During a G8 summit blockade near Bad Doberan, following repeated media warnings a so-called "agent provocateur" has been unveiled. This violence provoking state employee has sneaked into the peaceful anti-G8 sit-in action and instigated people to violent deeds.
Apparently, various activists have tried to hold back this still unmasked guy, who showed up his aggressive temper urging people around him to violence. But eventually some protesters identified this man in black with a policeman.
When the news about this man's identity went round, activists literally mobbed him. The agent provocateur was freed by some Legal Team members from the mess he'd got himself into and handed him over to his police colleagues.
During the clashes between anti-capitalist globalization protesters and police it had already been cried out that violence by state paid agents provocateurs had massively contributed to the escalation of 2nd June in Rostock.
"According to eyewitness reports, a group of four or five young men in black clothes drew attention because of their exceptional aggression towards the police. When asked to reveal their identity, they fled. But one of them was caught and unmasked, and someone recognized him as a policeman from Bremen."
Spiegel also reports on a response by the police:
'Fact is that we do not miss any of our men', said the police spokesman. In his opinion, such a thing does not belong “into a constitutional state, that would be disproportionate and not acceptable”. However, he said he was not informed about everything that for example the Verfassungsschutz (an Intelligence agency) does. A clear denial sounds different."
