After verdict against Lina E.: "Tag-X-Demo" banned in Leipzig
Now the city of Leipzig has banned the solidarity demonstration for Lina E. According to the "currently recognizable circumstances", the security of holding the planned meeting was "directly endangered". It was to be expected an "unpeaceful course" of the demo, it said in a message from the police.
The organizers, however, want to defend themselves legally: An urgent application against the ban has been received, said the spokesman for the Leipzig Administrative Court on Friday (2 June). The competent Senate will decide on this in the course of the day. The plaintiff was a private individual, the applicant of the demo.
