9:02 p.m. In Hanover, more than 2,000 people took part in a vigil for solidarity in the corona pandemic on Friday. Prime Minister Stephan Weil (SPD) was also there. The event was directed against the trivialization of the corona pandemic and corresponding conspiracy myths. An alliance of the Evangelical Lutheran Church of Hanover, the Friends of Hanover, the German Federation of Trade Unions (DGB) and the alliance “colorful instead of brown” called for a “vigil for solidarity, cohesion and democracy”. According to the police, around 2,500 people gathered.

Onay: Opinions yes, “false facts” no

Mayor Onay warned against believing in “alternative facts”. Hanover’s Lord Mayor Belit Onay (Greens) described vaccinations against the corona virus as indispensable. Corona is the most common cause of death in Germany. Society must be seriously concerned if people lose touch with reality and believe so-called alternative facts more than science. “We must and can endure opinions, but not false facts.”

Bahr: “There are splitters on the edge”

“This society is not divided. There are splitters on the fringes,” emphasized Hanover’s evangelical regional bishop Petra Bahr, who is also a member of the German Ethics Council. The participants also gathered on behalf of the many people who were particularly affected by the pandemic or who were working to fight it. Bahr said that those who call for violence, threaten people with death and spread anti-democratic or anti-Semitic conspiracy myths should not have power.

Action for Democracy in Celle

Similar activities are planned elsewhere. In Celle, the “Living Democracy” alliance has registered a protest for Saturday morning. Trade unions, parties and networks against right-wing extremism are taking part in the event on the Great Plan. The Corona protests organized by allegedly right-wing groups represented part, but not a large part, of society – according to the message. In Bad Nenndorf, those responsible for the “Bad Nenndorf is colorful” alliance organize a rally with speeches and live music every Monday.
