    There's a leaked internal threat analysis document of the German Federal Criminal Police warning about anti-lockdown activists possibly attacking companies producing vaccines or vaccination centers.

    Background is that there was a "Querdenken" protest planned for tomorrow at BioNTech, the German company that brought out the first vaccine with Pfizer (the city of Mainz offered the protesters a different location and referred to restrictions, the protest announcement was withdrawn subsequently). The police document states that in such locations "damages will be likely" and "physical attacks possible", and that the likelihood of such attempts is relatively high due to high media exposure.

    Foreign and industrial espionage - both on-site and via cyber domain - are also considered a threat in the document, in addition to theft (although that risk is considered low). The German government is currently in the process of forming a strategy to vaccination logistics. The German military has offered providing transport and guarded storage for vaccines in that context.

      The "Querdenken" ("lateral thinking") organisation that is the subject of the Dec 3rd intelligence committee inquest into possible formal observation by domestic intelligence gets up to 40,000 people into the streets when holding political rallies.
      Querdenken is now formally under observation by State Domestic Intelligence as an extremist group in Baden-Württemberg state. Other states as well as the federal domestic intelligence service are evaluating joining in on that; in neighboring Bavaria Querdenken isn't under observation as a group, but individuals within it for their activity.

      Primary items cited for extremism seem to be:
      • organizational overlap with Reichsbürger "sovereign citizen" groups, in particular in recent weeks
      • conceptual overlap with anti-semitic and conspiracy theorist groups
      • attempts to overthrow constitutional order by intending to enact a new constitution
      • activities related to the group such as the attempted storming of the federal parliament on August 30th

      Police and courts nationwide have been more active in hindering Querdenken protests. Some images from Mannheim next door to me last weekend, and that's for a protest group with a range of 700 people on Telegram of which 10% actually attended:

      Setup above seems to be pretty standard at Querdenken protests throughout Germany in the last 2-3 weeks. Berlin actually fired watercannons on protesters for the first time since 2013 three weeks ago. For Mannheim: Out of 70 people that police "intervened with" 50 were banned from the city for the day, 10 got fines for not wearing masks and 7 were arrested for violating a court ban for the assembly. Mannheim also has a curfew due to being a hotspot, i.e. anyone on the street after 9 pm gets fined.

        Police in Bavaria yesterday searched three apartments in connection with a sabotage attack on railways by anti-lockdown activists on January 6th. Several banners with political slogans had been arranged to block a high-speed rail line. One of the banners was rammed, leading to an emergency braking and the train being lightly damaged.

        Under German criminal law the act is considered terrorism if committed by a group. Similar attacks on railways are relatively common.

            Somewhat related:

            In Den Helder in the Netherlands a 37-year-old man was arrested in mid-March for planning to bomb the former town hall of the city due to its current use to vaccinate people against Covid.

            https://abcnews.go.com/Health/wireSt...enter-76943173

            Den Helder is also the main base of the Royal Dutch Navy btw. The Netherlands have seen some violence in this regard before: In January during wider riots a test center was set on fire, in early March another test center was attacked with a pipe bomb. In a vfew places in Germany there has been similar arson or attempted at test centers by opponents.

              Belgium is currently hunting a rightwing-extremist soldier who disappeared from his base with multiple weapons, including an assault rifle and some anti-tank rockets. He left behind a note stating he "would not be caught alive". The man previously threatened a virologist who works as a senior advisor with regard to the pandemic for the Belgian government.

              Some of the rockets have been found with his car so far.

                An anti-vaccer nurse at a vaccination center in North Germany apparently prepped syringes with saline solution only.

                The woman came to public note when in an incident on April 21st the switch was discovered by another nurse. She initially claimed to her colleague that she had dropped a dose and was covering her mistake that way, but was reported for it. As a precaution the center called in all 197 people jabbed that day for antibody tests at the time. On May 1st the employer had sufficient data to assume there may not have been such an "accident" (by that time antibody results were in for all 80 people who had received their second jab, which none showing the necessary antibody levels) and both fired the woman and reported her to police.

                Police investigations found that the woman was posting conspiracy stuff online and is thus assumed to have had a political motive and to have done so throughout the time she worked there. It is somewhat assumed that she fully intentionally hired on as a temp nurse with the Red Cross to get into the vaccination center.

                Based upon her shift plans throughout the time she worked there authorities are now assuming 9,673 vaccinations on 8,557 people between March 5th and April 20th to have been tampered with. The affected - 8.7% of the county's population - have been invited to get new vaccinations, they're actually postponing the closure of the center originally planned for Sep 30th. For the 1,116 for whom both vaccinations were performed during her shift times they're offering Johnson & Johnson, as it only needs one jab.

                    P.S. with regard to the high numbers:

                    It's a district vaccination center with full-scale assembly line organization. This nurse in that process never had to do with patients, her only job was taking syringes and drawing vaccine into them before handing them down into the vaccination lines. One dose goes down those lines every 30 seconds pretty much, which is how they get to the almost 10,000 people. It is likely that she only handled part of these doses though, there is no documentation exactly which syringe which doctor took off of the stack, and which of the nurses drawing them up handled which syringe. Among those from the "accident" day that could be checked for levels about 20% - including the six that are known to only have gotten saline - never developed antibodies and were thus re-vaccinated.

                    Of course she's silent about the accusations. It's somewhat doubtable they can frame her with much, other than the six doses from the "i dropped one" accident she admitted to - that's also the only cases she's been charged for so far.

                      My wife ran vaccinations for her hospital clinic for about 6 weeks in FEB-APR this years.

                      The vaccine & syringes were under 2 person control once they were cracked out teh box right up to the injection.

                        That would cost money though.

                            A security workup would too, but if the USS Hornet can do that on every new volunteer then it can be done...
