G20 protest and state repression. Solidarity with Peike and other prisoners!

The G20 in Hamburg and the protests against it took place around two months ago already, but its aftermath is still in full course. Duringthe G20, political and economic leaders of the world gathered in orderto plan the continuation of their wars, exploitation of people and animals, and the destruction of the environment. To revolt against this is necessary and gives hope. Hundreds of thousands of people took to the streets in Hamburg to obstruct these festivities for the elite. The German state, in an attempt to criminalise a few individuals, has now rapidly changed the topic to bottles and fireworks which were thrown (or not) during the riots. Not very convincing as a distraction for the real problems in this world.

From Avalanche- #11, July 2017 (anarchist correspondence)

To be in conflict with power doesn’t mean to be gene­ rally hostile towards power. The hostility towards power begins with scepticism – the scepticism questioning its existence and necessity. A rational matter, on the one hand, which persuades us to develop rational analy­ses about the functioning and transformations of pow­ er. Although purely abstract, whereas the putting into practice of our hostilities towards power also means to move on to speaking about oneself and about conside­ring one’s own life as the field of projection for the own ideas. An irrational matter, on the other hand, a mat­ ter of heart, a matter of acting, an individual moment of rupture. A rupture, which overcomes the passive attitu­de of scepticism and creates by means of the own ideas and comrades projects that are attempting to push the hostility towards power in the direction of a permanent revolt and a generalised rupture with authority.

From Buzzfeed

Friday’s G20 was the first time in 16 years that the leaders of the world’s 20 largest economies had gathered in a city, and German authorities anticipated trouble. In the end, the clashes were milder than expected, thanks to tactics that isolated the most aggressive anarchists.

Police Raid on the G20 Camp: A Tale of Violence and Betrayal

What the Raid Shows about the Police States to Come

The week of demonstrations against the G20 summit in Hamburg got off to a telling start on Sunday. A lengthy court battle culminated with the highest court in Germany upholding the right of the anticapitalist camp to set up in Hamburg. Yet when they attempted to do so, the police blocked access to the park, directly violating the court ruling, then carried out a brutal raid in which several hundred riot police surrounded and brutalized campers and confiscated their belongings. The following firsthand account illustrates the world that the G20 summit in Hamburg represents—a world in which “peaceful protest” and court proceedings exist only to distract the naïve, while the whims of security forces are the law of the land. No wonder people are preparing to resist the G20.

Can’t Stop the Chaos: Autonomous Resistance to the 2007 G8 in Germany

From CrimethInc.

Ten years ago, Hamburg, Rostock, and the woods around the tiny German town of Heiligendamm witnessed massive confrontations as anarchists and other rebels attempted to interrupt and delegitimize the summit of the world’s eight most powerful nations. As the 2017 G20 Summit looms in Hamburg this July, we revisit the demonstrations that took place against the G8 summit in 2007—to seek strategic insights, study how the terrain has changed, and illustrate what it is like to lead lives of passionate resistance.
