About a hundred supporters of the ''Dügida'' gathered last night in the capital of NRW.
Düsseldorf - Around 19:25 o'clock the protestors moved to the Friedrich-Ebert Street across the Karlstreet, the Stresemann square, the Scheurenstreet, the Aderstreet, the Harkortstreet, Graf-Adolf-street, the Konrad-Adenauer-Square and back to Friedrich Ebert-Street. The demonstration ended at 20:30 o'clock.
The police shortend the original route of the demonstrations, in order that the mosque would be still available for the night prayers. But before the demonstrations, a lawsuit was submitted by the Dügida supporters to the administrative court in order to stop the shortanage of the orginal route. The resposible judge decided to lift the restrictive pad and allowed the Dügida supporters the anticipated route.
Several hundred people attended couter-demonstrations at 18 o'oclock infront of the main station in Düsseldorf. The counter demonstraters advertised on the social media plattforms a ''flash mob''. At 19 o'oclock the counter-demonstrations ended with 200 participants smoothly. The assemblers tried to remove at some sites the shutter grids but the police officers prevented that.

At 17 o'oclock the Rheinbahn stopped leading trams and busses to the main station. The police also sealed the traffic around the demonstrations. The police blokades were stopped at around 20 o'oclock.
