dkp logo neuFollowing the completion of the negotiations between the SPD and CDU/CSU in Germany, chair of German Communist Party (DKP) Patrik Köbele has shared a press release, regarding the outcome. Köbele called for democrats to reject the grand coalition appeal.

The chair of German Communist Party (DKP) Patrik Köbele commenced his analysis with clarifying that SPD is wanted to have its place in the government.

Especially some of the ministerial positions were appointed as if “good bait catching fine fish”, to convince the members of SPD and influence their decision in the upcoming days to get an approval.

firThe International Federation of Resistance Fighters (FIR) – Antifascist Association and its member federations commemorate every year the January 27, 1945, the Liberation-Day of extermination camp Auschwitz by soldiers of the Red Army. To remember the end, it is also needed to face the beginning and the roots of these crimes. That is why we call to remember January 30, 1933 too.

January 30, 1933 is not a “day of remembrance”, it is an obligation for all antifascist-oriented people to prevent any repetition.

It is necessary to prevent the organizations of the labor movement from being prosecuted again. Unionists, Communists and Social Democrats were the first deported to concentration camps whose organizations were persecuted, banned and crushed.

In a message from Luckau prison to his wife Sophie, Karl Liebknecht wrote in April 1918: »Action - Action! Is nothing at all possible? But it must be! And it must not be eased up but only tightened. Now more than ever.«

Almost a hundred years have passed since then. »Is nothing at all possible?«, we often ask ourselves today. And we answer like Liebknecht: »But it must be ... Now more than ever.«

German Communist PartyThe result of the election represents a shift to the right with all dangers entailed with it.. The AfD is a racist, nationalist force, a hinge to the frank Fascists, becoming the third-strongest party in the Bundestag with 13 percents. It is the strongest Party in Saxony and the second strongest in all East Germany. CDU, SPD, Green and Left Party lost voters to the AfD.

PFLPThe Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine issued the following statement on the recent media reports related to the German national (Bundestag) Elections:

The Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine has witnessed a media and political campaign by racist far-right forces in Germany in collaboration with racist Zionist groups and political parties in Israel attacking the Palestinian and Arab community in Germany and attempting to spread fear in the community, as well as attacking German progressive forces, particularly the Marxist-Leninist Party of Germany, under the auspices of a complete deception and a big lie, most recently adopted by the far-right, fascist “Alternative fur Deutschland” (AFD) party.

The German government has shut down the German Indymedia site linksunten.indymedia.org, the most widely used German-language platform for radical politics and organizing. They have also conducted raids in Freiburg to seize computers and harass those they accuse of maintaining the site, absurdly justifying this on the grounds that the alleged administrators constitute an illegal organization for the sake of destroying the German Constitution. This represents a massive escalation in state repression against what the authorities call “left-wing extremism,” disingenuously suggesting an equivalence between those who seek to build communities beyond the reach of state violence and Neo-Nazis organizing to carry out attacks and murders like the ones in Charlottesville last week.

The German interior minister Thomas de Maizière today ordered the site linksunten.indymedia.org to be taken down. Three people have been served with court orders and rooms have been searched. Computers and other material were confiscated. The order states that the site is »by its intention and practice in violation of the law«.

The site is part of the international indymedia open posting platform that was established in the early 2000s. In recent years, linksunten (literally »bottom left«, due to its geographical location in Freiburg in the south-west corner of Germany) has been one of the more active indymedia sites, with many communiques and radical discussions having been published.

Photo: RedGlobeOn the evening of July 6th the police has violently attacked the »Welcome to Hell« demonstration at it’s starting point at Fischmarkt in order to prevent any demonstration from happening. Both the protest rave the night before and the initial event this afternoon took place without any incident.

At 7 pm, by the time the demonstration was about to start, the police goon squads stormed with brute force into the crowd assembled. The people present were subject to severe beating by police forces using batons and in addition the crowd was attacked with pepper spray and water cannons. Apparently dozens of activist have been injured – some of them seriously. Up until 9.30 pm the G20 Legal Team has taken note of more than 50 arrests.

Stop G20We reproduce a press release by the NoG20 International coordination:

As international campaigners preparing to travel to Hamburg for the demonstrations against the G20 summit in July, we call for the defence of basic civil and political liberties currently being denied: the right to protest, the freedom of assembly, the freedom of movement. In our open letter from May 17 to the people of Hamburg (http://g20-protest.info/category/general-information/open-letter-to-hamburg/) we stressed that we stand for values many people in Hamburg also share: of democracy and human rights, ecological sustainability and peace, opposition to austerity and neoliberalism, rejection of racism and sexism. Trump and Putin, Erdogan and Xi, Merkel and Macron, Modi and Zuma, Temer and Macri, May and King Salman do not represent us – and the world they want comes at our expense.
