Repeated appeals and arrests
“Our emergency services have already been forced to use baton and pepper spray against aggressive participants in the assembly. We call on all participants to peacefully exercise their basic rights and to comply with the rules,” tweeted the Lower Franconia police.
Eight people who, among other things, tried forcibly to break through police barriers were arrested. Four of them are to be brought to the main hearing on Monday morning as part of an accelerated procedure due to resistance against law enforcement officers and assault on police officers, according to the Lower Franconia police.
“We call on all participants to adhere to the restrictions and to clearly separate themselves from rioters and criminals!” The meeting had not been announced, the Schweinfurt police station was on duty with numerous support staff.
