Toten Hosen singer Campino made a political speech at a rally in Berlin.
The event industry demonstrated on Wednesday (October 28) in Berlin with a car parade and a march and wants to draw attention to its precarious situation in the corona pandemic. At a closing rally, Toten-Hosen frontman Campino (58) spoke to the demonstrators and it became clear: "Obviously, politics slept through the summer. A lockdown and opening strategy in black and white is simply not enough," the musician said in agreement According to media reports. It is "not about Christmas. It is about a whole year and thousands of lives."
In addition to Campino, other celebrities from the music world showed their solidarity on Wednesday. Roland Kaiser (68) took part in the demonstration and said in an interview with rbb that he expected "that freelancers, the solo self-employed, will not be forced to go to Hartz IV, but that they will be supported in the same way as other professional branches. " Trumpeter and composer Till Brönner (49), however, emphasized: There is no other professional group than that of the organizers, "who can take a year off from one day to the next – and that will be our job."
The action alliance #AlarmstufeRot organized the protest in Berlin. The hotel and restaurant association Dehoga and the Federal Association of the German Tourism Industry also called for participation. The alliance calls for joint aid programs, "which are more specifically geared towards the needs of companies than the funding programs previously launched by the government," says a statement.
