Nuremberg, August 17.08.2023, 12, 00:XNUMX p.m. - After supporters of the last generation had already caused blockages on access roads in the west of Nuremberg this morning, they are now taking their protest against the government's violation of the constitution to the heart of the city. There is currently no way through on the two large streets in front of the main train station, because the protesters, who have gathered there in even greater numbers than in the morning, are determined to make their concerns unignorable. Ultimately, it is about nothing less than the right to life and physical integrity, which the government is currently questioning through its actions.

The police intervened from the beginning, but were unable to prevent the blockade because the protesters were once pulled off the street and slowly but decisively re-entered the street.

Also the well-known one Jesuit Father Jörg Alt gave a speech at this meeting.
Alt explained in advance: 
"I appeal to the state government, the parties, the media, associations and society: use the opportunity of the blockades to discuss the associated problems and topics! Because it's about nothing less than the basis for survival of our society, our civilization, and indeed humanity!

Criminalizing the protesters, sanctioning them with general orders or even using preventive detention does not solve any of the problems that have been mentioned and that will inevitably arise. […] Listen to the message, stop locking up the ambassadors.”

With their protest in Nuremberg, those involved are defying a general decree that the city of Nuremberg had issued to prevent precisely such protests. Participation in the meetings is punishable by a fine of up to €3000, and leadership can even be punished by up to one year in prison. You can find the entire general order in the appendix.

The people involved in this morning's protests were initially arrested and taken to police stations. However, many are currently being released. As of 11 a.m., 00 supporters were still in police custody.
