BURNING HEARTS CANNOT BE LOCKED AWAY
FREEDOM FOR THE THREE ON THE PARK BENCH!
On the night of 8 July 2019, three of our comrades were arrested on a park bench. On the same night there were several house searches in various districts of Hamburg, during which some of the people were forced out of their beds with weapons. The suspicion, according to the Attorney General’s Office, was the preparation of an arson attack. On 9 July, the three were brought before the magistrate. Two of them were remitted from custody and the third had her arrest warrant suspended, with conditions – she has to report once a week and is not allowed to leave the country – and she has been on the outside ever since. A evaluation trial for the pre-trial detention was requested by the defence and then withdrawn two weeks later. A new date is not foreseeable at the moment.
Currently DNA was taken from the two prisoners for comparison. The person outside did not have to give any DNA, since the alleged traces found are only male DNA. The two in custody are doing well, considering the circumstances. Since the LKA (State criminal police office) officials are present at every visit, the visits that take place twice a month for one hour depend on the LKA calendars. Telephone calls (1 hour per month) and letters are also monitored, listened to and read by the LKA,
the prison and the General Prosecutor’s Office. Accordingly, there is never a moment of private communication between the two and their friends or family. It is clear to them what this place should do to them – but they keep their heads up and share solidarity and contact with fellow prisoners. (more…)

We learned with rage that our comrades of Hamburg known as “the park bench three”, are in prison on remand. The fact that two of them are charged with “harmful inclinations” doesn’t surprise us. Always, those who rebel against the prevailing order are condemned as “parasites”.
Our comrades are clearly accused of attempted arson as they were arrested in possession of incendiaries in this Hamburg park. It should be clear to everyone that this is yet another repressive blow against the anti-G20 rebels and their world, also concerning the arrest on the day of the anniversary of the riots. (more…)
