Iris Mayer, Leipzig

On the day with X, Jule Nagel stands in the south of Leipzig and looks over Alexis-Schumann-Platz. “Looks peaceful,” says the left-wing MP on Saturday afternoon, looking at 1,500 people who have gathered under the motto “Freedom of assembly also applies in Leipzig”. Nagel sees this as scandalously limited. Because the city of Leipzig already banned the planned major demo on Thursday, saying the danger to public safety was too great.
