In September 1988, a superintendent of the Protestant Church in Leipzig, Friedrich Magirius, called a stop to Leipzig opposition groups holding the Monday peace prayer in St. Nicholas’s Church. In reaction, on 24 October 1988, Udo Hartmann, Frank Sellentin, Rainer Müller, Anita Unger and Uwe Schwabe (l. to r.) presented their opinion to churchgoers on banners. They had to read out their demands in front of the church. These were the initial steps leading towards the subsequent Monday demonstrations.
