Helmut Pohl, comrade of the Red Army Faction passes away (Germany)

Thursday, August 21st, 2014

International Solidarity is our Arme

I can still see myself sitting there with Gudrun and Andreas, in front of us a long report on Vietcong attacks in the US military’s hinterland in South Vietnam.

Guerrilla units had attacked US military headquarters right in enemy territory. One single attack already conveyed the entire strategy. Attacks in the hinterland of imperialism by small armed guerrilla units. In international terms the hinterland was here, in the metropoles.

Years earlier, the chairman of North Vietnam’s communist party, Le Duan, in a
global-strategic speech, had spoken of the vision of armed struggles in the
capitalist centers. Now we were on our way.

What a certainty we had.
And what a smile on our faces.

We mourn for Helmut Pohl

Helmut Pohl
14 Sept 1943 – 12 Aug 2014

Long live the new internationalist struggle and the next generation urban guerrilla. Let 1000 flowers bloom. 1000 armed urban guerrilla groups. Each combative memory and dignified life burns as a star in the night sky. Never forget, never forgive… Respect. (more…)

Christa Eckes – Honour Her Memory! (Germany)

Saturday, June 23rd, 2012

From Sketchy Thoughts:

The first time Christa Eckes made the news was back in 1970, when as a teenager growing up in the West German city of Hamburg she was expelled from high school for starting a political action group. The “Basisgruppe LS-Schülerinnen” (LS Students Grassroots Group) was said to have distributed leaflets, organized resistance to the school board, the school administration and the parents’ advisory board, organized a questionnaire about sexual problems without informing the school administration and also to have disrupted a Christmas party.

Her mother hired Kurt Groenewold, a renowned left-wing lawyer, to oblige the school to readmit her daughter – an effort which proved successful. The decision to hire Groenewold was perhaps a fateful one; within a few years he would be known throughout West Germany as one of the attorneys for prisoners from the Red Army Faction, an anti-imperialist guerilla organization. By this time Eckes would be working as his legal assistant, and as such would be part of the defense team for Margrit Schiller, a prisoner from the RAF held in Hamburg. (more…)

Solidarity with Sonja and Christian of the Revolutionary Cells (Germany)

Tuesday, January 3rd, 2012

Solidarity with Sonja and Christian!
After 33 years in French exile, Sonja Suder, 79, and Christian Gauger, 70, were extradited to Germany on September 14, 2011. Christian was transported across the border in an ambulance! Sonja was jailed in Frankfurt-Preungesheim; Christian in a prison hospital. Christian, who suffered cardiac arrest in October of 1997 and has since been under constant medical and personal care, wasn’t released from detention until one month after his extradition; he now is forced to report to the cops twice per week. Sonja, who continues to be detained in Preungesheim, is likely the oldest woman in Europe awaiting trial in jail. Prosecutors brought charges in November and are planning to bring the cases to trial in 2012.

A Long Tradition of Resistance
As part of the political left, the Revolutionaere Zellen (Revolutionary Cells, RZ) started tackling the revolutionary perspective in the BRD in 1973, striving to identify novel formats of militancy and starting points for resistance. It formed a third urban guerilla group, next to RAF and Bewegung 2. Juni (2nd June Movement); however, RZ opted against a vanguard position, choosing to act from within the legal left movement instead. In the mid-1970s, RZ spawned a feminist organization, Rote Zora. RZ and Rote Zora ceased action in the early 1990s. (more…)
