Anarchists Launch Riots in Germany Print E-mail
by Tom McGregor    Wed, Jan 8, 2014, 08:35 PM

Violent Leftist organizations based in Hamburg, Germany have launched nationwide rioting attacks against German cities.

The BBC News reports that, "The US embassy in Berlin has issued a travel warning for Americans visiting Hamburg after a police crackdown on leftist protesters in the German port. Americans are advised in the warning to avoid demonstrations or public gatherings in the areas affected, which include the main nightlife district."

The German police have been cracking down on anarchist groups trying to seize power in the nation.

According to the BBC, "After some of the worst rioting seen in Germany in years, police declared parts of Hamburg "danger zones" on Saturday. The unrest has centred on the eviction of an anarchist community centre, the Rote Flora, which was set up by squatters in a former theatre nearly 25 years ago."

Masked rioters are pelting police stations with bottles and stones.

This is ridiculous. Anarchists trying to seize power in Germany? The movement is nowhere as powerful as it was in the 20's or 30's, with hundreds of thousands of participants organized in different federations, or even compared to the 80's, when the BZ and autonomen movement made up a sizeable chunk of the peace/environmental/alternative movements.

This is just about a couple of demonstrations of 10 000+ people trying to defend a social centre from police attacks, something which also has developed into popular protests against the abolishment of civil rights in a large urban German town. To say anything else is just downright engaging in scaremongering.

The Police of Hamburg had to admit that they were lying about 1 of the 2 attacks, so today they lifted a huge part of the "danger zones", keeping "danger islands" around 3 central police stations.

There has been no launching of rioting attacks against german city by anybody at all, the least by Hamburg's leftist organisations.

Critics agree that the Police provoked the violence to use it for their longterm strategy to increase wages and investments in equipment like taser guns.
