Mayor Olaf Scholz says authorities can but not must allow a protest camp
After last nights confusing decision by the federal constitutional court on the ban on protest camps during the G20 protests, the cops issued a press release saying they won’t allow a protest camp at Stadtpark. In daily newspaper MoPo Hamburgs mayor Olaf Scholz went even further saying that we “won’t allow camps where violence is being prepared.” Last night Scholz already said local authorities can but must not allow protest camps. This afternoon a “cooperation meeting” with Hamburg police ended after 5 minutes. Activists who attended at the meeting said that the police was not willing to allow the necessary infrastructure for a protest camp anywhere in Hamburg. At 07:00pm tonight there will be an assembly in the Rote Flora about the camps. “Flora Bleibt” tweeted the NoG20 protests now officially escalated before they started (one of the tweets below). Many tweets with calls to start building camps anyway are going round today.
House searches: German police treat NoG20 interview as crime
Image: cops during house search this morning
At 07:30am today cops did 3 house searches in Hamburg. The spaces of “Roten Aufbau” and 2 more persons were searched. Police justifies the searches with § 140 2. StGB “rewarding and acceptance of crimes”. Its all because of an interview in German daily Taz in December 2016. Taz journalist Katharina Schipkowski tweeted (below) that she received a subpoena to appear as a witness. Tonight there will be a NoG20 demo against repression. Start 09:00pm, Spielbudenplatz/Reeperbahn Hamburg
