    German Court in Weimar Declares Lockdown Unconstitutional

    A LANDMARK legal decision declared that regional containment policies – including lockdowns, social distancing, prohibitions on gatherings by family or friends) are UNCONSTITUTIONAL. The judge called the lockdowns a “catastrophically wrong political decision with dramatic consequences for almost all areas of people’s lives.”

    The judge ruled that the government violated the “inviolably guaranteed human dignity” under basic German law. This momentous, affirmative, liberating decision was handed down by a court of law in Weimar, Germany;

    I'm sure this will catch on and spread to other European countries as well. Perhaps even here in North-America it might make an impact. Canadians for example are fed up with constantly changing rules and lock-downs.

    But... oh, what will happen to us, if we let down our guards? Are we all going to die??

    nah not mad......irked....vexed.....exasperated....I wonder why you may ask......lets just have a wee look....

    so...in light of the number of people dying around the world you think this was a wise and sage and well thought out apposite observation? Perhaps something worthy of the moment.....captures the zeitgeist as it were....events of a humdrum nature but not worthy of your concern.....a mere source of annoyance akin to a mozzie buzzing round the lughole; a fly to be swatted. Dead and dying people are of no consequence and worth little or no compassion or empathy?

    So.....there you have it..... that's what put me in a state of irked'ness.....:D...... ttfn

    Thanks for trying to explain your reasoning to me. Since nobody else has responded to this German article, it must be irksome to most people. I will not pursue it any further and leave it be.
    Have a nice evening, and may the virus never catch you. :D

    A judge on a city court considers himself a constitutional expert and throws a 200 Euro fine out, for a illegal party.
    That is big news ?

    Give me a break.

    Here is your break....

    The Dutch government has been told by the court to reverse its coronavirus pandemic curfew after The Hague ruled there was no legal basis for it and called it an infringement on people’s rights.
    In a statement, The Hague declared that the government's use of the Extraordinary Powers of Civil Authority Act – an emergency act which allows the state to bypass the legislative process to impose a curfew in “very urgent and exceptional circumstance” – was not justified in this case during the Covid-19 crisis.

    “The Preliminary Relief Judge ruled that the introduction of the curfew did not involve the special urgency required to be able to make use of the [act],” the Hague continued, noting that the government had had time to discuss such a curfew beforehand, before ruling that “the use of this law to impose curfew is not legitimate.”

    The curfew is a far-reaching violation of the right to freedom of movement and privacy and (indirectly) limits, among other things, the right to freedom of assembly and demonstration.

    The country’s Justice Ministry says it is now studying the ruling.

    After the Dutch government imposed the curfew on January 23, citizens were legally required to stay home between the hours of 9pm and 4:30am unless they had a valid excuse, and they were warned that they could face fines if they refused to do so.

    Valid excuses to go outside during the curfew included emergencies, essential work, to seek medical assistance, and to walk a dog on a lead.

    The Hague's decision was made after a group known as the Virus Truth Foundation filed a lawsuit arguing that the curfew was an infringement on human rights and the Dutch constitution.

    The Netherlands experienced several nights of rioting over the curfew, which resulted in burnt cars, looted business, clashes with police, and hundreds of arrests.

    Well, people have had it with the restrictions. We here in Canada have also been on lock-downs. Being an elderly person it doesn't bother me much, but the rest of the people want to go on with life.
    A group of smart business people have gotten together to help the Government to speed up the vaccinations.
    The Canadian Chamber of Commerce unveiled yesterday an advisory group of 20 chief and senior executives to help businesses navigate their businesses through restrictions and public health concerns.

    Chamber president Perrin Beatty says the businesses involved will look for ways to protect their employees and customers and help with vaccination efforts.

    Among the items on the group's agenda will be encouraging employees to get vaccinated and protocols for using rapid tests that have languished in warehouses despite repeated requests from companies for their use.

    Beatty says the lack of government strategy on the use of rapid tests is a real challenge to reopening parts of the economy safely.

    He says doing nothing until everyone gets vaccinated will take time, and businesses have to be willing to do whatever they can to help hurry the pace of shots and the use of personal protective equipment.


    "It's not simply sitting on the sidelines and telling government what they should be doing, but taking what actions businesses can themselves to help to protect their customers and their employees," Beatty says.

    "There are frustrations there, but the goal is not to be critical of government, it is to assist government and to do everything that we can, either in concert with government or by ourselves, to be able to protect public health and to hurry reopening," Beatty says.

    That is the right attitude, instead of protesting and rioting and causing mayhem. We are all in this together and by doing our share of cooperating we get this pandemic licked that much faster. That's my opinion!
    I hope this has been helpful in enlightening your troubled mind, Mr. gnoib!

    I would suggest cremation, winter, side walk gets slick and we need some bio stuff to put on the ice.

    You and I might just be able to come to a certain amount of agreement based on this sentiment!?
