The actor Volker Bruch justifies his participation in the #allesaufdentisch campaign in an interview. There is a discrepancy between the opinion expressed in the media and the information available. Criticism of the government must go back “to the center of society”.

The actor Volker Bruch said in an interview about the reasons for his participation in the #allesaufdentisch campaign. The Internet campaign, which, among other things, criticized the measures taken in the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic and the reporting on it, caused a sensation last Thursday. In an interview with the Berlin newspaper said fraction:

“If I see grievances and don’t name them, then I agree and accept them. I don’t want that. I want to speak up if I see a discrepancy between the opinion expressed in the media and the information available. Currently, for example There is massive pressure exerted on the unvaccinated, although the data situation says that a vaccination only protects you from a severe course. Herd immunity, which is taken as an argument for vaccination out of solidarity, will not exist. So why don’t we just leave it everyone is free to decide whether they want a vaccination for themselves or not. “

The actor also commented on reports that he wanted to become a member of The Base party. “I got to know smart people who are involved in the party. Unfortunately, there are currently very high internal tensions that I cannot clearly classify from the outside,” said the actor. “That is why I have not yet completed my application for membership and will not do so for the time being.” According to its own statements, the party Die Basis (“Basic Democratic Party Germany”) was founded in the summer of 2020 “as a reaction to the Corona crisis and the measures taken by the Federal Government”.

New action #allesaufdentisch calls for open discourse: artists and scientists in conversation

Bruch was already a prominent face of the #allesdichtmachen campaign in April. At that time, several people from the film scene criticized the handling of the corona virus with satirical videos. The action sparked controversial reactions – some accused the group of playing down the corona virus and demanding that the artists no longer work for public broadcasters. At the same time, there was a lot of encouragement for the campaign.

Bruch explained in the interview about his commitment to #allesdichtmachen:

“Our declared goal was: We have to bring criticism of the government back to the center of society and prevent anyone who criticizes being automatically referred to as a Nazi. That is completely absurd.”

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), the SARS-CoV-2 virus causes the respiratory disease COVID-19. On March 11, 2020, the WHO declared a pandemic. The basis for this is the global spread of an infectious disease with a high number of diseases and, as a rule, also with severe disease courses. According to official estimates, it is a dangerous virus and a disease that can be fatal, especially for so-called risk groups. In general, in addition to vaccinations, corona measures such as contact restrictions and the AHA + A + L rules – keep your distance, observe hygiene rules, everyday life with a mask, use the Corona warning app and regular ventilation – are essential. Regular use of PCR tests to identify potentially infected people so that they can go into quarantine is also considered useful by the authorities in order to identify the spread of the SARS-CoV-2 pathogen. The declarations of the WHO and the Robert Koch Institute responsible for Germany on the virus and the pandemic can be found here and here.
