The Covid-19 pandemic triggered profound changes, some of which threatened to shake the foundations of liberal democracy. In Germany, government measures to contain the virus were accompanied by protests. What has remained unclear in the related academic debate so far is: What attitudinal patterns do emerge among the Corona-critical segments of the population – and by what narratives do crucial protest actors attempt to specifically address these orientations? The article explores the supply and demand side of the demonstration landscape by the example of Saxony and presents first-hand quantitative and qualitative data to describe the interplay between political entrepreneurs and mobilizable citizens.

The analysis is complemented by a critical examination of Levitsky and Ziblatt’s call for a “distancing” strategy.
