Call for solidary process support on 18.12. in Jülich (attempt 2)

After the district court Jülich the date on Nov.27th canceled quite spontaneously, it starts on Dec. 18th at 11:15 am a second attempt. The allegations continue to be „Widerstand gegen Vollstreckungsbeamte in besonders schwerem Fall“ (§113 Abs. 2 StGB) (resistance against enforcement officers in particularly severe cases), „Nötigung“ (§240 StGB) (coercion) and for one of the two defendants additionally „Sachbeschädigung“ (damage, §303 StGB). Specifically, it is about a Hambach railway blockade (action statement and press review).

From Düren we will arrive in common by train, which leaves from there only every hour. A group ticket is cheaper for everyone. Meeting point for this is at 09:30 am on track 23 of the Düren central station. If someone wants to arrange a joint arrival from other cities, please announce it in the comments below.

Reservation of seats in the courtroom is best done directly at the district court Jülich:
Tel: +49 2461 681-0
Fax: +49 2461 681-164

Six witnesses, five of them cops, are to be questioned. Five more will follow on a follow-up date. A defendant activist made the following statement on the trial:

The district court Jülich apparently got too scared of us after our last trial call and postponed the date. At the new date we count on several police centenaries to provide for orderly behaviour and violent enforcement of authority of court. But that does not change the way I handle repression. I will not be deterred from defending myself self-determined and offensive. And I really hope that a few people feel like joining, also from the audience bank. By the way, I stick with my announcements at the first call for solidary trial support.
Let’s show the repressive apparatus that we are not intimidated, no matter how many cops they open! Maybe they can frighten us in the short term and even force us to behave (even though we do not necessarily have to make that easy for them), but they will never get us to the point where we respect them.
Oh, and last but not least, a thought that might make the whole repressive apparatus a little less frightening: repression can be strong, but the most painful thing in our lives is still things they can not control. In the end, lovesickness hurts more than any state repression.
