    Germany has been easing its coronavirus lockdown restrictions since late April, but some people argue that the process is not happening quickly enough.

    A live broadcast shows activists taking to the Wasen festival grounds in Stuttgart to protest against the lockdown measures. According to the organisers of the event, they expect about 500,000 people to take part in the protests. 

    Germany has confirmed 620 new COVID-19 cases over the past 24 hours, with the total count reaching 173,772, the Robert Koch Institute said on Saturday.
