The tanks are rolling through Europe and the war has been dominating the headlines for weeks. But we have not woken up in a new world, as the press and politicians have been trying to make us believe since the war in Ukraine. The current war is the direct result of a militarized world. It is the same dirty racist and murderous system that we attacked on New Year’s Eve. It is the same capitalist system that divides people into groups and rules over them. The very system in which some get and stay rich with arms exports. It is the same Nato that has been waging war for years and that acts in the same militaristic logic as the authoritarian pig Putin. No, the only thing “new” about the situation is that the warlike misery has moved closer to Europe.
At the turn of the year, we set fire to a company building of OHB in Bremen. The fire unfolded in an exemplary manner and destroyed an entire building. According to OHB, the jobs of 330 employees were rendered unusable for the time being. The damage, worth millions, still delights us every day. What followed in January and February was the purest propaganda show by cops and politicians.
We learned from the media that a security guard was allegedly in an anteroom of the attacked building. According to our observations, no one was in the completely darkened building at the time of the attack. We did not want to wantonly put anyone in danger. The attack was of course not aimed at this presumably precariously employed person who has to work in a multi-million dollar corporation on New Year’s Eve. We wanted to harm the arms company OHB and sabotage its war-mongering work.
That the attack was right is shown not only by the reaction of the cops and the press. Wow, what a wave! Directly the day after, the Senator for Economy, Labor and Europe from the party Die Linke has herself photographed at the scene, backs OHB and denies that OHB is an arms company that cooperates with Frontex. Politics and the arms industry in common interest for Bremen as a business location. A disgusting melange! Continue reading “Bremen, Germany: A supplement to burning offices and crying bigwigs”
