Candles and torches for the Kiosk at the station

The group with torches and candles outside the kiosk.

Around 20 people gathered at the kiosk next to the U-Bahn platform at Oberursel’s main station this evening (Friday, 7th December, 2012), to once again light candles and torches and hold a vigil in protest over the decision to close the kiosk next Friday.

They will gather again as the kiosk closes for the last time at 5.30pm on Friday, 14th December.
