Violence has unleashed against German journalists covering demonstrations in three major cities


Reporters Without Borders (RSF) fears that the repeated assaults against journalists in Germany will have a chilling effect on the media. The most violent attack took place on May 1 at a protest in the German capital, leaving four journalists injured, but similar incidents occurred also at other demonstrations in Berlin, Dortmund and Hamburg.

Since 1 May, reporters from various German audio-visual media have been targeted by physical attacks at protests against the anti-coronavirus restrictions and at the May Day demonstrations.
