Prohibited? Do not lose your head!

Last Tuesday, the town of Garmisch-Partenkirchen has issued a ban against our camp. This has generated extensive media coverage and caused much outrage. So want to come among men, the next week to Garmisch-Partenkirchen in order to protest the G7, no uncertainty arises, we would like to explain in this text, what the ban means concretely.

At the camp on the northern outskirts of Garmisch-Partenkirchen, we wanted to provide for all arriving activists camping areas, food, water and electricity. The authorities want to prevent politics and at all costs. We will complain against the decision – should the action camp will have success built as planned.
But even if that does not succeed, we will leave no stone unturned in order to provide an infrastructure that allows thousands of people to reside in the district of Garmisch-Partenkirchen from 3rd to 8th of June.

The infrastructure that is needed to survive, we will also provide without Camp area – at a time of demonstrations, of which there are, distributed in the urban area, several are. These are logged around the clock and there are program so that man then can provide there. After right of assembly is allowed to stay there even throughout human. Only that is slept there, the police want to avoid in any case.

That is why we are looking for further parallel still faces – among others, we have applied for, two sports fields in Garmisch-Partenkirchen and Mittenwald, to use as a surface for sleeping. This would then not equipped with infrastructure for basic services would man control the duration of rallies.

It is tremendously important that we not let ourselves be put off by the run-up to repression. The Camp prohibition is intended to keep as many activists, or to get them to arrive only for the big demonstration and evening to disappear. This must not succeed!
Whether with or without the camp, we will be during the week of action through on-site, and logically then also sleep there! Whether this for Anwohner_innen, the environment and our nerves happens gentle a way as possible to, now rests solely on the cooperation of the community and at the decision of the Transferred.
We stay tuned and keep you up to date!
