Half a dozen activists from the climate protection movement have meanwhile blocked the Deisterkreisel in Hanover. Two of the activists stuck to the asphalt, a police spokesman said. Because of the blockade, traffic is backing up on Bornumerstrasse, Deisterstrasse and Westschnellweg, among other places. Local public transport is also affected. Police advise avoiding the area.
