Freiburg (dpa/lsw) - Climate activists in Freiburg cleared a university lecture hall they had occupied on Monday. A spokeswoman for the activist group said that the lecture hall was left voluntarily after the week-long campaign to enable a conversation with the rectorate. The management of the university had made the eviction a condition before entering into a dialogue.
The results of the talks with the Rectorate immediately after the eviction have not yet been finalized. According to a university spokesman, Rector Kerstin Krieglstein also took part in the exchange. The university supports the substantive concerns of the group, said the spokesman. However, the occupation of lecture halls is a violation of the law and unacceptable.
