Square

The city of Annaberg-Buchholz decided to give the whole market square (Marktplatz) to the christian fundamentalists. We will be on the so called butcher’s square (Fleischerplatz), next to the market place. This square will be too small for us all. But we will continue with our plan and will mount an feminist street party there ;)

Activities

There are the common restrictions as e.g. no alcohol, no glass bottles, flagpole no longer than 1,5m. We are happy about creative banner and signs, but please without advertisement for other purposes. Please note, that in the first rows there will be WLTIQ*. You find the demoroute on Aktionskarte #ab1606 (just provided in german).

Christian fundamentalists

The silent march from the assosciation “Lebensrecht Sachsen” (Right to life Saxony) starts at 2:30pm at Erzgebirgsklinikum (hospital). They will walk to market square (Marktplatz), where they announced to present 400 buggies and wheelchairs for their anti choice propaganda. We want to disturb them: We will shout, we will dance, we will be annoying so that their silent march becomes a desaster.

Information

You will get the latest information during the demonstration and also before from the Lauti (truck) or on Twitter (@ProChoice_SN // #AB1606). You will get the Aktionskarte #ab1606 from us in Annaberg-Buchholz. If you can’t wait, just print it out.

Weather

Currently it looks like good weather for demonstration. But please check before. And just in case, take some rain gear with you.

Fare

Please take beverage and food with you. We will care for water and there will be a street kitchen (Küfa) at Fleischerplatz, but we can’t plan for how many people it will suffice. There are some bakeries in city centre. Please note, that police will not let you that easy to every bakery. Next supermarket is a 15 minute walk away (see Aktionskarte #ab1606).

Kids space

We will have a Kids space @Fleischerplatz. Please watch out for.

Barrier-free

We will have a barrier-free Dixie (portable toilet) @Fleischerplatz and partly a translation into sign language.

Arrival

If you travel by public bus or car: Please be on time. From train station it is approximately a 10-minute-walk to Fleischerplatz. There are some parking lots for people coming with car (Parkhaus Gehrisch-Ruh (5min), Parkplatz Untere Schmiedegasse (5min) or Geyersdorfer Straße (10min)). Car controls are not common, but should be kept in mind. We know from the last years, that police is sometimes unlawfully controlling people on the street.

Support

We will be supported from street medics. Furthermore we will get support from Demobeobachtungsgruppe Leipzig (demo observation), who will document the procedures of the authorities. A demo photographer will be there too – so you can leave your cameras at home. If you take pictures by accident, ask people beforehand and please pixelize them!
