G20 Summer Schedule (Hamburg)

To fill this year’s summer break, the federal government, in successful cooperation with the Hamburg Senate, has come up with a real treat:

This year’s meeting of the G20 will take place in the heart of Hamburg, or, more precisely: at the trade fair halls (Messehallen). A lot has been written about the background to this choice, for the sake of keeping a better overview we won’t repeat it all. Nevertheless it is worth saying that this will be the most interesting and most exciting, but also most exhausting days for the radical left in Hamburg for a long time. This event will definitely outclass Bambule and #2112. Whether this will be positive or negative, we don’t want to judge here, this also lies in the eyes of the beholder.

The sabre-rattling on the side of authorities and police has long since started. There is massive armament taking place, special units of riot police for securing evidence and making arrests are being equipped with machine guns, new tanks are being purchased, 20,000 cops in town, there will be bodyguards of a wide range of governmental leaders armed and potentially trigger-happy, there are warnings of casualties and the entire event is happening just within spitting distance of our neighbourhoods.

Theoretically, all of this should be enough to justify taking to the streets, but the root cause of the whole charade should not be ignored or get lost amongst the fuss: the G20 are claiming themselves to represent a majority of the world’s population and are pretending to sit down together in the interest of these people. It is beyond doubt, however, that this meeting is much more about geopolitical interference, the maximization of profits and the exploration of new capital markets – this is simply what the neoliberal system ensures.

There will be a wide and diverse range of possibilities to voice our discontent with this during the summit. Particularly two bigger demonstrations are to be mentioned here:

On 6 July at 16hrs, the „G20 Welcome to Hell“ demonstration will kick off with a manifestation at the Fish Market (Fischmarkt). There are rumours that the announcement of the demo is already bringing beads of sweat to the Senate and the heads of police operations – whilst the autonomous movement is chomping at the bit. Despite all pre-operation assessments on the side of the police, including various nightmare scenarios, we will not be scared off and will go out and protest, for a leftist perspective and for a fair world. Wearing muted colours is recommended.

Two days later, on Saturday 8 July, more people than ever before will take to the streets in the City Centre under the motto “Solidarity without borders instead of G20”, to speak up together, against the current conditions, this type of politics and their self-proclaimed “Rulers of the World” with a variety of actions: ranging from environmental federations to unions and autonomous groups, from parents’ associations to religious groups and political parties. This protest will be massive and diverse to an extraordinary exten, both with regards to the range of people and the themes represented.

For more than 25 years, we have also been fighting for values within our club and within our fanbase. We have shown that another kind of football is possible and our commitment has never stopped at the stadium exit gates. Based on solidarity, FC St Pauli as a club itself, is representing a counter-model to the world of the G20 leaders and the misery produced by global capitalism as well. All St Pauli fans are therefore invited to join the St Pauli section at the major demo of various alliances on Saturday. You will recognize the section via the flags in brown and white. Together we will represent our club and will add our colours to the wide spectrum of protest.
We thereby want to provide a point of contact for all St Pauli supporters who want to march together.

Stand up for your opinion! Make your opposition heard! A better world is possible!

Apart from that, it is recommended to re-read „What to do when the going gets rough?” from the Rote Hilfe (Red Aid) which fortunately is available in different languages. There you can find useful legal tips for demos and for dealings with the state authorities.

New member: Brigada Azul Crema

We welcome Brigada Azul Crema as a new member of our network who joined us on the Alerta! meeting in Prague. The following section describes the group.

A group of fans met in 2005. We were without a real name. We were skinheads & punks who had been connected within the stands of Ritual del Kaoz (48 sector).  Many of them had been members since 1999 when Ritual del Kaoz was founded. In 2005 we decided to form an internal group to support Club América. From this time on we not only were a bunch of friends we also were a group dealing with the same problems (to work for family, to study, got a job). At this point in time we were 60% of our today’s size. In certain phases we were the only standing minority and more or less the head of the terraces.  In 2009 we established a name for ourselves: BRIGADA AZUL CREMA,  From then on our name stands for organized support of our Club and a radical way of life as skinheads or punks acting out of deep anti-fascist convictions.   Before we took the name Brigada Azul Crema others called us ”the balds” (skins), but we didn’t like that they generalize us in such a way as not all of our members were skinheads, so we decided to use the new name of the group. When we are in the stands we do not only supporter the team, we do it from an antifascist/anti-racist point of view.  We have done a lot of stuff inside and outside terraces like Antifa/Antiracists campaigns, Anti-homophobie campaigns, propaganda and banners. That’s our way of life and we are proud of that. Please feel free to join our group to be at the latest level about the club.  We wish to express our solidarity with all the Ultrà groups that share our belief.

We are fighting together!

AZUL CREMAS supporters

Antira 2016 report #5

2016-05-28-11-29-25

Antira – Ultrà Sankt Pauli

Selbstverständlich war die Vorfreude wieder groß auf eines der Highlights dieses Jahres. Für einige Hedonisten und Feierabendkommunisten richtet sich die komplette Jahresplanung, mindestens aber die gesamte Sommerplanung, nach dem Geschehen in Lärz, für andere wiederum dreht sich der Erdball nach dem Antira. Nach dem letztjährigen Abstecher nach Kopenhagen wurde das Ding wieder zu Hause ausgetragen. Home is where our Antira is.

Etwas unerwartet ging das Antira für einige bereits am Mittwoch los. Einige Freunde von AEK und Hapoel waren bereits zugegen, dementsprechend bot sich ein entspannter Abend am Jolly selbsterklärend an. Und bereits hier war das zu spüren, was das Antira ausmacht: eine positive Grundstimmung und entsprechend gute Vibes. Und am Mittwoch kann auch noch davon ausgegangen werden, dass der Faktor Vorfreude auf die kommenden Tage das ganze umso schöner macht.

Ein ordentliches Bündel an Aktivitäten abseits des Platzes wurde in der Vorbereitung aus dem Hut gezaubert. An dieser Stelle schon mal das erste große Danke! An alle Beteiligten für die Organisation des vielfältigen Programms! Neben den Partys und Konzerten gab es in diesem Jahr erstmalig die Ausstellung „Fußball in Hamburg im Nationalsozialismus“ in der Gegengerade zu sehen, ein neu gestalteter Graffiti-Corner in der Süd- und Nordkurve sowie die Chill-out Lounge mit Filmen verschiedenster Gruppen (sehr geil gemacht!). Nicht zu vergessen die Besichtigung der KZ-Gedenkstätte in Neuengamme, die auf reges Interesse (insbesondere unserer internationalen Gäste) gestoßen ist.

Thematisch haben sich die Podiumsdiskussionen und Vorträge diesjährig an aktuellen Themen wie Fan-Karte und Möglichkeiten europaweiter Solidarität mit Geflüchteten orientiert. Beides sind Themen, die in vielen Kurven zu wichtigen Auseinandersetzungen geführt und unterschiedlichste Aktivitäten in Gang gebracht haben.

Ein Rückblick in die faschistische Geschichte der BRD gaben die Zeitzeug*innen Bert Woudstra aus Enschede und die allbekannte Esther Bejerano mit ihren Freunden von der Microphone Mafia.

Wie jedes Jahr gibt gab es auch in diesem Jahr die ein oder anderen Überraschungsbesuch. Die Ultras von Sakhnin beispielsweise, erstmals als Gruppe zu Besuch beim Antira und enge Freunde unserer Homies aus Tel Aviv. Sie erschienen zahlreich und hatten bereits nach dem ersten Tag richtig Bock auf das mehr. Ich bin auf das Antira im nächsten Jahr, irgendwo zwischen Wüste und Mauer, gespannt. Die Vorfreude darauf ist bereits jetzt schon riesig!
