Indybay - Sun Aug 27, 2017 21:47 (en)
On August 25, the German government raided and shut down Linksunten Indymedia, an integral part of the global Independent Media Center network, and the most widely used German-language platform for radical politics and organizing. In Freiburg, riot police seized computers and harassed those they accuse of maintaining the site, justifying their actions on the grounds that the alleged administrators constitute an illegal organization intent on destroying the German Constitution. This represents a massive escalation in state repression against what the authorities call ?left-wing extremism,? disingenuously suggesting an equivalence between those who seek to build communities beyond the reach of state violence and Neo-Nazis organizing to carry out attacks and murders.

The German government has shut down the German Indymedia site, the most widely used German-language platform for radical politics and organizing. They have also conducted raids in Freiburg to seize computers and harass those they accuse of maintaining the site, absurdly justifying this on the grounds that the alleged administrators constitute an illegal organization for the sake of destroying the German Constitution. This represents a massive escalation in state repression against what the authorities call ?left-wing extremism,? disingenuously suggesting an equivalence between those who seek to build communities beyond the reach of state violence and Neo-Nazis organizing to carry out attacks and murders like the ones in Charlottesville last week.

In the time after Charlottesville, we are a movement in mourning. When we learned that far-Right groups (including some present at Charlottesville) were set to descend on the Boston Common in the name of ?free speech,? we formed plans to shut it down. As the number of counter-protesters intending to combat the event grew, a multiracial antifascist crew was assembled for the purpose of blocking fascist access to the event and defending our neighbors and community members, if needed.

Despite the efforts of the fascists and white supremacists to rebrand themselves after their attacks in Charlottesville, 40,000 counter-protesters turned out in Boston on Saturday to oppose their so called ?free speech rally? in the Boston Common. The counter-protesters outnumbered the fascists about 1,000 to 1, a clear improvement since the previous such event in Boston on May 13, when similar forces were able to take to the streets without significant numbers in opposition.
