Anti-Nazi protests in Munich
Munich. Saturday, 13th November right-wing nationalists are planning a "Heroes memorial march" through Munich city center. This will raise a large counter protest among the population. This year, for the first time, the city has not tried to ban the march legally as it was in 2008 and 2009 when the case failed both times at the Administrative court. For about 3 years, 6 various anti-nazi organisations have been gathering demonstrators from all over Germany. On Saturday the police expect 200 to 300 right-wing extremists with more than 8000 anti-nazi protesters.
The biggest task for about 1800 policemen is to make both sides stay away from each other and to keep the demonstrations peaceful. The demonstration starts at 10 am and will go though thel main streets in Munich city center: Marienplatz, Sendlinger-Tor, Maximillianplatz, Stachus, etc. Massive traffic delays are expected in the city.
