 The  city administration has confirmed that it has submitted an administrative assistance request to the police for the evacuation. This is justified with the current contact restrictions in Flensburg. NDR Schleswig-Holstein has received the letter to the occupiers. As our Flensburg reporter reports, there are now around 100 demonstrators and roughly the same number of police officers on site. ©

 The  situation is still calm. A police spokesman said there was still hope that the activists would leave voluntarily. Talks would continue.
