Wuppertal, German territory: Since the autonomous bloc passed the DGB (Association of German Trade Unions) demo on the leftside in 1986, the unregistered autonomous mayday demonstration takes place in Wuppertal. In the 33 years of its existence, this demonstration was repeatedly harassed to varying degrees by the police.

The plan was successful last year with a large contingent and the use of brutal force and disregarded fundamental rights.

Freiburg (German territory): Since the early morning hours the police have been clearing the two occupations at Mozartstraße 3 and Klarastraße 17. The fact that the owners, with the support of the police, are now putting an end to this is an expression of Freiburg’s misguided housing policy: the city supports profit-oriented companies in their activities, while the active design of open and free spaces and the use of empty buildings are criminalised.Continue reading German territory: #Mozart 3 & #Klara17 squats in #Freiburg evicted
