Germany bans 5 pro-Palestine Nakba demonstrations
Berlin has been doubling down its crackdown on pro-Palestine activity.
On Thursday, Germany announced that they are banning five Palestinian demonstrations that have been registered for the coming days.
Palestinian activism groups announced recently that they will be protesting against "Israel" and its occupation on the day of expulsion - or, the Nakba - particularly on Saturday and Sunday.
Berlin authorities allege that there is "immediate danger" of "anti-Semitic chants," "glorification of violence" and "acts of violence."
May 15 - Nakba Day - marks the 1948 forced expulsion of almost 800,000 Palestinians from their homes in Palestine.
Last month, Berlin issued a ban on pro-Palestinian demonstrations in the capital as Palestinians held a protest against "Israel's" violent practices in Palestine.
Germany is a close ally to "Israel" and has been silent on their persistent crackdown in the occupied West Bank and Al-Quds.

German police arrests pro-Palestine demonstrators
German police announced the arrest of several people following a pro-Palestine demonstration in Berlin.
The police claimed that several demonstrators chanted "anti-Semitic" slogans during the demonstration in Berlin's Kreuzberg and Neukölln districts.
On her account, German Interior Minister Nancy Wieser has stated, on Sunday, that "anti-Semitism has no place in Germany," adding that "the rule of law must take firm action against it."
"No matter where or who they come from, we should not become accustomed to anti-Semitic offenses," Wieser added.
