The car traffic on Ludwigstrasse was temporarily stopped because the demonstrators were walking on the lane, said a police spokeswoman. In Sonnenstrasse, the crowds are right across the tram tracks.

If the initiators of the so-called “walks” are identified, they could face a fine.

An alliance of several initiatives had previously complained that the cancellation of the planned Wednesday demonstration on Geschwister-Scholl-Platz in front of the university denied them their right to freedom of assembly.

According to the police, around 120 people protested against “lateral thinkers” at the same time on Odeonsplatz. An alliance called for “solidarity instead of oath” from the left, the Green Youth and other groups.

Background: The alliance registered a “moving event” with 5000 participants. They wanted to walk through the city center – in the middle of the rush hour traffic. The district administration department (KVR) banned this on Tuesday – and moved the demo to Theresienwiese. Maximum limit: 2000 participants.

The organizers did not like the KVR ban. Cancellation! They write on Facebook: “We cannot avoid seeing these requirements as unacceptable. The purpose of the meeting cannot be achieved in this way. “

Now there are thousands of people on Munich’s streets again!
