Berlin: Curfew?! BREAK IT! Call for May 01 & 08

What follows is a call from Berlin against the curfew. We think it is important to document calls like this, as we see curfew enforcement and resistance against it as a landslide with potentially historic dimensions. This call was originally published by Kontrapolis (in German).

Before the demo dispersed at Otto-Böhne-Platz, however, the adjacent Marien41 was covered with paint.

In practice, a lot of this stuff already happens, but formalizing what is usually an abuse of power is a huge blow.
