It is about time!

#Hamburg, #Germany: Back on the park bench

Together with one other person they were arrested on the night of July 8, 2019 while sitting on a park bench.

#CopWatch #Hamburg: But who protects us from you?

Hamburg. Germany. March 26, 2020. In the last few days we have received several reports from Hamburg and other cities that point out that the new rules on contact restriction and the associated increased police presence in public places, are a doorway for arbitrary and disproportionate police action, and discriminatory police checks.
