(en) Germany, Anarchist FAU called for Demonstration for Union Liberties Accompanies Berlinale Award Ceremony

Date Tue, 23 Feb 2010 12:17:20 +0200


On February 20, 2010, 600 people marched through Berlin for more union liberties in Germany. The FAU Berlin had called for the protest because a Berlin court barred them from referring to themselves as a union. ---- This resulted from a year-long conflict about working conditions at the Babylon Mitte Cinema, which is one of the Berlinale's venues. Members of different social movements joined the protest, such as antifascists and left-wing unionist. In her speech, Dr. Renate Hürtgen from the Committee for Union Liberties said that more than half of the unions in other European countries would be prohibited if German laws would apply to them. ---- "This is an attack on the workers' freedom of association and pertains to all workers. We're happy that the debate about the right to form unions in Germany has reached a wider audience. This is only the beginning of a struggle that concerns the basic principles of labour law here and which we will fight to the end," says Lars Röhm, secretary of the FAU Berlin.
