(en) Poland, rozbrat.org: Hamburg against all of the G20. Riots in response to austerity Participants FA Poznan and the Collective Siren [machine translation]

The organization of the G20 summit in Hamburg was to be a show of force of global elites. This city is a hub for port workers and traditionally an important focus of social revolts in Germany. The decision on his election to the place where is held the G20 was designed to confirm that the participants are able to suppress all resistance to their plans to impose policy crisis, cuts in social security, militarism and nationalism. The scale of the protests residents of Hamburg and groups from all over Europe, however, surpassed the imagination of policymakers. ---- Contrary to media transfers of residents of the city were an important group among the protesters. Their actions took on the form of banners hanging from the windows of houses, the strike of teachers and students of secondary schools, actively participate in the demonstrations, opening markets in order to gain access to the means of subsistence, as well as self-defense against the aggressive behavior of the police. It's understandable, even if one takes into account that Hamburg has paid dearly for the organization of the summit. City budget has been depleted of millions of euros. Thus the party for a few consisted of all residents, some of whom expressed their opposition on the streets.

The main goal of the protests was the Congress Center lying in the heart of the city. The German authorities have surrounded them, but the police cordons, barbed wire, armored transporters and water cannons. Therefore, the height of the protests took place in other central districts of the city - St. Pauli, Altona, Sternschanze. Several times they came in to destroy banks, looting supermarkets and shops network of global brands. In this way, the protesters expressed their opposition to the police and the political oppression and regained their livelihoods, to which every day have limited access due to low wages, unemployment and lack of social security.

Politicians and the media with them to define these events as hell on earth. Certainly, a condition in which the population recovers the wealth generated from the perspective of elites is hell on earth. Food riots are hell for the rich, who live off the labor of others, but for working poor living with their own hands universal access to means of subsistence is paradise. Politicians and business unions fight, make eviction, destroying the health service etc., thereby limiting employee access to the products of their own labor. Some of those who are in Hamburg dared to reach for his, felt firsthand the brutality of the German authorities. It should however be borne in mind that the scale of state violence they have experienced in recent days, is incomparable with the slaughters dokonywanymi years in Syria, Ukraine, Iraq, Afghanistan and elsewhere in the world, for which the responsible politicians would meet during the next G20 summits.

G20 meeting provoked a wave of social resistance in the streets of Hamburg, who took different forms. The authorities claim that it is a manifestation of left-wing extremism, although in reality it is spontaneous and rational response to poverty and exploitation, which is repeated throughout the history of capitalism. Business and political elites deepen inequalities not only in following the summits like the G20, but above all by the receiving society the fruits of his daily work. Therefore, fighting against exploitation, we are organizing in their own cities, without waiting for new protests against the international summits.
