Leipzig. Germany. The occupations on May 1st in Ludwigstraße and in Großzschocher were mock occupations. Due to the Corona crisis, police repression and bans on larger solidarity demonstrations were to be expected. Therefore, the activists decided to choose this symbolic form of action to draw attention to the start of their campaign and to release corresponding forces and energies. One thing is clear: symbolic forms of action will not remain, the goal of the campaign is the actual creation of self-managed, non-commercial spaces through occupation.Continue reading #Leipzig, #Germany: Statement on the May 1st mock occupations

Leipzig. Connewitz. German territory. Anyone who lives in Leipzig and may have been at the cross on New Year’s Eve can actually only have their ears ringing (as long as they are unharmed) and their eyes burning from what happened in the media after New Year’s Eve. So distorted, so unnecessarily exaggerated is that what happened there, that the question arises why it actually happened. To make it clear in short: We welcome the actions of the people on the cross and do not want to play it down or belittle it; but it was, with all success, also not this phantastic “more than before”, which cops, politicians and the media have now turned it into. It was more than happened on the cross in other years and a little less than was possible on other occasions in Leipzig.
But why now this giant theatre? Is it really because comrades tried to murder a cop there? Because the attacked cops were hurt as never before? Because the attack went beyond every foreseeable measure? At least that’s what people should be made to believe and this is not aimed at any kind of criminal prosecution or the like, but rather at preventing the emergence of a left-wing radical movement and to chase its protagonists apart and divide them at an early stage.
Leipzig. German territory. What happened on New Year’s Eve at Connewitzer Kreuz can only be adequately understood in the context of recent months. The year 2019 was marked by increasing aggressiveness and numerous humiliations, bodily injuries, insults and violent assaults by the cops, not only in Connewitz but in the whole of Leipzig. After a violent assault on left-wing youths at the Connewitz police station in 2018 ¹, the year 2019 was marked by numerous attacks on demonstrations by the pigs, people were beaten up, threatened, injured. In Connewitz they even dared for a few weeks to harass the residents with martial foot patrols of small BFE troops, who also harassed and pressured residents massively. After some attacks against the cops in Connewitz ², the police leadership seemed to have understood that the introduction of these foot patrols in the Connewitz neighbourhood met with general rejection.Continue reading #Leipzig: Considerations concerning New Year’s Eve in #Connewitz
