From this week’s fashion shows to the latest political news… Here is what was on our radar at Fräulein – of what to do, watch and read this weekend.
Another week of lockdown lies behind us and although a few rays of sunshine would be quite nice, we are actually almost relieved that the good weather is still waiting for us post-lockdown. But there is a ray of hope at the end of the tunnel. The German government has announced freedoms for vaccinated people, if the last Covid-19 vaccination is administered 14 days prior. The curfew, as well as contact restrictions, are then to be lifted. Another glimmer of hope: increasing vaccinations and restrictions finally seem to be having an effect and the numbers are dropping, especially here in Berlin.
After activists, including Fridays for Future, filed a lawsuit against the Climate Protection Act of 2019, the German Constitutional Court ruled that it is partly incompatible with our Basic Law – the legislature must now make improvements and grant climate protection. You better save our planet…
Also causing discussion is TV host Markus Lanz, who invited right-wing politician Alice Weidel on his show. Talking to right-wingers – a sensitive topic. Thanks to fact-based argumentation and a virologist who can hold against twisted numbers, she was not given a platform to spread ideological opinions.
