Bundeswehr-advertising : dispute Flecktarn Tram in Potsdam

Potsdam is arguing for weeks doggedly, whether the Bundeswehr is allowed to advertise on a tram or not. A few days ago, the city Council discussed even on the advertising of "". In Berlin, trams and buses with this full-scale advertising in the "Flecktarn" – Design drive for almost a year without response. Currently, a tram and a double Decker with this advertising move, BVG spokesman Markus Falkner said. Protests have not been against it.

six years Ago, however, had stopped a troop of masked at Kreuzberger Mariannenplatz, a BVG-monoplane with military advertising and sprayed. On a Transparent the activists demanded "No future for the career killer – poor advertising stop." For politically motivated offences, the competent state protection of the police at the time had reported that the armed forces-Bus "is specifically been looking for".

"The German armed forces is contrary to neither law, nor immoral"

In Potsdam, Germany is hotly debated. The left alternative group of "The Other" had called on the city Council for a stop of the advertising. Because it will give a "heroic myth and war operations played down". A politician of the "Other" claimed to be in the town hall that the sight of this tram in the case of a previously stationed in Afghanistan soldier "have triggered a post traumatic stress situation". Also, the Greens joined the criticism. The Potsdamer Verkehrsbetriebe stated, the advertising is up 31. March and booked "with the directives of the company consistent".

it also provides for the BVG. "The Bundeswehr is contrary to neither law, nor immoral," said BVG spokesman Markus Falkner, she was even enshrined in the basic law. Strict traffic is operating only in the party's political and religious content. In these cases, the order of the BVG, which is active company Wall may only after consultation with advertising space to sell. I have Heard that the BVG rejects this, as a rule, – not to provoke a dispute.

Wall and the BVG work since 35 years, a few weeks ago, the company has won the bidding for a further six years, the 6200 display cases at bus stops to equip with ads. In 2017, the BVG, including the daughters took, according to the annual report, 24 million euros with advertising.

the Trouble with advertising has always existed. In 2006, complained many passengers because a Bus for a large-scale brothel drove advertising through the area. Since then, explicitly sexual motifs, "" taboo, therefore, the LPP refused in the past year, also a visually eye-catching condom advertising. In 2016, there has been a fierce legal dispute with an advertising Agency. This wanted to switch for 20 000 Euro advertising for an employers ' Association. This is the BVG rejected because "ads with party-political content" was inadmissible. The Agency is a defendant, then the public, that in the case of the BVG, apparently, "in the future only for dog food and yogurt advertised" should be. In the past year, a Swabian from the flashed to the petitions Committee of the house of representatives, had complained about this BVG-advertising: "love Swabia, we bring you to the airport."

Only a "small part" pasted or painted

make a note of The local friends, for decades, the "Berlin transport leaves", meticulously advertising on buses and trains with associated car number. Currently, it is not advertised, only for the German armed forces (Tram 9040 and Bus 3388), but also for Spanish ham, a TV series, an expensive pair of glasses, and the "Rammstein"concert in the Olympic stadium in the summer. Theoretically, advertising in almost all vehicles would be allowed, said BVG spokesman for Falkner, was, in fact, always covered only a "small part" or painted. Only to new vehicles, no advertising foils may be glued, because then the warranty would expire on the BVG-yellow varnish.

After several fatal accidents, the BVG, the police had agreed that the Front of the tram is not covered, so it is good – sunshine – yellow-to see. While Bundeswehr-Flecktarn is in order, had rejected the transport companies years ago, a black Tram – not because of the color, but because of the claim to the tire manufacturer's Advertising: "We're going black."
