Demonstration demanding the release of antifacist activist Paul – 08-08-15

Free Paul demonstration

Today at 1 PM around 200 demonstrators gathered at Munich Central Station to show their mischief about local Antifacist/Anti-PEGIDA activist Paul being held in jail. As mentioned earlier  Paul got arrested for carrying a small flag during the protests against Lutz Bachmanns visit. On Wednesday a judge decided Paul has to stay in jail until he is arraigned on the 15th of september. The main reason according to the judge is – summed up from this statement – that Paul is not registered living anywhere and could try to escape law enforcement. The demonstration was very peaceful besides some “besorgte Bürger” –  as we know them from Freital – started provoking at Karlsplatz, Stachus.

As stated by the police: if small flags are used to transport the message of the rally, same are allowed – around 50 activists carried small flags today.
