(en) France, Alternative Libertaire AL special July-August - Hamburg holds hell at G20 by AL Bruxelas (fr, it, pt) [machine translation]
Wed, 12 Jul 2017 08:50:05 +0300
The G20 summit (the 19 most economically and politically powerful countries as well as the
European Union) will take place in the port city of Hamburg in northern Germany on 7 and 8
July. ---- This summit will be an opportunity for the bourgeois and imperialist states to
safeguard the capitalist order responsible for the wars, misery and exile of tens of
millions of people throughout the world. The key objectives of the G20 2017 will be the
distribution of spheres of influence, geopolitical interests and coordination of global
operations. ---- The summit will be held at the Congress Center in the very heart of the
city of Hamburg, 1km from the popular and rebel area of Sankt Pauli, which the police
classified as " at-risk zone " during the summit. What is perceived as a provocation for
its inhabitants, who are not accustomed to bend their backs against the fachos and the
bosses, may well prove to be an opportunity to carry a stroke to the capitalist machine.
On April 28th, 3,500 supporters of the mythical club of St. Pauli demonstrated in the
streets of Hamburg with the message " Smash G20. Welcome to the hell of Sankt Pauli ".
Hamburg, a real bastion of the radical German left, is determined to mobilize against this
summit of the rich and the powerful. The inhabitants will be joined by hundreds of
thousands of demonstrators from all over Germany, Europe and the world. We expect between
100 and 150,000 people against the G20. A real bastion of the radical German left, intends
to mobilize against this summit of the rich and the powerful. The inhabitants will be
joined by hundreds of thousands of demonstrators from all over Germany, Europe and the
world. We expect between 100 and 150,000 people against the G20. A real bastion of the

The inhabitants will be joined by hundreds of thousands of demonstrators from all over
Germany, Europe and the world. We expect between 100 and 150,000 people against the G20.
The German repressive apparatus also switches on. The Schengen agreements will be
suspended for probably a month around the G20 with reinstatement at border controls and
around Hamburg. 15 to 20,000 police officers will be mobilized to maintain order.
On the side of the activists several mobilizations are already planned for three days. On
6 July, the international anti-capitalist demonstration called " Welcome to Hell ",
called by the autonomous, will take place. The following day (Friday, July 7th) will be
devoted to the various direct actions against the G20 grouped under the name
#HamburgCityStrike (Color The Red Zone, Shut down the logistics of capital, Mass Climate
Resistance Action). The day will end with a revolutionary demonstration. Finally, The
counter-summit will end on Saturday 8 July with a major demonstration on the theme of
solidarity without borders.
At the same time, two camps (an anti-capitalist camp and a large camp) will be organized
to accommodate the participants for a whole week, despite the attempts to prohibit them
from the authorities of the city.
" Do not fight the players, fight the game "
It goes without saying that the planned mobilizations are not exempt from all reproach.
The mobilizations against the great capitalist masses are ritualized and participate in a
form of spectacle that the cops, the media and the government have learned to channel and
How then can we question this gigantic and spectacular mise-en-scene, which is dominated
by the state, the media and the bourgeois class ? This is the question that the German
initiative NoG20 is trying to answer, whose mobilization has as its motto " do not fight
the players, fight the game " and Objective of blocking the logistics of capital, Namely
the port of Hamburg (the third in Europe) and thus not focus on capital managers but on
the system itself.
Anyway, Alternative Libertaire will be present in Hamburg to respond to the call of German
activists with the principles of convergence of struggles, radical criticism of
capitalism, direct action and respect for diversity Tactics !
