On September 17, 2021 there was an attack with Molotov cocktails on the police station of the Property Protection in Tiergarten (Thomas-Dehler-Straße). We expressed our irreconcilability with that institution, in whose hand people are injured and murdered every day.

After some months have already passed, we want to comment again. On the one hand, because this attack was little noticeable or was hardly taken up. On the other hand, because we want to explain the method we chose to make it accessible and imitable to all.
The area of the property guards (small explanation see below) borders on three sides directly on the extensive Tiergarten and is accessible only by a street in a small quarter, which ends shortly after the entrance to the guard for cars in a dead end. There is a one-story building and two parking lots on the site, where 1-4 cars are parked, depending on break and shift times.
One of the goals of our attack was to ignite the parked cars with the use of Molotovs. It was clear that there would be several cops in the building at night. To scare them with our sudden appearance from the darkness was another goal. We were also concerned with showing that their infrastructure was vulnerable to attack at any time and when they were not expecting it.
However, we did not take into account that the cops inside the building could quickly put out the fires on the cars and thus keep the material damage relatively low. Since there is a fence around the police station and the windows of the building provide a good overview of the small area, we could not get close to the cars and therefore decided to use Mollis as a method, which is actually more suitable for keeping cops at a distance than for causing large-scale damage to cars or buildings.
