Street demonstrations are prohibited in city blocks where supreme authorities of a land are located (Germany).
Wearing the same shirts, jackets, suits, footwear at public gatherings is forbidden because it can be used to express common political views (Germany).
The legislation distinguishes between demonstrations and gatherings. A gathering is any group of people in a public thoroughfare or a public place that can disturb the public peace. A gathering can be dispersed by public law enforcement agencies after two demands to disperse have caused no effect (France).
If a crowd uses violence en masse against the authorities or resists measures and does not disperse as ordered by the police, then instigators and ringleaders should be sentenced to imprisonment for up to four years while other participants should be fined or sentenced to imprisonment for up to two years (Sweden).
