In the district of Potsdam an attack took place which resulted in the BMW of the SPD MEP Dagmar Roth-Behrendt, (who was until early 2012, Vice President of the European Parliament), being set on fire. The car was parked in front of the property on which resides the Social Democrat since 2007. Her husband is Horst Reichenbach, the financial expert who is the director of “Task Force Greece” of the European Commission. Reichenbach’s crisis management team oversees the implementation of the austerity measures agreed by the Greek state and the European Commission, International Monetary Fund and the European Central Bank.
In addition to the BMW being set on fire, a can of red paint was thrown at the house. The autonomous group “The Friends of Loukanikos”* took responsibility.
*Loukanikos is one of several so-called “Riot Dogs”. This is a dog that is seen at protests and violent riots in Greece. He is a symbol of the struggle against austerity measures dictated by the International Monetary Fund and the European Central Bank.
