Berlin, March 19th 2022
For Maria B., Ferhat Mayouf, Qosay Khalaf, Gaetano B, Georgios Zantiotis,…
Shot in their homes, burned in their cells or beaten up when arrested until they lost consciousness and died.
They did not die, they were murdered. Murdered by cops. The police kill and the justice system covers up for them and tries to blame the dead.
In January the public prosecutor’s office in Hannover closed the investigation into a fatal use of the Taser in October 2021. Stating that the man had not died as a result of the use of the electro-taser but, according to the autopsy results, as an alcoholic with multiple organ failure.
The 39-year-old suffered a respiratory arrest 40 minutes after he was stopped with a Taser however to the public prosecutor’s office, it was not the electrical impulses that led to his death.
In February the Wuppertal (NRW) prosecutor’s office has announced that it is refusing to open an investigation into police officers involved in the arrest of Giorgios Zantiotis in November 2021. The autopsy found Giorgios had died from a drug cocktail in connection with a heart defect. The video of his arrest showed him being dragged to the ground and repeatedly beaten, but its the drugs that killed him?
It’s the racist and macho system kept up by cops and protected by the judicary that killed them. Deaths are tacitly accepted and the murders are presented as having no alternative or victims are transfigured into perpetrators so that the police action can be presented as legitimate self-defence. Cops are the executive branch of the state equipped with weapon’s and the state’s monopoly on the use of force.
They control us, lock us up, search us and our apartments, beat and kill, deport and oppress us.
Recently so-called police interventions claimed the life of a 21-year-old Moroccan man who had fallen into coma following being chased and arrested by cops in July 2021 in Bonn. On 9 February, the „apparently confused state“ of a 33-year old in Hamburg let cops to use „physical force“. The man died shortly after in hospital. On 24 February, a man was shot dead in Bavaria.
Even if we don’t know the names of those recent deaths we will remember them as we remember all those the cops killed. And we will keep reminding the cops that they are the murderers. We will fight for the end to this violence and state killings.
Against the state, against capital and all forms of authority.
As some comrades from Bremen wrote: „Anger against the police grows with every checkpoint, every harassment, every beating and every killing. Out of anger can grow resistance. May the stones hit the target and the bonfires light up our nights.“
Out of this anger we attacked the police station at Sophie-Charlotte-Platz in the night of March 19th. We used bitumen to spray some of their cars and locked the gate for the parked cars to make sure that at least tonight, the thugs cannot attack and harrass people with them. We left the message „For those you killed“ on their wall.
no justice, no peace – Fight the police
In rememberance of Maria, Ferhat, Qosay, Gaetano and Georgios and all victims of state violence.
who do the cops call when they are attacked? 😉
