One of today’s NoG20 raids in Göttingen is interesting. The cops raided one apartment on the basis of images. A court in Hamburg stated that cops identified the “suspect” on these images. In the search warrant was written that the “suspect” is accused of aggravated assault on July 7, 2017 in Hamburg. In the warrant is also written that the assault was so heavy that cops had to fire warn shots with live ammo. But… a lawyer told local daily “Göttinger Tagesblatt” today that he can proof that his client was in Japan on July 7, 2017. Japan is pretty far away from Hamburg…
Yesterday cops raided at least 13 properties in Frankfurt / M, Offenbach, Rossbach, Cologne, Hamburg, Oldenburg and Dudenbüttel in connection with the G20 summit in Hamburg. Six people were arrested.
Four of the six people were arrested for “membership in a criminal organization” because of their alleged involvement in the riots on the morning of 7 July 2017 during the demo on the Elbchaussee. They are between 17 and 24 years old and come from Frankfurt / M and Offenbach.
In addition, there were raids on nine other people, which are accused of arson, serious breach of peace, resistance against law enforcement officers and criminal assault.
A woman in Cologne was arrested for looting and another man was arrested without any reference to the G20 during the raids.
At 10:30pm about 60 people spontaniously marched to the Holstenglacis prison in Hamburg, where the people that were arrested yesterday morning were imprisoned. The solidarity protesters made a lot of noise with firecrackers, pots and pans and chanted slogans. About 100 people met in Frankfurt am Main yesterday to discuss a collective reaction to the raids (image above).
These will not have been the last raids and arrest warrants related to the G20. The cops try to intimidate people with their massive actions against summit opponents, especially in order to prevent such riots in the future. Solidarity with those who are subject to state repression is important now. Help people to repair their doors, clean up their rooms, listen to them, donate a laptop, collect money for the prisoners, write to them, etc.
