Thousands of bikers descended on Berlin on Sunday to protest a planned governmental move to ban the use of motorbikes on Sundays and public holidays to reduce noise pollution.
Protesters wearing their iconic leather gears were seen gathering at Olympiastadion in the German capital. The protest motorcade later headed towards the Brandenburg Gate.
One of the bikers Lars Boehler shared his views on the ban stating: «Of course we are ready to dialogue and to find constructive solutions. But we are also ready to stand up and fight against discrimination and the implementation of this unreasonable ban on motorbikes.»
According to reports, several protests against the possible motorbikes ban have been taking across Germany since May, when several federal states in the country announced they would discuss limiting the noise made by bikes.
