"Solidarity Is A Weapon"
The police used the arrests for a series of raids in Berlin last week, including several private places and one bookshop.
Three of the arrested activists are under suspicion of having tried an arson attack on army vehicles last week, the fourth activist is under suspicion of having "written statements for the group". Prosecutors said that his publications (he is a sociologist) showed "parallels in terms and expressions with the militante gruppe". (!) All four activists are now under arrest in the prison Berlin-Moabit.
Many groups and initiatives are preparing a german wide demonstration for saturday september 15th to protest the increasing police repression and the involvement of the German army in Afghanistan.
