(en) France, Alternative Libertaire AL special July-August - Hamburg holds hell at G20 by AL Bruxelas (fr, it, pt) [machine translation]

Date 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.

Expected repression

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 repress.
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 !
