New Year's Eve is just around the corner and with it new rules and measures enacted by the German government. Like last year, the German government is banning the sale of fireworks and pyrotechnics and is issuing a burning ban that cities and municipalities can decide on specifically. The federal government's website states: "This year, too, no New Year's Eve fireworks may be sold. The aim of the regulation is to prevent injuries on New Year's Eve in order to relieve the heavily used hospitals." and "The cities and municipalities define central places where the burning of fireworks is generally prohibited."

The justification given by the state for the fireworks ban is, of course, pure hypocrisy. This is also supported by the so-called ban on assemblies and gatherings that the government has issued for New Year's Eve. The German government writes "On New Year's Eve and New Year's Day, a ban on attendance and assembly will be implemented nationwide." Instead of full hospitals, the German state wants to prevent gatherings of people because the state fears that the justified anger of the masses could be unleashed on that day. Even before the crisis, New Year's Eve was marked by attacks on the police, after all, fireworks lend themselves to that. That's why last year there were already stricter measures on New Year's Eve and a ban on the sale of fireworks, and that's also the reason why it's the same again this year.

However, the renewed open and direct ban on gatherings stands out again. In 2021, the German state was rather restrained with open bans on assemblies. After all, the right to assemble is enshrined in the Basic Law, which states: "All Germans have the right to assemble peacefully and without weapons without registration or permission." After ample resistance to the measures again arose here in the FRG in recent months and numerous masses took to the streets in defence of their democratic rights, the right to assemble is now being taken away again. In this way, they are repeatedly breaking their own Basic Law, which they themselves propagate again and again as the highest good of the FRG. Thus the new federal government under Mafioso Chancellor Olaf Scholz is also showing its reactionary face in action.
