Beethoven disrupts anti-migrant rally

"[BBC] German police are taking legal action against theatre staff in Mainz for disrupting an anti-migrant rally by singing Beethoven's Ode to Joy.
"About 300 people gathered over the weekend near the theatre in the south-western city to protest against the government's "chaotic" asylum policy.
"But speakers were interrupted by the theatre staff singing "All people will be brothers" from the symphony.
"Police say the right to free assembly is guaranteed by the constitution.They argue that it is therefore a criminal offence to disrupt such events."
