Hamburg: Rote Flora prepares for house search

The Rote Flora squat in Hamburg published a message on their website that they have information that it looks like police authorities want to search the building in the coming weeks.

In a statement, the Rote Flora writes: “At present there is coming more and more information that the Rote Flora could be searched. We are calling to come to a general assembly in the Flora on day X at 08:00pm (20.00). Keep your eyes and ears open. Solidarity against their repression!”

In the aftermath of the NoG20 protests, politicians of various political parties called to evict the Rote Flora. But the Flora is not easy to evict. Lawyers predict a long legal battle when the owner of the building, the city of Hamburg, definitely decide to evict the squat. In a meeting of about 1000 neighbours, people demanded not to evict the Rote Flora, which was squatted almost 30 years ago. Solidarity is growing and German media is publishing more and more stories about the police violence and the escalating tactics of police authorities during the NoG20 protests. A house search of the Rote Flora could be an attempt to distract the attention from these escalating tactics by police authorities.


On Sunday, August 6, there will be a demonstration in Hamburg to support the NoG20 prisoners and to demand their release. The demo starts at 02:00pm (14:00) at the train station (S-Bahnhof) Billwerder-Moorfleet in Hamburg and will march to the JVA Billwerder prison.
