Don’t touch Liebig 34!
Eviction date on 09 October 2020
Today, on September 15, we received mail from the bailiff T. Knop.
They threatened to evict Liebig34 on Friday, October 9 at 7 am!
We will not let that happen!
How is it possible that an attempt to evict is being planned even though it is publicly known that a different association than the defendant is present in the rooms?
How is it possible that in times when a second wave of Corona and #StayHome is expected, a home is to be evicted by so many people?
How is it possible that especially now, in times of fascist marches and a shift to the right, a feminist, leftist and queer house project is being attacked so massively?
We are angry but determined.
We will not give up the Liebig 34 without further ado.
Support us in our struggle.
Come to the general assemblies, annoy politicians and homeowners.
Be creative! Let’s make the eviction attempt a disaster!
MORE INFOS WILL COME – WE’LL KEEP YOU UPDATED!

International Call for Action and Discussion Days in Berlin 30.10.-01.11.2020
International Demo in Berlin 31.10.2020
UNITED WE FIGHT!
Connect Urban Struggles – Defend Autonomous Spaces
Over the last years we experience a global resurgence of reactionary politics. State and capital, in a constant process of intensifying exploitation and expanding repression, used the global capitalist crisis, which started a decade ago, as a chance to further restructure relations of power in their advantage. Their political answer is materialized in a shift to the right, with a political alliance of neoliberal economic policies coupled with strong nationalistic narratives and repressive policies against resistance and progressive movements. The new face of authoritarianism has unleashed an all out attack against individuals it considers unnecessary or those that choose to resist and collectivize against the ruin of their lives. In our current period, states the world over used measures against Covid-19 to extend repression, policing and surveillance against societies. At the same time, the failings of neoliberal healthcare systems have led to masses of deaths and increasing inequality due to access to healthcare.
To all of this, people in different areas of the world answer with massive resistance on the streets. Movements with different perspectives have revolted, for example in Argentina, Bolivia, Chile, or more recently in France and the USA. The common thread of all these movements is their distance from institutionalized and systemic politics and the choice of self-organization and horizontalism in the fight against authority. (more…)

“Bread, Salt, Land and Freedom” can be heard in the streets of all Belarus at present. Everywhere people and our friends have been streaming onto the streets since August 9th. Unusual for a country where activists disappear, are tortured or draconian prison sentences are supposed to suppress any thought of another world. But the population is looking for alternatives and our companions are right in the middle of it:
“We should not forget that anarchists are against not only this presidential election, but against any president in general. The Belarusian people have long known that power corrupts everyone. Lukashenko may be replaced by an opposition politician, who will keep power in the country and continue repression against his own population. We must rise up not to get a new president, but to live without presidents. Decentralization of power should be a key factor in the transition from dictatorship to a free society.“
While the madman from Belarus, self-proclaimed president, congratulates his murderous cop units and symbolically walks through Minsk with a Kalashnikov, the strikes and attacks on these units continue. The fear must be deep-seated of losing power, so he had the Internet turned off, sent the military to fight the demos and his whole family ran through the streets with weapons.
In Berlin, too, we follow the events and were inspired by the attack on the Belarusian embassy in Paris.
We send our greetings and strength to our anarchist friends and all the other rebels in the streets, following the call for international solidarity:
“Support from the outside inspires not only the hearts of anarchists, but also the hearts of everyone on the street.“
For this reason we threw stones and paint bottles at the Belarusian embassy near Treptower Park during the night of August 27. We crossed their disgusting emblem at the gate with an A in a circle.
For a upheaval of the circumstances – until anarchy!
Fear turned into rage, rage into victory!
To all our comrades in revolt, courage, hold on!

Am 31. August 2020 gab es in Hamburg und anderen Orten 28 Hausdurchsuchungen gegen linke Aktivist*innen. Den 22 Beschuldigten wird vorgeworfen, Mitglieder der linken Gruppe Roter Aufbau Hamburg zu sein und eine kriminelle Vereinigung nach Paragraf 129 gebildet zu haben. Diese Razzien stellen einen der größten Angriffe der letzten Jahre auf organisierte linke Strukturen dar. Die Kriminalisierung einer ganzen Gruppe, ist eine neue Qualität der Repression gegen die bundesdeutsche Linke. Unter dem Motto „Unsere Solidarität gegen ihre Repression“ findet am Samstag, dem 5. September um 16 Uhr eine Kundgebung auf dem Heinrichplatz statt.
Bitte teilen und hinkommen!
Hier der Aufruf:
Unsere Solidarität gegen ihre Repression
Am 31. August 2020 gab es in Hamburg und anderen Orten 28 Hausdurchsuchungen gegen linke Aktivist*innen. Auch der linke Stadtteilladen „Lüttje Lüüd“ in Hamburg war betroffen. Den 22 Beschuldigten wird vorgeworfen, Mitglieder der linken Gruppe Roter Aufbau Hamburg zu sein und eine kriminelle Vereinigung nach Paragraf 129 gebildet zu haben. Gegen weitere unbekannte Personen wird noch ermittelt. Diese Razzien stellen einen der größten Angriffe der letzten Jahre auf organisierte linke Strukturen dar. Die Kriminalisierung einer ganzen Gruppe, ist eine neue Qualität der Repression gegen die bundesdeutsche Linke.
Das Ermittlungsverfahren der Generalstaatsanwaltschaft Hamburg läuft bereits seit 2019. Im richterlichen Beschluss ist sogar die Rede von der Bildung einer terroristischen Vereinigung, also einem Paragraf-129a-Verfahren. Vorgeworfen werden den Betroffenen Straftaten wie Landfriedensbruch und Sachbeschädigung, sowie die Aufforderung zu Straftaten. Mit dem Vorwand einer 129a-Ermittlung lässt sich nahezu jede Überwachungs- und Bespitzelungsmaßnahme begründen. Der Paragraph ist ein Werkzeug für die Repressionsorgane, um linke Strukturen auszuspionieren und Aktivist*innen zu kriminalisieren. (more…)
Letter by Thomas Meyer-Falk for the International Week of Solidarity with Anarchist Prisoners (Germany)
Monday, August 24th, 2020
Prisons are places of darkness, of gloom, real life cannot flourish there. Because what is “real life”? It is one in freedom, integrated in friendly relationships, experiencing oneself as an individual. Because we live ourselves and are not lived.
It is not without reason that prison criticism is therefore always also a fundamental critique of society and the system, because within the prison walls the same mechanisms prevail as outside the gates, only in a much more severe form.
ABC’s Solidarity week for anarchist prisoners takes place in a time marked by the Corona pandemic. The pandemic in particular once again clearly reveals the injustices.
Members of marginalized social groups have a disproportionately higher risk of infection, illness and death (which also applies outside pandemic times, but is only currently particularly evident). And those who are in prison are even more vulnerable, because the general conditions, as the Prisoners’ Union (GG/BO) also tirelessly points out, are often pretty lousy. (more…)

ACTIONWEEK FOR LIEBIG34 – 07.09 – 13.09.20
Liebig 34 is being threatend by eviction. When state, cops and the owner want to evict, they will only have a desaster on their hands. As an anarcha-queer-feminist selforganized house-project without cis-men, directly at the square „Dorfplatz“ in Friedrichshain, Liebig 34 is a place where resistance actions and collective moments are decided and organized. A place where self-organization becomes a dangerous word, where a project is becoming a starting point of struggles and not just a space of self-reference and alternative entertainment. The project itself has taken part in the planning of many of demonstrations, published numerous calls and texts and carried out various radical actions. But it is also a symbol of radicalization and empowerment for the antagonistic scene in Berlin and in Germany, as it shows how to fight various forms of resistance.
Liebig34 consists of a collective which is working with a focus to overcome more and more internalized structures of capitalism and patriarchy. In a world where patriarchy makes up one of the main pillars of the capitalist system, militant feminist groups and collectives, which make clear that the resistance and the fighting back is not a cis-men privilege, are more than necessary. In a patriarchal world, in which patriarchy and capitalism are interwoven, it is more than necessary to actually fight patriarchy and not have it be a sidenote in a text. Let us not be divided by oppression and let’s fight together in this for a liberated society.
Join the fight and defend Liebig34!

Autonomous Groups for Liebig34
Berlin : For the situation of the occupied houses in the north Friedrichshain neighborhood (Germany)
Wednesday, August 5th, 2020
Some information about the new attempt to evict Rigaer94 has already been spread in the last days, here is a summary also with regard to the threatened Liebig34.
Since the last major attack on Rigaer94 in Summer 2016, the coalition of the alleged owner of the house and Berlin Police has lost all legal proceedings. At the same time the „owner“ of Liebig34 was successful in court with his action for eviction. The distance between the two squats is 100 meters and in this area the cops and the image of the city of Berlin suffer a lot of damage. Some call this a lawless area and a danger zone, but here there is a neighborhood based on solidarity and resistance structures. The current legal situation of Rigaer94 is as follows : on 4 floors in the back house a collective lives together, which also runs the bar and meeting point Kadterschmiede. On the ground floor the autonomous youth club Keimzelle squats their rooms. In the front building friends and other parts of the collective live in the flats. Both in the front and in the back we have valid rental contracts for some rooms, some of the rooms, including Kadterschmiede, are occupied. The aim of “Lafone Investment Ltd”, the Police and the Berlin government is to evict us completely from this house, because they hope that this will put an end to the solidarious neighborhood and its constant attacks against them. In addition, the clearing of Liebig34 seems very difficult to them as long as we still exist.
The cops, deputies and the press are staging a campaign that targets individual people in the house and marks the massive doors and the barricades as a problem. We do not know yet if the attack of the cops against our house on the morning of the 9th of July was ordered by the Minister of the Interior or if parts of the police have become independent. In fact they committed the same mistake as in 2016, when they also carried out an operation that was judged illegal by the court. On 9th of July the cops, partly together with an alleged administrator of the owner and a lawyer, searched apartments in the front building, evacuated one apartment and tried to clear another. The cops cited forgery of documents and the injury of an officer as the reasons for the raid. They came with their own 200 forces, a dozen private mercenaries from a security company and construction workers, it was reported that some of them had Combat18 tattoos. They destroyed all doors in the entrance area, some apartment doors and walls and devastated everything they could reach. In the evening they left after our resistance in the house and from the people who showed solidarity outside in the street. (more…)

JOIN US IN THE HAMBACHER FOREST FOR A WEEKEND OF DISCUSSION, WORKSHOPS AND REVOLT FOR ANIMAL LIBERATION
24-27 SEPTEMBER 2020
After months of dystopian weirdness and unprecedented state-repression imposed on the basis of corona, borders are opening up and rage is exploding around the world. But with potentially no radical anti-speciesist gatherings in Europe this summer to contribute to the clash, we felt the need to set a rallying point!
The Hambacher Forest is an ongoing focal point for anti-capitalism and radical ecology on the continent – let’s find each other there and take the opportunity to share skills and perspectives on how to confront human supremacy in the current context. In continuation with the anarchist animal liberation gatherings which took place in Marseille (2016), Bristol (2017), Bilbao (2018) and Rome (2019), we aim to connect those who incorporate the fight alongside other animals and their habitats into a broader struggle against all hierarchies – a struggle for total liberation.
A list of workshops – both hands-on and more theoretical – is soon to be announced. We also want to invite you to propose your own, whether over the coming weeks or more spontaneously once the event begins. Other contributions in the form of literature, stalls and whatever else are also warmly invited.
Remember, this event is:
– FREE, including vegan food for the duration of the event
– SELF-ORGANISED, so if you see a job it’s yours!
– SQUATTED, taking place in an illegal land occupation
– ANTI-OPPRESSION, so fuck right off if you have racist/sexist/heterosexist/cissexist/speciesist or otherwise bigoted views + behaviour
– IN A FOREST, so be ready to camp and respect the ecosystem
More info about what to expect and how to get there will be released on the following website later on. You can also find translations of this callout there, soon to include German, French, Italian, Spanish, and more: www.forestantispedays.noblogs.org

Solidarity means attack – no eviction remains without response
Today (10/7/2020), as a first response to the raid and evictions in the front building of Rigaer94, we attacked a branch of the Berliner Sparkasse in Lichtenberg with stones and destroyed the windows.
The raid and eviction are the beginning of the planned elimination of various projects in the coming months. In addition to an attack on one of our spaces, yesterday’s raid concerned the extension of the siege in the northern district of Friedrichshshain and the attempt to prepare the framework for the eviction of Liebig34. This will not remain without consequences. With our action we call for
decentralized actions against their plans. We do not want to wait for Day X, the phase of evictions has already begun and we must give a strong, collective response on the streets.
In doing so, we are joining the call of the Koukaki Squats in Athens in order to enter into dialogue with the comrades there who are facing similar challenges. The evacuation of Dervenion56 in Exarchia was the occasion for this international call . (more…)

Today at 07:00 July 9th, 2020
in the morning, a hundred riot cops walked over the bicycle rack in the yard of Riga 93 to climb over the fence into our yard one by one. At the same time they occupied the roofs of our block. The cops, along with LKA 5 and 6, then gained access to apartments on the 3rd floor of the front building under the pretext of a search for forgery of documents and others. According to the press, they also searched an apartment on Karl-Marx-Allee.
Contrary to their usual procedure, they refrained from using a helicopter and made no attempt to penetrate the rear building so far. In the meantime, they led the worst traffic lawyer in town, Markus Bernau, around the front building, presumably with the intention of supporting him in legal actions against the apartments occupied there. Torsten Luschnat, who thinks he is our new property manager, also gained access to these apartments. The so-called owner company has already proved several times in court that they can’t really prove anything, not even their legality to take legal action against us. The previous court rulings have dismissed all claims. (more…)

Our friend Andreas is dying… (July 2, 2020)
… and everyone is watching. What has been happening to Andreas in jail in Naples for at least a year is a result that both the German and the Italian state are responsible for. In spite of his poor health, Andreas is denied adequate medical care despite promises to the contrary by the hospital management. He is brought to a hospital every hour for questionable or senseless examinations and then back to prison.
Andreas was diagnosed with cancer at least a year ago, it spread all over his body and he had unspeakable pain. He can hardly walk anymore, just eat more baby food, he loses blood and is often unconscious for days. His Italian lawyer is fighting at all levels, but transfer to house arrest has now been refused.
Andreas is doing very badly, suicide seems to be the only way out for him in the current situation.
Both the Italian and the German state know Andreas’ state of health. Nobody lifts a finger, fundamental human rights do not seem to apply to prisoners. What happens here is murder. And every suicide in jail is nothing else, because behind bars there are no free decisions.
We cannot stand by, although we are infinitely sad and angry and have no ideas what to do.
Confront the German and Italian authorities with their inactivity, call the Federal Foreign Office, Boschaft and the consulate.
Down with all prisons! Down with all states!

ADESSO CHE AVETE PAURA.
E’ sempre più chiaro ormai come il modello economico dominante, sacrifichi alla legge del profitto e della competizione esasperata qualsiasi espressione di libertà individuale, uguaglianza e solidarietà sociale.
Di fronte a tutto ciò, numerosi sono gli scenari di rivolta che esplodono e si ramificano in ogni parte del mondo.
Dal confederalismo democratico curdo, ai territori autonomi zapatisti, da Hong Kong al Chile.
In questi ultimi mesi, il modo in cui la pandemia da Covid è stata gestita ha ulteriormente amplificato e reso evidente la disuguaglianza tra chi il sistema lo subisce e chi pretende di controllarlo.
Questo ha reso più estrema la tensione sociale e il suo potenziale esplosivo.
La morte di George Floyd, di per sé un evento non eccezionale nel contesto della brutalità di un sistema che giornalmente uccide e devasta, vissuto nel momento del lock down globale a causa della pandemia, ha scatenato a livello internazionale un’esplosione di rabbia che si è manifestata in molteplici forme: dall’assedio dei distretti di polizia, ai saccheggi di quei beni a cui molt* non hanno più o non hanno mai avuto la possibilità di accedere, alle grandi manifestazioni di piazza.
