A group of anti-lockdown protesters refused to wear masks when returning from a meeting with other skeptics in Germany.

The group celebrated their ‘victory’ over airport staff by sharing photos of themselves smiling with their faces uncovered on the plane.

A member of the group said they all had “medical exemptions” but did not provide more information.

Other passengers said they were “coughing up” and “acting like spoiled kids” during the altercation.

The protesters were traveling to London Heathrow from Berlin where they had met with other activists from across Europe to discuss that the pandemic “is a lie”.

One of the group’s members, Charisse Burchett, said on Twitter that not wearing a mask was their ‘last protest on German soil’, but also claimed that the ten Britons trying to board the flight were granted medical exemptions.

After being criticized on social media, she turned to Facebook to provide a longer explanation of what had happened.

The anti-vaccine activist, who describes herself as “a rebel, not a slave,” said: “We have been through a stressful time at the airport. A friend had problems with her reservation, then we were stopped by the police and asked why we were not wearing masks in the terminal.

“They didn’t accept our medical exemptions, so I left. My friend was then picked and searched because she was not wearing a mask.

“In the gate of the departure lounge we saw other Brits without masks and we sat with them. One guy did all the talking and he was very brave. He stood firm and made us all be brave, because then we had a lot of police and officials all standing above us to intimidate us.

“Calls were made and a lovely guy from our airline came out and checked our exemptions and said everything was fine. ”

Ms Burchett said she took the ‘cheeky’ photo with relief coming out of the ‘tense situation’ and posted it ‘to promote medical freedom’.

She claimed masks on flights were “not contagion but control” and said anyone can take them off while eating or drinking.

The group had participated in the “World Doctors Alliance”, an event in which medical professionals said “Covid-19 is not true”.

Sharing a video from the conference, Ms Burchett tweeted, “We were there to support the doctors who speak out against the lies being told to you.

“The courageous doctors who need to be heard. What is happening is a global crime. I will not be ashamed to oppose tyranny.

The original photo was posted to Twitter after Wednesday’s flight and sparked hundreds of comments. One of them said: “Please never come back to Germany again”. Another person, who said he worked in an intensive care unit, said: “I sincerely hope that none of you and your family end up there. “

Someone claiming to be on the same flight told Mail Online the group “behaved like spoiled kids” during the argument with airport staff.

They added, “They were universally condemned by all the other passengers at the airport.

“I spoke to a very nice young man who really had a medical exemption but who thought ‘it’s because of people like that that I just wear a mask and try to keep going.’

“German police and security have acted professionally at all times to try to find out why they would not be wearing their masks.

“The police only arrived when they were angry with airport staff who wanted their doctors to take note of the ‘medical exemption’ which is the rule in Germany. ”

The passenger added that he did not know why the women were ultimately allowed to board the plane.
