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”
We usher in the new year with restless nights for Marco R. Fuchs and his billion-dollar space and defense company Orbitale Hochtechnologie Bremen (OHB System AG). With hammers, we smashed several windows of a building of OHB and then set the offices on fire.
The damage to the company’s image is certain. Happy new fear!
OHB System AG is considered a respected space and high technology company. Since the 1950s, OHB has mainly been building satellite-based systems used for military interests. Due to direct orders from the German Armed Forces, OHB can no longer even attempt the fig leaf of dual-use, i.e. using its satellites for both civilian and military purposes. OHB is an armaments group.
Defense groups are crisis winners: Despite the pandemic, OHB is not only visibly expanding by means of new buildings in the Bremen Technology Park, but is also tapping into the US market.

Attack on the arms company and Frontex OHB supplier in Bremen
Last night 24/11/21, we attacked the arms company OHB SE on the Manfred-Fuchs square in the industrial park of the university of Bremen and set several cars on fire.
OHB SE is one of the biggest players in the field of aeronautics and aerospace with its headquarters in Bremen, but it makes its money on the deaths with which the federal army and Frontex pave their way. In 2001, OHB became one of the biggest players in the satellite and aerospace sector when it won a contract worth more than 320 million euros with the German army ‘for the development, construction, launch and operation of the SAR-Lupe radar reconnaissance system’. This was to enable the German army to obtain information through autonomous military espionage, independent of weather conditions.
In 2008, the Federal Army officially received the satellite system. OHB itself stated: ‘With SAR-Lupe, OHB has succeeded for the first time in running a satellite program as the main contractor. In doing so, the company developed and built the satellite system and is jointly responsible with the Federal Armed Forces for its operation. OHB is thus not only a supplier to the Federal Army, but also actively participates in the German warfare and surveillance machine. In 2013, the German Army again placed an order with OHB for the development and construction of the SARah tracking system. This was and is to be used by the German army exclusively for military purposes.
The German army has had an unbroken tradition of killing since the beginning of its existence. Even today, hardly a week goes by without a right-wing extremist network being uncovered in the Federal Army or tons of ammunition disappearing, only to resurface in precisely these networks. The OHB not only provides the German army with the instruments it needs to commit murder, but also actively participates in this process itself.
But that’s not all; both SAR-Lupe and SARah data have been and are being passed on to Frontex. Frontex uses the data from the German surveillance satellites, as well as from the “earth observation program” COPERNICUS, to monitor potential routes of passage, groups of people on the routes of exile, as well as the boats they use to cross the seas and flee the war and terror that Europe exports to their countries of origin, all in order to eventually attack them.

We are for anti-militarism!
We are for a world that does not need borders!
We stand for desertion!
We are for response!
We are for anti-racism!
We are for a revolutionary perspective!
We are for revolutionary violence!
We are for the violence that opposes the horrible and brutal violence of social conditions!
We are for the struggle against war!
Sometimes it almost seems that the slogans of the radical left are outdated. Sometimes it seems as if the idea of a world without war is no longer in fashion. War is accepted with a shrug, as a realistic option. Sometimes it seems that all these military operations “without alternative” have put us to sleep. Sometimes. Encouraged by the attack on the arms company OHB in Bremen in November, we decided to fight the war here. That’s why in the early morning of December 7th we set fire to a fleet of army vehicles in the Neustadt district of Bremen – in the parking lot of the company MAN, which profits from the war.
As the old slogan says: what burns in Germany cannot cause damage elsewhere.
Twenty years of Afghanistan have shown us not only in a very banal way, but also in a very brutal way: war is shit, war brings nothing but suffering, destruction and death for many people, and huge profits for a few. Twenty years of war in Afghanistan, during which countless civilians have lost their lives. In addition there are all the dead who, while fleeing this murderous war, lost their lives on the way to a supposedly safe Europe. Drowned in the Mediterranean. Frozen to death on the north-eastern borders of Europe. The borders of this Europe that won the Nobel Peace Prize. It makes us vomit. Continue reading “Bremen, Germany: Against the borders of Europe! Army vehicles should burn (again and again)!”
