Bavarian Plans Light Chain from Munich to Berlin with 600.000 People

By  Thursday, 3.12.2015, 17:03    General News

Inspired by an idea of a friend who is a writer, a Bavarian has set out to organise a chain of lights held by people reaching from the Marienplatz in Munich to the Brandenburger Tor in Berlin. He has calculated that some 600.000 people would be needed to form the approximately 650 kilometre long chain and took to Facebook to find them.

The idea behind the light chain is to bring people together for peace, freedom and tolerance, and above all against terror and right-wing extremism. It would also be a demonstration against the Pegida movement in Munich and other parts of Germany. He is planning the event to take place on December 19, starting at 7pm. Below is a map of the route. You can join on in via Facebook at "Lichterkette von München-Marienplatz nach Berlin-Brandenburger Tor" and by later today there should be web page for the event.
