Welcome to Hell demo; what are the cops up to?


Today the anti-capitalistic Welcome to Hell demo will march in Hamburg. If the cops let them… In a press release, the lawyers emergency service said that usually police authorities in Hamburg give organisers of registered demonstrations where there is only a fractional amount of indications that the demo could lead to riots, a pile of terms. But not todays Welcome to Hell demo; police authorities did not issue one term and even allowed (on paper) to let the demo march very close to the Messe (fair), where the G20 summit will be held on Friday and Saturday. The lawyers emergency service fear that police authorities will not let the Welcome to Hell demo march at all. After months of police propaganda about the “violent activists” and the way violent cops attacked peaceful protesters in the camps and on the streets of Hamburg its more than strange that the Welcome to Hell demo has no terms at all. Police authorities in Hamburg have experience with stopping demos. At December 21, 2013 the Rote Flora demomatched only 40 meters after it was stopped and attacked by riot cops.

Know Your Enemy, #NoG20 Edition – Protest Policing in Germany


The G20 summit in Hamburg, Germany is approaching fast. Tens of thousands of activists are mobilising to protest the event, including many who will come to Germany from abroad. It’s safe to say that all of our actions, no matter which approach we choose to protest or disrupt the summit, will have to deal with police presence at some point.
