Samidoun Deutschland marches in the Liebknecht-Luxemburg-Demo in Berlin

On Sunday, 10 January, Samidoun Deutschland participated in the annual Liebknecht-Luxemburg-Demo in Berlin, Germany, joining thousands of participants marching through the streets of Berlin carrying banners, signs and red flags against imperialism, colonialism and exploitation. The annual march commemorates the lives and struggles of revolutionary leaders Rosa Luxemburg and Karl Liebknecht, assassinated in 1919.

The Samidoun contingent marched with the internationalist block at the demonstration, carrying banners calling for the liberation of Palestinian prisoners, as well as Arab revolutionary political prisoner for Palestine Georges Ibrahim Abdallah, imprisoned in French jails for the past 36 years.

The annual march once again marked the launch of the International Week of Action to free Ahmad Sa’adat and all Palestinian prisoners, from 15 to 23 January 2021. Ahmad Sa’adat, the imprisoned General Secretary of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine, is a leader of the Palestinian prisoners’ movement and the international left.

In a speech delivered at the march, Samidoun Deutschland emphasized its call for the revolutionary forces all over the world to stand by the Palestinian cause and uphold the liberation of Palestine from the river to the sea, expressing support for all revolutionary movements in the world who are fighting for liberation from colonialism, imperialism and reaction.
