Solidarity with the struggling people in Greece from Hamburg (Germany)

For the last half a year the solidarity with the people and comrades in Greece who struggle against the System and the results of the capitalist crisis was increasing. Especially in the situation of having the winners of the crisis all around you, its sometimes not easy to find out where to start. In general a big part of society in Germany is not getting what the consequences of the crisis – the cuts – mean for the lives of people in Greece. As ‘Winners’ and playing a leading role in the crisis you don’t feel it financially as well as economically here. Besides benefits for imprisoned comrades and solidarity-activities like letter-writing to prisoners and manifestations there were more discussions about the crisis as well as the situation in Greece and our stand towards it. As one result comrades decided to show their revolutionary solidarity in attacking the reality around here, too. In different cities attacks for the prisoners as well as attacks against the banks and profiteers of crisis have been taking place.

Some attacks in solidarity with the struggles in Greece happened in Hamburg:

2012

27 & 28 February – 6 banks attacked in solidarity with the struggling and striking people in Greece

3 May – “Telecom” parking-lots visited and company cars torched. Telekom is a crisis winner and joint-owner of Greek telefone company OTE. Also Telekom is with their businesses an example for the increasing civil-military cooperation.

23 August – “Telekom” building smashed and painted.

25 August – An illegal street/neigbourhood-fest in solidarity with the struggles in Greece. Banners, discussions and information given out among the thousands of visitors. In the evening some fire and banks lost their windows.
