1:19 pm
great controversy about masks but i believe fewer people will fall ill if oaks wear masks to play this enormously speaking the nose expresses our desire for self actualization now we're. i think a piece of cloth over it and our spokes person with our mouths we can no longer practice self actualization we can no longer say what we want to for the simple fact that you know interesting approach but was a god i like to say i don't need to examine all aspects but i want to tell you that when i got ill i was contagious before i went to hospital i was right logically in quarantine with my children. during that time i wore a mask not one of these a medical mask these amazing things and i managed not to infect my children. by thinking of my husband had code that i had coded but we protected our kids with these masks and didn't like them should i mistake that i bought it they are you sure that's so. commonly in a price i mean it's
1:20 pm
a colorful mix of demonstrators including new agers conspiracy theorists hippies and covert deniers as well as those who are simply critical of the corona measures but they're all united by their deep mistrust of politicians that's another reason why priceless here to win back their trust the authorities stipulated that the protesters must social distance most are complying to chrysler's relief protests like this are currently taking place across germany and constanza the police say around $4000.00 demonstrators took part over the weekend the organizers had announced almost 8 times that many would attend on stage they speak of love people make hearts with their hands and then start spouting hate chanting lying press lying press this is part of. many of the speakers here see themselves as victims or oppressed people this evangelical pastor says masks are an instrument of bondage

and claims they are being used to enslave people as african-americans once were in the us i know that that was slave drivers who enslaved the people. with a system must have outwardly chrysler keep. cool yet she knows that all right groups have used demonstrations like this to spread their propaganda. in august protestors in berlin away tykes plug in and imperial war flags considered to be symbols of neo nazi sentiment. they even carried them up the steps of the reichstag the german parliament a scene which outraged many. of the city of konstanz has banned the use of such blacks at the demonstration yet priceless still heard far right rhetoric being spouted there all the same. it's been here all day i can't believe that we just celebrated 30 years of german reunification we have a democracy to celebrate but also to defend here i'm constantly hearing that we
1:22 pm
live in a dictatorship and things are on the verge of collapse i can't believe it i can't believe how they treat people in the work of decades of peaceful democracy. 6 months earlier chrysler isolated in this hospital room was having trouble breathing . i'm being given oxygen and can use this nebulizer. she documented her experiences and put her corona diary up on twitter to this day she's not fully fit she finds it hard to stand for long periods get short of breath and has nosebleeds during the demonstrations she takes a rest break in her hotel room. last march she spent 6 days in the hospital fighting. my mother my husband and i said goodbye and weren't really sure if we'd ever see one another again. which meant we were also under pressure to settle our affairs and not only was i breathless and had this fear of suffocating we had to
1:23 pm
decide what to do. he brought the children into the room and they could only say good bye to me through the window and we thought. that was the last time they should at least have the chance to say goodbye. but it all turned out well her husband who also contracted cope at 19 stayed home and cared for their 3 children while social distancing so for median family communication that transcends old boundaries. there is our yellow line. and behind it is my i don't want to go this way we can talk. oh i don't know. in the hospital you know priceless really missed her husband and children. this is in a really long to see my family. this morning my daughter face time to me and we
1:24 pm
kissed and cuddled. she was so unhappy because her homework wasn't going so well and she cried. she could see even more but i could only hug and kiss her over the screen. but not really broke my heart shocking that. she wants to help others avoid such heartbreaking situations. but back at the demonstration she's met with nothing but skepticism. how much are they paying you to do this voluntary i got no money i'm a natural path i don't believe in co bit at all absolutely nothing and i believe that you are being paid to do what you don't need to worry about me not at all don't worry natural paths don't fear any virus not one but they fear liars natural paths are very afraid of paid lawyers. to get circle but you keep saying i'm being paid because i'm doing this as
1:25 pm
a volunteer that upsets me you've hurt my feelings because i couldn't believe it right from the start because we have our herbal tinctures in the cupboard and they help and then the fear of any virus vanishes in a flash. very hard to put your certainly earning well from this you certainly are. not getting any money i'm doing this in my free time i know you get some kind of perks i'm sure of it. might be sad that you think so poorly of others. chrysler remains patient she wants to give everyone a chance and not push them into the arms of the far right. there are also people here who want to bring down the government or assemble anti democratic forces. those who go onto the streets with. high citizens. i think that's the wrong way if we want to have a democracy we have to fight for every citizen. not to leave them to the extremists
1:26 pm
. counter-demonstrators have also come to constance but unlike heisler they just want their opponents to leave. by. here on. the counter protesters believe that for all just one place their trust in science as do most germans they split up into little groups and go all over town the police say some 2700 counter demonstrators were here over the weekend many of them feared that groups of krona skeptics are being infiltrated by the far right and neo nazis and they want to take a stand against that he didn't. vote on bags commissioner against anti semitism is also speaking at the gathering he's read colleen a priceless corona diary and wanted to meet her in person who. is going to think it's not enough of the. tells priceless that he's heard some clearly
1:27 pm
anti semitic remarks here. i just posted the jewish community in nam are it if the people have concerns over criticism you can talk about them but raising imperio move fired is insulting jews and wishing politicians would die it is not ok if the . same thing happens to me often during discussions of the day i'd say thanks for being so frank that pleases me and i'll give some thought to what you said and still time and again came another volley of insults the message never got through i could. late i made peace signals smoke signals there was no appeasing them it wasn't a constitution on basic norms of a defunct democracy with a most people want things to stay that way but these people need to scapegoat someone they comply and that's politicians like you and scientists like me. and i'm fortunate in that time and again i find some jewish communities after all in this together i think the stem just starts true i'm so happy we got to meet here.
1:28 pm
once again she returns to the corona skeptics rally. good but eventually even calling up heisler has had enough can you prove you had to have it in my shorthand . and i'm always all worked up at the end of a day like this but i think it's extremely important to engage people because politics begins at demonstrations like this so i listen closely and gather lots of info so then i sort myself out and feel better. we've made lots of mistakes in the past especially in our debate culture mention that i denigrate people as covidien from the start i can't conduct a dialogue with them at eye level so feel more dialogue and less hate that's calling up priceless call along with convincing people to take coronavirus seriously.
