„Nicht rechts, nicht links“? Ideologien und Aktionsformen der „Corona-Rebellen“
Based on observations of demonstrations by the so-called ‘Corona rebels’, the author explores the question of where this movement against the lockdown measures is to be situated in the political spectrum. The campaign’s newspaper Demokratischer Widerstand [Democratic Resistance] is analysed with regard to this question. By way of participatory observation the author describes habitus and attitudes of the demonstrators and discusses a range of socio-psychological explanations for the more irrational behaviour and expressions shown by parts of the movement. Despite their proclaimed liberalism, the ‘Corona Rebels’ seem to be creating a movement clearly gravitating to the right.
