Würzburg, August 16.08.2023, 09, 00:XNUMX a.m – In the past few days, supporters of the Last Generation have unignorably brought their protest to the streets of Würzburg. The B 19 in particular became the scene of unannounced demonstrations yesterday. A local farmer was also there with his tractor to point out the increasing problems that agriculture is facing due to climate-related extreme weather events. 

When the protesters insisted on continuing their unannounced demonstration into the early evening hours, the police decided to surround a large group and arrest everyone in it.

A total of 43 Last Generation supporters were arrested and taken to one of the police stations in Würzburg. They had to stay in a police box until late in the evening, but were then largely released.

Seven people, including a father from Regensburg, were held in the police station overnight. However, they too are now free again.

Many of those temporarily arrested are now on their way to Nuremberg by train. Starting tomorrow, the protest will continue there, in the federal state where the fundamental rights that are now being buried by the federal government were formulated 75 years ago.

Nuremberg has already tried to stop such protests. In a general order, the city threatens anyone who takes part in Last Generation protests with a fine of up to €3000. Leading such a meeting could even result in up to a year in prison. Whether this will dissuade the supporters of the Last Generation from their plan remains to be seen tomorrow.
