The evacuation of the Flensburg station forest is apparently imminent.
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.
