Deadline for

imc-germany 09.11.2012 - 18:03
Bild In July only a very small number of media activists (from Hamburg,Berlin, and Nuremberg) met in Hamburg at a Germany-wide meeting. The meeting was exclusively dedicated to the purpose of discussing if and how the website could be maintained. Against the background of taking stock of the current situation, they decided that spring 2013 should be fixed as a deadline for themselves and the project. Till then, the goal is to find more activists and switch to a new CMS (or, at least, make a start). Should those two goals not be achieved, then will be deactivated and archived.

Bild Six years after the G8 Summit in Genoa the trails against protesters and members of the police forces are still continuing. the trials against the police and carabineri have been delayed to benefit from the new regulations of prescriptive periods. The procecutors Canepa and Canciani show strenght in the trials against the 25 activists. Never before in the context of street protest such high charges were asked for.
In Germany activists call for a protest on November 17th. Under the slogan "Against the surveillance state and arbitrariness" people demand that a few people should not get punished for a legitimate and collectiv protest by facing them with specially contructed charges.

Four German activists have been arrested on suspicion of being members or supporters of an alleged 'terrorist organisation' [lawyers' press release | de]. The German federal police suspect that Militante Gruppe (MG or Militant Group) was behind several arson attacks against police and army vehicles since the group surfaced in 2001 [Federal Prosecution's press release]. The direct actions are said to have included an attack on German federal police vehicles to protest against their involvement in immigration deportations and another in response to the G8 raids earlier this year. If found guilty, the four could face up to 10 years in prison. Another three men have been accused but not arrested.

Bild As hundreds of G8 delegates arrived in Germany, mass blockades interrupted their reaching the summit's venue in Heiligendamm. Over 10,000 protesters blocked most of the routes leading to Heiligendamm, 'breaching' the no-demonstration zone around the fence. Despite the largest security operation in German history since World War II and almost unprecedented repression, protesters managed to cripple the summit on the streets of Rostock and Heiligendamm. Official G8 organisers were forced to call "Plan B", ferrying summit attendees by boat or helicopter, while many were delayed or returned.

Bild The G8 summit has come to an end and the 8 heads of state, along with their tails, have gone back home, and so have thousands of protesters who were there to make sure they don't get what they want so easily. But while the former will continue with their lies and fucked-up policies, so will the latter with their fights and struggles.
