Cat-and-mouse game with the police: After the Stachus action, climate adhesives should now really peel off
Created: 12/20/2022, 6:35 p.m
Hand in hand protest: Two activists of the "Last Generation" glued themselves to Sonnenstrasse yesterday.
Next action of the climate stickers at the Stachus: Members of the "Last Generation" came again to stick themselves to the street.
Three people did it.
Munich - And in the end they stuck: As announced, some activists from the "last generation" came to the Stachus on Tuesday to protest.
The police were there too.
A veritable cat-and-mouse game developed between officials and demonstrators.
With the result that three people stuck to the street with glue.
More than a week ago, the district administration department had issued a general decree forbidding sticking actions on the street in connection with demonstrations.
One could be all the more excited when the most active announced the next action for yesterday, Tuesday.
It was supposed to start at 8 a.m. at the Stachus.
Climate sticker on the move again: More than 50 police officers on duty at the Stachus
Over 50 officers were there to monitor the situation.
At first everything was relatively harmless.
Seven activists gathered on a traffic island with banners to spread their messages.
When glue was found on three activists, these people came to the police station.
The others were sent away.

Only a short time later the activists of the "Last Generation" were successful.
At the intersection of Sonnenstrasse and Schwanthalerstrasse, two were stuck together and one of them was on the road by hand.
Traffic had to be diverted.
Shortly thereafter, three other activists tried to stick themselves.
Two were prevented by the police, but one succeeded.
The activists were removed from the street and taken to a police station.
A total of six men between the ages of 18 and 50 and four women between the ages of 21 and 42 were arrested by the officers.
After actions in Munich: Now the activists face high penalties
The police drew a positive conclusion from the operation: "Our concept worked," says spokesman Andreas Franken.
The police officers could have prevented several attempts at gluing – and if that didn't work, they were there quickly to clarify the situation.
"We can't flood the entire old town ring with forces," says Franken.
As reported this week, the police will now claim the costs of the operation.
At least 250 euros should be due.

Meanwhile, it is being checked whether the activists will be taken into police custody again and possibly even spend Christmas behind bars.
Two activists were already detained by January 5 after previous actions.
At the protest on Tuesday, there were several people who had only been released from the JVA at the weekend.
In addition, there is the question of the criminal consequences of violating the general decree.
"The consequences of violations result from the Bavarian Assembly Act," reports the KVR.
Accordingly, fines of up to 3000 euros are possible.
Those who lead the action could even go to prison for a year.
