Under the headline “Death is a Master from Germany”, there was a demonstration in Hamburg on January, 28. About 5000 people followed the call of a vast alliance of antifascist organisations. Five groups, among them the anarchosyndicalist Freie ArbeiterInnen Union (FAU) Hamburg, published their own call for this event. Here is an after action review.
The call scandalizes the fact, that for 13 years long Nazis from Thuringia were travelling through Germany undisturbed while they robbed banks, laid bombs and murdered innocents. And that the homicides of the terror cell “Nationalsozialistischer Untergrund” (NSU) have only been revealed accidentally after the death of two Nazis in November 2011.
“In this context, the behaviour of the German secret service is shocking and words as “failure” are apparently too weak to describe their behaviour. The agency, as we know now, has been massively entangled in the terror of the NSU”.
Besides the claim for “a dignified commemoration of the Nazi terror's victims, families and friends”, the entanglement of Germany's secret service and other agencies needs to be revealed and: “the final abolishment of Germany”.
We intend to make it clear to Holland & Barrett that as long as they continue to use free labour to cut their staff costs their brand is tainted and the pickets will continue to turn away customers from their stores.
We hope that one of the things to emerge from the conference will be a national network and strategy for fighting against workfare. In the meantime we are calling on SolFed locals and other campaign groups to join us in keeping up the pressure on Holland & Barrett and other workfare beneficiaries in the coming weeks.
For more information on the conference or to register see the Brighton Benefits Campaign website.

Como dicen las malas lenguas, en Galiza existe una "Cultura do lume" (Cultura del fuego) que viene arrasando año tras año miles de hectáreas (ha) de terreno forestal. En el periodo 2001-2010 han ardido un total de 288.469,97 ha, lo que equivaldría a la extensión de la provincia de Áraba y un total de 72.425 incendios, unos 7.242 incendios anuales, mientras que la media estatal se sitúa en torno a los 21.500. Lo que supone que solo en Galiza se producen anualmente un 33,7% de los incendios forestales totales. La intencionalidad de estos comprende el 86,57%, sin contar las negligencias 5,10%, ni las causas desconocidas 7,77% del total de incendios forestales. Existen causas que responden a intereses económicos, sociales y políticos.
