Square

This year, we managed to claim the market square for our protest, so we’re in the middle of the town.

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 route of our demonstration on our Aktionskarte (aka action map – 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 the local Annenkirche (church), where they will end with talks and prayers. 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 // #AB2505). You will get the Aktionskarte (action map) 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 marekt square, but we can’t plan for how many people it will suffice. There are some bakeries in city centre. Please note, that police may not let you go in every direction. Next supermarket is a 15 minute walk away.

Kids space

We will have a Kids space with some games, a bounca castle and people to take a look after them. Please watch out for the sign.

Barrier-free

We will have a barrier-free Dixie (portable toilet) @market square

There are some parking lots for people coming with car (Parkhaus Gehrisch-Ruh (5min), Parkplatz Untere Schmiedegasse (5min) or Geyersdorfer Straße (10min)). Stop-and-search by police 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.
