Middle East activists fail to complain in court
From Jacob Wetzel
In a long-standing debate about the events of the Middle East conflict in Munich, the city has now prevailed with a resignation: the municipal cultural center Gustig does not require initiative for an event with the title “Apartheid by the State of Israel” – Germans are watching “The Second Way” provides the policy. The Bavarian Administrative Court confirmed it on Friday afternoon, a day before the planned start of the incident. The initiative failed with an urgent application before the Munich administrative court. However , The second example did not argue with the content of the incident, but with protection against infection.
The organizer is the “Bundestag 3 for Palestine” (BT3P) initiative, which is closely related to the “boycott, division, sanctions” (BDS) campaign against Israel. He has three activists behind him; The two of them attended a lecture on the BDS campaign in Gustig in 2015, after which the controversy in Munich only increased. In 2017, the city council decided in a sensational resolution that the campaign should no longer be discussed in urban areas. Since then, the city has suffered multiple defeats in court. Recently, the Bavarian Administrative Court announced in a ruling that BDS restrictively restricts freedom of expression. The city appealed to the Federal Administrative Court.
The BT3P initiative also wanted to go to Gustig for the current event. He dismissed it in the context of a political issue. This termination now took place in court. For reasons of safety from infection, the city is currently not providing any room for events with spectators, court spokespeople point out. The reasons for the material did not matter.
The initiative speaks an excuse: “Munich City’s political blockade policy” has prevailed at this point. The event should take place digitally on Saturday. After that, starting in front of Gustig at 6.30pm, people will publicly protest against the city of Munich.
