RiseUp4Rojava – Call for global days of action to defend the Revolution

Call for Global Days of Action on 27 and 28 January 2019

On January 27th, exactly four years ago, the city of Kobane in northern Syria was freed from the hands of the gangs of the so-called Islamic State after months of fierce fighting by the courageous fighters of the YPJ and YPG. At that time, we poured onto the streets in our millions, day after day, week after week, to express our solidarity with the Kobane resistance and to compel the world to act. Nonstop, powerful actions outside the Middle East gave the comrades fighting in the city courage to continue and forced the international powers to act. more…

In memory of Oury Jalloh – Info and Solidarity Action

Oury Jalloh that was murder!
… one of many
… by police officers
… in Germany!

“Open your eyes! Stay awake! Stop destroying this world! ”
(Mouctar Bah from the initiative in memory of Oury Jalloh)

Stop police brutality, whether in the forest, in the pedestrian zone or in jail. We experience police brutality not only in Hambi. Daily it takes place in the cities and villages of Germany, for example by racial profiling. Their most brutal expressions are found in racially motivated illegal deprivation of liberty, torture and finally murders. Oury Jalloh is not the only one brutally murdered. The clarification of this truth could only be achieved through years of persistent and independent investigation of the initiative in memory of Oury Jalloh, who had to enforce itself through countless attacs from state forces.

Invitation to the climbing harness liberation party, 12/18 Aachen

Dear Aktivisti!

The long wait ends! The containers in the Asservatenkammer Aachen were emptied, hundreds of confiscated objects from the maddest of all expulsios sorted and registered.

For us this means: the harness-liberation-front will become active!
We want to bring back what was taken from us – collectively!

That’s why we organize on 18.12. a harness-liberation party, wrap it up as pre-Christmas activist gifts and have plenty of cause to wildly give them back to ourselves. The time is funnily limited to 9-11 am – but that should not stop us! more…

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). more…

Demo Against the swing to the right and state repression

Two trials against anti-fascist / anti-racist activists will soon take place in Aachen. We call for a solidary accompaniment of the processes and a demo against the shift to the right and repression. The dates at a glance

One trial will take place following the events in the Frankenberger Viertel in March 2017. There was a quarrel with two organized neo-Nazis. Shortly thereafter, two people were arrested, they were accused of civil disorder and bodily injury. The public prosecutor’s office promptly fantasized about the danger of absconding and put the two on remand for more than two weeks. Now they are charged. more…

Brand I: On property rights to land and forests

Brand III: Resistance within riches (updated 2018 version)

This week we’ll be screening the Brand trilogy by Susanne Fasbender at the Hambi-Camp in Manheim. Impressive and sometimes surreal oppressive scenes from the coal country of Rhineland (and in particular the Hambi) depict the epic devastation caused by resource extraction & land grabbing in context of the economic growth paradigm and the climate crisis – a process that has been affecting this region across generations now.
