This is not "only" about the precarity camp, because in the house are the offices of the "anti atom aktuell", a monthly anti nuke magazine for grassroot activism (anti-atom-aktuell.decontact: email@example.com ). The conviscated computers belonged to the editorial office of this magazin. so it seems police and prosecuting authorities wanted to exert pressure on both the precarity camp and the anti-nuclear movement.
It seems German authorities today tried to silence both grassroot media work on the internet as well as in alternative print media.
The order from the court said (summarized): "that on the website the term "Yomango" (a spanish slang term for " I'm stealing ") is used and in a preliminary programm for the camp presented on this website a Yomango-action" was mentioned."
And thats all, they basically just stated that Yomango means "I steal" and therefore they consider the use of this term as criminal, which seems to be enough to seize the computer equipment of the activists.
Some 30 cops were involved, searching and filming the entire house for several hours.
The activists ask for support also by expressing protest to the responsible authorities:
