(Photo: picture alliance / Christophe Ga) After the riots at the G20 summit, left-wing autonomous projects such as the Rote Flora in Hamburg or the Rigaer Straße in Berlin are moving forward in focus.
It was also behind the “Welcome to Hell” demonstration, at which there had been serious riots on Thursday evening before the start of the G20 summit. “The pictures of Hamburg are a turning point. Now at the latest, the so-called left-wing activists have responded Level of violent Nazis and therefore they should also receive exactly the same treatment, “said Armin Schuster, CDU chairman in the interior committee of the Bundestag, the” Bild “newspaper. The criminologist Christian Pfeiffer, however, warns in the “Passauer Neue Presse” before an eviction: “That would trigger a massive fight.” Flora lawyer Andreas Beuth rowed back when assessing the riots. “Such actions are meaningless violence and have crossed a line,” he told the “Hamburger Abendblatt”. On Saturday, Beuth had caused outrage when he said on ARD: “We as the Autonomous and I as the spokesman for the Autonomous have certain sympathies for such actions, but please not in our own neighborhood where we live. So why not somehow in Pöseldorf or Blankenese? “Not only in Hamburg’s Schanzenviertel, but also in other parts of the city such as Altona, riots broke out during the summit days, dozens of cars went up in flames.
A total of around 500 police officers were injured. 51 suspects are currently in custody. Among them are numerous Germans as well as citizens from France, Italy, Spain, Russia, the Netherlands, Switzerland and Austria. The federal government called on its EU partners to step up the search for the perpetrators. “Many photos and video recordings are now being evaluated in order to identify the perpetrators. We also depend on the support of our foreign partners,” wrote Justice Minister Heiko Maas to his European colleagues, according to information from the Funke media group.
According to the report, Maas asked the EU justice ministers to have national authorities deal with German legal assistance requests in connection with the G20 riots as a matter of urgency. At the same time, he asked for European arrest warrants to be executed quickly, which would be issued by the German side. Scholz wants to make a government statement on Wednesday in the Hamburg citizenship. The Hamburg CDU has called for his resignation. He is accused of playing down the dangers in the run-up to the G20 summit.
In addition to Scholz, Interior Senator Andy Grote, Police President Ralf Meyer and Operations Manager Hartmut Dudde are also criticized.

Those affected continue to protest and are now receiving support from the Greens and the SPD. Hamburg’s Greens want to overturn the controversial imposition of a danger zone in parts of the Hanseatic city with a parliamentary resolution.
In a motion for the citizenship meeting in two weeks, they demand that the zone established by the police be lifted immediately. “For the alliance against violence that we are calling for, the establishment of the danger zone is counterproductive,” stressed parliamentary group leader Jens Kerstan. The authorities would now have to calmly pursue criminals. Schleswig-Holstein’s SPD leader Ralf Stegner also warned of an escalation of the situation. “Every government must act against violence against police officers with a zero tolerance strategy,” said Stegner to the “Hamburger Abendblatt”.to kill a mockingbird examples of courage At the same time, the right to peaceful demonstrations is a valuable asset and is constitutionally protected. The reaction of the police and politicians to violence must always be proportionate. Around 350 people demonstrated again late on Wednesday evening against the danger area in Hamburg that the police had declared.
According to the police, the elevator in the St. Pauli district had not been registered. An uninvolved passer-by was hit by a stone, he was taken to a hospital with head injuries. Smaller groups of demonstrators were said to be in Hamburg’s Schanzenviertel and in the districts of Altona and St.
Pauli was on the way, the police spokesman reported. Occasionally, firecrackers were thrown at the police and a construction fence on the street, there were traffic obstructions. A car burned in the old town of Altona.
The flames spread to another car. For days, demonstrations have been directed against the danger area in the Hanseatic city. It was launched last Saturday after serious riots and attacks on police stations, some of which were seriously injured. Police officers are allowed to check people in the area regardless of suspicion. Source: ntv.de, nsc / dpa “News and information at a glance.

What’s it all about? These are the most important questions and answers to the controversial decision. The riots at the demonstration on December 21, 2013. (Photo: picture alliance / dpa) What is currently happening in Hamburg? In Hamburg there have been violent clashes between them over the past few weeks left protesters and police.
The focus of the debate is the dispute over the preservation of the left-wing cultural center “Rote Flora” and the “Esso houses” as well as the right to stay for the Lampedusa refugees. The protests culminated in a demonstration on December 21, when 500 demonstrators and over 150 police officers were injured.
A week later there were attacks between autonomous and police officers near the Davidwache on the Reeperbahn. At the beginning of the year, the police then declared parts of Altona, St. Pauli and the Sternschanze a danger area. Almost 90,000 inhabitants are affected.What is a danger area? Controls in a Hamburg pedestrian zone (Photo: picture alliance / dpa) The establishment of danger areas has been regulated since 2005 in the “Law on Police Data Processing” in Paragraph 4, Paragraph 2 of Hamburg State Law.
According to this, the police can independently and without a judicial order declare areas in which they can stop and question people without cause or suspicion, determine their identity and check objects carried. The general police law otherwise presupposes a concrete suspicion in order to check a person. The police justified their decision with the repeated attacks on police officers and the preventive fight against criminal offenses. At the weekend alone, 400 people were checked, a good 90 residence bans issued, eight dismissals issued and one person arrested. A head of department can decide whether to designate a danger area. Do the police in other federal states have similar special rights? There are several states in which similar measures are possible, for example in the Free State of Bavaria. Here, however, the danger area is limited to so-called “dangerous places” such as public spaces or pubs, which are popular transshipment points for drug deals. If a corresponding location is declared dangerous, the police can also check anyone who is not suspect. There are similar regulations in Berlin, Hesse and partly also in Baden-Württemberg. Danger areas How long can the police maintain a danger area? That depends on further developments.
The police can maintain or terminate the danger zone at their own discretion. Does the police decision to establish a danger zone have to be approved by another authority? No, the approval of a judge is not required when designating a danger zone. As police law expert Dirk Heckmann explains, this is also not mandatory. “A judge’s reservation is constitutionally provided where there is a significant interference with fundamental rights. This applies, for example, to house searches, deprivation of liberty and online searches,” explains the lawyer. The personal controls associated with the establishment of a danger area are below this threshold.
Many opponents of the procedure criticize precisely this point. You speak of a general suspicion, of a license for police arbitrariness and a lack of proportionality. Is the measure of the Hamburg police constitutional? The Hamburg Administrative Court has declared the legal basis of the danger areas to be constitutional if the police apply them restrictively. There must be concrete evidence that significant crimes such as dangerous physical injuries or arson are committed in a certain area. Each individual police check must be proportionate in itself.
It has to be clarified whether this was always the case in Hamburg. Professor Dirk Heckmann holds the chair for public law, security law and internet law at the University of Passau and is a part-time constitutional judge at the Bavarian Constitutional Court. When are the controls no longer proportionate? For example, if controls are carried out more intensively than allowed, for example if they are physically searched or detained for excessively long periods. Or if the danger area is drawn too far or remains arranged for too long. “The police must always check the extent to which the specific measure serves the purpose of the regulation to prevent crime,” says Heckmann. What can a citizen from Altona or St. Pauli do who is annoyed that he is checked daily on his doorstep ? Citizens can defend themselves and sue – against what they consider to be inadequate controls, possible attacks or against the arrangement of the danger area. The administrative court will then decide whether the police have committed misconduct or whether the status of the danger area is no longer appropriate.
However, the procedures usually take a relatively long time. At best, the plaintiff will experience late satisfaction if he is subsequently found to be right. The administrative court will only issue an interim, i.e. immediate, order if, for example, a danger area has been set up in an obviously inadmissible manner. How is it even guaranteed that the police exercise their special rights with moderation? According to Heckmann, the police cannot afford to maintain a dangerous area without any justification or to control or harass people in a disproportionate manner. “If the police are certified in court that they violate fundamental rights en masse, they risk their reputation as a friend and helper,” says Heckmann. “In the long run, however, it is dependent on its credibility and acceptance by the citizens.” What can the police do to ease the tense situation? Many people in Hamburg perceive the controls as threatening and see their freedom of movement restricted.
Lawyer Heckmann advises transparency in the arrangement of danger areas and the implementation of the necessary controls. Fears are also fueled by ignorance and speculation. Friendliness also has a de-escalating effect. Heckmann refers to the veil manhunt in the Free State of Saxony, also a suspect-independent identity check. There, the controlled citizens are informed about the procedure with specially created handouts and asked for their understanding. Even if this does not seem transferable to riot-like conditions in danger areas, the sound makes the music here as there. “Those who are at eye level,” said police officer Heckmann, “do not make decisions from above.” Source: ntv.de “” It is only a house. ” (Photo: picture alliance / Christophe Ga) After the riots at the G20 summit, left-wing autonomous projects such as the Rote Flora in Hamburg or the Rigaer Strasse in Berlin are coming into focus.
Parts of politics are calling for it to be closed. At least the people of Hamburg respond with a declaration of war. The left-wing autonomous Rote Flora Center in Hamburg has rejected all calls for closure after the serious riots during the G20 summit. “We are radical, but not stupid … Flora stays,” was the caption of activists in a message published after a meeting of the Flora plenary. If Mayor Olaf Scholz makes a government statement in the afternoon, however, one should be prepared for anything. In recent years, the autonomists have deliberately thrown the existence of the house into the balance in favor of political positions, it continues. “It’s just a house, a symbol, the evacuation of which is supposed to appease the angry citizens.” But in the event of an evacuation, autonomous politics and radical left movements would not disappear from the cityscape – on the contrary. With a view to the victims of the riots, the autonomists declared: “For us, emancipatory politics does not mean terrifying bystanders.” You could understand that residents reacted to the events with questions and incomprehension. The Autonomists announced that they would continue the discussion. “A self-critical analysis of the events within the scene will take place in the next few weeks.” At the same time, the activists sharply criticized the Hamburg Senate.
Trying to find a scapegoat for his own failure. “A climate is to be created in which the criminalization of political structures, as well as the smashing of the occupied Rote Flora project, but also of places like Rigaer Strasse in Berlin, should be prepared,” the statement said .de, jwu / dpa “” The Fritzbox 7490 receives a firmware update to FritzOS 6.60 (Photo: AVM) Manufacturer AVM publishes a Fritzbox firmware update.
