Wuppertal police confirm “death in police custody” [Germany]

Wuppertal. Germany. First brief and partly contradictory information about a death person in police custody at a Wuppertal police station. According to Athens Indymedia, the person died on November 2. Athens Indymedia also states that it was 24-year-old Giórgou Zantióti (Γιώργου Ζαντιώτη). The Wuppertal police confirmed to Perspektive Online a “fatality in police custody” but did not want to further comment on the matter for the time being. Also not about the identity of the person who died.

Update: Addition Enough 14: Due to lack of knowledge of the Greek language on our part, it was difficult to translate the name of the person killed correctly. In Greek, the name is spelled Γιώργου Ζαντιώτη. In the first article we translated it as Giórgou Zantióti. However, according to some Greek comrades it is Giorgos Zantiótis. We apologize for the confusion.

Police violence during demo against new state assembly law in Düsseldorf: Business as usual [Germany]

On Saturday german cops once again showed their ugly face. Riot cops, flood lights, a helicopter in the air. In a park in Hamburg. For months now cops are attacking youths in parks and neighbourhoods, major parts of the left react with a deafening silence. In this scenario nobody should be surprised that the cops went after people after one of the most innocent demos that I ever went to: the Osterhoplz Bleibt demo in Wuppertal on June 12. The state doesn’t need actions in self-defense to protect a demo as justification for repression. The fact that the forest occupation in Osterholz and other actions for the forest are putting more and more pressure on municipal and state authorities is reason enough for the state to react with repression. On Saturday the cops didn’t only went after youths in Hamburg. In Düsseldorf the cops attacked a demonstration against the new state (anti) assembly law. The outrage was huge after the police attacks in Düsseldorf, that was perhaps the real surprise for me. Police violence is nothing unusual, the repressive state forces are structurally violent. Ask the surplus proletarian youths in your city. They know violent police practices like racial profiling, deportations and general harassment too well. People get beaten up by cops regurlarly. Düsseldorf was not an exception, it was business as usual.
