The following is a republication of a report by Bündnis gegen imperialistische Aggression (BgiA) and Netzwerk Freiheit für alle politische Gefangenen on two actions organized in Hamburg, Germany, as part of the “action month for the release of Georges Ibrahim Abdullah”. Samidoun Germany participated in these actions:
On 06 and 07 October 2022, different organisations carried out different actions in the framework of the international month of action for the immediate release of Georges Ibrahim Abdallah. For example, the Bündnis gegen imperialistische Aggression (BgiA) from Hamburg organised a manifestation together with Samidoun on Hamburg’s Steindamm, a street where there are many Arab and Turkish shops.
The manifestion was very well received by passers-by and Arab youth from Palestine, Morocco, Algeria and Syria joined the rally. Slogans for the Palestinian liberation struggle and for the release of Georges Ibrahim Abdallah were shouted vigorously. Other political prisoners such as Ahmad Saadat were also addressed in speeches and their release was demanded. Thus, a good contribution to the international month of action could be brought and it is shown that the potential for the anti-imperialist struggle is also big here in the heart of the imperialist beast.
The evening before, the Freedom for All Political Prisoners Network organised an information and discussion event in solidarity with Georges Ibrahim Abdallah. A representative of Samidoun and a representative of Ak Palestine spoke on the topic. Anti-imperialist forces from different organisations and countries came to listen to the speakers and show solidarity with Georges Ibrahim Abdallah. In a lively discussion, all participants affirmed the need to strengthen anti-imperialist work in the FRG again and to develop a common practice.
