Berlin, Deutschland: Soli-Demo – “Schulter an Schulter in Solidarität mit den politischen Gefangenen”

PDF: Flyer – Berlin
Kundgebung am Sonntag, den 22. März 2020
um 15 Uhr auf dem Hermannplatz
Anlässlich des 18.März als „Tag der Pariser Commune“ und „Tag der politischen Gefangenen“ rufen wir zu Solidarität mit den politischen und revolutionären Gefangenen weltweit auf.
Viele von ihnen sind seit Jahrzehnten in Haft. Sie befinden sich in Knästen, weil sie gegen Ausbeutung, Unterdrückung, Besatzung und imperialistische Kriege einen organisierten Kampf führen. Aktivist*innen sind politischen Verfahren ausgesetzt und werden teilweise zu langjährigen Haftstrafen verurteilt, ins Exil oder zur Flucht getrieben, wo sie wiederum verfolgt, angeklagt und eingesperrt werden. Menschen, die in Europa und der BRD ankommen, werden mittels Anti-Terror-Gesetzen, in Deutschland beispielsweise nach §129b StGB, jahrelang eingesperrt. So befinden sich in der BRD dutzende Revolutionär*innen aus der Türkei und Kurdistan in Haft.

In the night from Saturday to Sunday (01.-02.02) we threw stones at a patrol car on the Bethaniendamm. Because the driver braked out of initial overconfidence, we were able to destroy the front and side windows.
This is to be understood as the direct answer to the attacks on our demos this weekend. Whether provocative and beating at the unlock demo on Friday or the Sponti in Kreuzberg on Saturday.
Even if you are caught up in common police state fantasies at your congress, you can be sure of one thing; that we always create moments where the balance of power is in our favour and know how to use it.
You can kill us but the idea of freedom will never die.
REVENGE FOR MARIA!
According to media reports, the patrol car was badly damaged and had to be taken to a garage, the two cops also resigned from duty and one was taken to hospital. The night before, riot police got into clashes with stone throwers in Rigaer Street, damaging several of their vehicles and injuring an officer. More about the murder of Maria.

On Friday 24.01 around 4.00 a.m, the cops of the police station 51 (Wedekindwache), raided the flat of Maria P. on Grünberger Straße 46, after her flatmate’s phone call, and shot her dead. Police reports and its careful reproduction through mass media profile Maria as a mentally ill person attacking the cops with a knife. At the same time the state, police and the mass media are targeting persons with mental health issues, suggesting that this ‘diagnosis’ is enough for their potential execution.
The day after the murder, people gathered in solidarity and started a spontaneous demo in Maria’s neighbourhood. This demo was attacked by the cops, completing in this way the image of zero tolerance while actively defending the provocative statements of the police union (GdP) and the public prosecutor’s office which said that they are currently assuming that their colleagues have behaved correctly.
Berlin is a city based on the alternative tourism industry and a facade of diversity tolerance, promoting a progressive city image, which offers as products, ideas such as antiracism, antisexism and veganism/vegetarianism without hesitating to rely on the ‘friendly’ police forces (da für dich) to ensure citizen’s peace and security when needed.

UN MAR DE POSIBILIDADES EN EL DESIERTO DE HORMIGÓN
Esta publicación es una recopilación de textos que surge de los debates y el trabajo que comenzamos a raíz de las jornadas «Un mar de posibilidades en el desierto de hormigón, Territorio, ciudad e insurrección» que sucedieron en Madrid durante junio de 2019 en La Emboscada y en Local Anarquista Motín. Es el fruto de un trabajo conjunto de algunas compañeras de Berlín y Madrid, que no termina con la publicación de estas páginas y que pretende extender el debate que hemos compartido. ¿Qué significa tomar territorio frente al Estado y el Capitalismo? ¿Cómo podemos tomarlo a través de nuestras luchas? ¿Cómo funciona la dominación en los territorios que habitamos? ¿Supone nuestra manera de habitar el territorio un conflicto con el sistema?
Madrid y Berlín
-Territorio, ciudad e insurrección. Proyectualidad y propuestas de lucha.
-Conclusiones de las jornadas (Madrid)
-Conclusiones de las jornadas (Rigaer 94)

On the 6th of January, we chose to open a banner amidst the crossroad of Liebig and Rigaer Strasse and attack a police car in order to show our solidarity with the threatened house projects in Berlin and the evicted squats in Athens.
The banner says: “Solidarity with Squats in Greece – Revenge 4 Koukaki Eviction”.
When it was installed across the street, a patrol car arrived and was attacked with stones by the backup team and forced to flee.
There are some similar conditions for the anarchist movement in Berlin and Athens, for example the aim of the government to eliminate us and take our neighborhoods and occupied spaces. Despite the differences between the movement in Germany and Greece, the enemy is the same. The smell of garbage in uniforms is the same, the barriers of the prison is the same. Ultimately, the goal of these two states are the same, to eliminate the resistance of the fighting anarchist movements.
Sunday, December 15th, 2019
In the morning hours of 13th of December we set fire to five company cars and one radio antenna on the Deutsche Telekom premises at Hannemannstraße in Berlin-Britz as well as to two cars in front of the Nissan car dealership at Gärtnerstraße in Berlin-Alt-Hohenschönhausen.
Our attacks are aimed at two companies that are globally involved in securing the rule of power and enriching themselves by it, including in Greece, where the current government is threatening to evict all occupied houses and social centers and where those who do not allow themselves to be pushed into the neoliberal norm are subject to massive attacks by the state:
→ Deutsche Telekom, as the biggest European company for Telecommunications, which, profiting from the crisis, bought parts of the former state company Hellenic Telecommunications Organization S.A. (Greek: OTE A.E.) and is now a 45% shareholder. With its subsidiary T-Systems, the Deutsche Telekom is worldwide leading in service for security authorities, industry and the energy sector.
→ Nissan, as a company, which supplies the Greek repression authorities. In June 2019 four Nissan Qashqai Diesel 4×4 and two Nissan Navara for the Criminal Investigation Unit (Δ.Ε.Ε. Διεύθυνση Εγκληματολογικών Ερευνών – forensic division) as well as one Nissan NV400 for the anti-riotcops (M.A.T. – Μονάδες Αποκατάστασης Τάξης – Monades Apokatastasis Taxis) were ceremonially granted to the cops in front of their academy in Amygdaleza, in the north of Athens.
We chose this moment because it was in December 2008, when the assassination of Alexis by the cop Korkoneas in Exarchia, Athens, triggered a social revolt that was accompanied by a multitude of international attacks on the symbols of state and capital and their murderous functionaries.
11 years later, living conditions have not improved either here or there. Rather, the social war is intensifying worldwide. The gap between rich and poor continues to widen. The triumphant march of neoliberalism produces a mass of excluded people who are denied the possibility of social participation. Expelled and parked on the margins of the metropolis or in slums, they are declared enemies, who should be monitored and oppressed. Walls and fences, private security services, intelligent cameras and highly equipped police units are the clearest expression of an increasingly militarized territory in which, under the disguise of security, war is being waged against the poor.
New technologies and the associated digital access to our lives enable new and more subtle techniques of governance. The thousands and thousands of data that are produced every day are intended to make any action calculable and controllable. With Predictive Policing, the foresighted cop, a tool was created that sorts people according to stereotypes and thus creates the criminals of the future. Such technologies are embedded in the restructuring of cities into Smart Cities, the implementation of which companies such as Deutsche Telekom are constantly working on with 5G infrastructure projects or smart traffic systems, lanterns, waste management and much more. However, this is by no means to enable a better life for all, but to enable the totalitarian idea of comprehensive control of the city and its population through practical solutions.
The technological attack is so successful because humans are actually collective beings. Part of the neo-liberal agenda was and is the destruction of this very collectivity in order to reassemble it in line with the market through digital domination. Driven by the fear of being excluded, even outlawed, and by the supposed joys that Virtual Reality has to offer us, we ourselves weave on the net that encloses us. The state of isolation in the cities or the disregard of rural communities leads many into the arms of the constructed national community and therefore parties like the AfD get a influx of followers. Fighting the rise of fascism by integrating ideas of solidarity and collectivity into social struggles, is therefore certainly a task for the coming time.
As it is happening in other countries at the moment, the abolished leftist government in Greece has prepared the ground for the new rise of a right-wing conservative regime. The past phase of Syriza’s government should have clearly demonstrated to those in doubt that participation in power must fulfill the conditions of capitalist constraints and that no emancipatory project can stand on democratic parliamentary feet. To name these contradictions, to reject any domination by others, not to compromise and not to recognize the authority of a hostile system are part of the anarchist idea.
We feel connected with the rebels worldwide, who are currently in many different places in the world, especially where the state-social partnership is not developed to the smallest detail, those who let the sparks of resistance grow into a widespread fire of social uprising. While in Athens self-organized and revolutionary structures are being defended and state and capital being attacked, we are fighting the same struggle here, in which we aim at the profiteers of capitalist domination. We do this with the consciousness that the infrastructure and the flow of goods are elementary components of it. We send our flaming greetings especially to those who fight against the regime of Nea Demokratia in Greece as well as worldwide to all those people who revolt against authority, are in prison for it or who have to flee.

· ANTICOLONIAL MARCH 2019 ·
Colonialism has never ended. The neocolonial-capitalist system still wants to silence and to marginalize us. With fascism rising everywhere, time has come to unite and stand together!
The 12th of October marks the „discovery“ of America by the Europeans in 1492. It’s the founding stone of a big lie that lives on until today in forms of white supremacy, eurocentrism and ignorance. October 12th marks the beginning of the colonial genocides, of the destruction and robbery of precolonial societies, culture and knowledge, of forced christianization, the exploitation of the indigenous peoples, their land and resources, the transatlantic slave trade and the globalization of the a system that is wrecking life on our planet.
Until today October 12th is celebrated as „Columbus Day“ and „dia de la raza“ (Spanish: „race day“) by colonial states. The „heroic achievements“ of Columbus are still taught in German schools, while our forests are burning for the profit of multinational corporations and neocolonial regimes. German weapons are exported to war zones to kill people, while people fleeing these wars are left to drown to not enter Europe. This hypocrisy can no longer be tolerated. (more…)

This morning [20/7], the cops of the LKA 5.21 unit under the command of Kranich raided Liebig34. Unusual was the saturday, unusual the mix of units from different departments. New were a few civil cop faces, not new: the repression.
The reason for this raid was probably stones thrown from the house during the last few weeks. After the cops collected stones from the Dorfplatz around 2:30 this morning, they obtained a court order and search warrant to search part of our house and returned around 6:30 a.m.. They came through the backyard and the front door, sawed the doors and barris, picked them up and thus forcibly gained access to our project. A lawyer was quickly on the scene and was able to observe and testify. Altogether the cops were about three hours in the house, having searched officially and intensively three connected rooms and the attic. They also snooped around in unlocked private rooms, tore posters from the walls, knocked over furniture, cut internet cables and destroyed windows. (more…)

Received Saturday 20 July
This morning 6:30, the police broke into Liebig34 to search evidence and DNA in one room. The reason is an attack with stones against repression forces on Friday night. Soon after many riot police vans and a helicopter arrived, a barricade was burning in Rigaer Street. After some hours police left, no one was arrested. There is a call for resistance tonight and solidarity actions. More info as it comes.
