After the tightening of the requirements for adhesive protests in Munich, climate activists want to show the "absurdity" of this step - with a lot of paste.
- According to the police, climate activists failed on Wednesday (December 14) in Munich because of the wet and cold weather when they tried to get stuck on a street again.
In the morning, two people tried to stick themselves to a roadway in the immediate vicinity of the state chancellery, said a police spokesman.
"But the gluing didn't work due to the weather."
Climate action in Munich fails because of black ice – but the ad is still there
The two protesters therefore only sat on the street with a banner.
More than 30 police officers were on duty, also to divert traffic.
The police spokesman said that there were no major traffic jams or traffic problems in the city center.
The group itself announced that the two activists had covered each other with paste to show the "absurdity" of the city of Munich's tightening of rules on the protests, which has been in effect since Saturday.
The general decree means, among other things, that calling for unannounced adhesive protests on the
streets of Munich is punishable by law until the beginning of January.
According to the police, a violation of this order will also be checked after the protest on Wednesday.
According to the investigators, the two activists, a woman and a man, are also expecting reports of coercion.

A police spokesman said that the fact that the superglue used next to the paste bath wasn't enough to fix it to the street didn't change anything.
Officials are also considering whether to apply to a court for longer preventive detention for the two protesters.
A spokeswoman for the group "Last Generation" emphasized on Wednesday that the city's tightened rules would not be deterred from the adhesive protests.
The spokeswoman continued: "The action should show: If you ban us from these actions, we'll come with buckets full of paste." On Tuesday, investigators had searched the apartments of members and supporters of the group in several federal states - including in Bavaria.
In this context, the leading public prosecutor's office in Neuruppin is investigating the suspicion of the formation of a criminal organization.
