Freedom For Sabine, Axel, And Harald!
On Sunday, December 19, 1999, at 6:00am, around 1000 police, masked
GSG-9 cops, BKA-BGS-BAW agents, and local Berlin pigs raided the Mehringhof
in Berlin-Kreuzberg. At the same time, Harald and Axel, two volunteers from
the Mehringhof, were arrested in Berlin, and Sabine was arrested at her
home in Frankfurt. All three are being charged with membership in a
"terrorist association", the Revolutionary Cells (RZ). One is
charged with storing and maintaining weapons and explosives in the
Mehringhof complex. During the raid on the Mehringhof, about 20 people who
had been at a party there the night before were detained for 5-6 hours,
during which time they could not use the phone or the toilets or drink
water. Three of these people may have been arrested, and one person is now
in deportation custody. It was three hours before tenants of the complex
could enter. In the meantime, all locks had been broken open and the entire
city block was sealed off. The cops searched all the rooms in the complex,
checked the computers, confiscated papers, tore up the floors, and drilled
holes in the walls in an effort to find explosives.
And what did they find? Nothing!
In the meantime, Sabine, Axel, and Harald were carted off to Karlsruhe,
and then to jail cells in Wuppertal, Dusseldorf, and Cologne. Outside the
Mehringhof, police provoked and attacked protestors, and arrested two
people, who have since been released.
Sabine, Axel, And Harald Must Be Set Free Immediately!
