- The leader of Germany’s largest anti-lockdown movement, “Querdenken-711,” has asked supporters to stop protesting until the spring.
- Michael Ballweg’s announcement comes after the German media reported he shared the profits from Querdenken merchandise and directed donations to the movement into his personal bank account.
- Ballweg never registered the group as an association, a company, or a foundation and is exempt from issuing invoices for donations.
