On Monday, the activists blocked traffic twice at the Luitpold Bridge, some of them stuck to the road. Three of the eight people involved now have to stay in Stadelheim Prison until December 2nd.
According to the Bavarian Police Responsibilities Act, citizens can be detained for up to a month on the basis of a judicial decision in order to prevent the commission of an administrative offense of considerable public importance or a criminal offence. This period can be extended by a maximum of one additional month.
The protest group "Last Generation" often makes headlines with their blockades or attacks on works of art. The activists want to draw attention to the destruction of the environment and climate change.
