After last year there were manifestations and actions in several cities in the Federal Republic of Germany (FRG) regarding the 19th of June, Day of Heroism, also this year again actions took place in several cities of the country. These actions were even more powerful, more broad and more sucessful than last year. Through this very clearly more and more a new revolutionary tradition for 19th of June is getting established in the FRG. At this point we want to give a short overview of these actions.



Here a manifestation initiated by the „Initiative Freedom for all Political Prisoners“ with nearly 100 participants was held on 19th of June.

The actions were directed against racist police violence and commemoreted the first anniversary of the shooting of Adel B. in the working class neighbourhood Essen-Altendorf. The demonstration after the manifestation was not applied for with the cops (in Germany you have to apply for every public manifestation with the official authorities). But facing the political situation and the combative demonstration, the cops were powerless and kept back.
