The organizers of the "Day X" demonstration in Leipzig are defending themselves legally against the ban by the city. An urgent application against the ban had been received, said the spokesman for the Leipzig Administrative Court, Dirk Tolkmitt, on Friday. The competent Senate will decide on this in the course of the day. The plaintiff was a private individual, the applicant of the demo.
Leipzig - The city of Leipzig had banned the event planned for Saturday with the motto "United we stand - In spite of everything, defend autonomous anti-fascism!" on Thursday, because an unpeaceful course was to be feared. In left-wing circles, there had been nationwide mobilization. "Day X" is a reaction to the conviction of student Lina E. and three co-defendants for attacks on alleged or actual neo-Nazis. Dpa
