International Black Block Day Leipzig Saxonia Germany 21.07.2007
Zum ersten Mal seid Monaten bekennt sich C. Worch zu seiner Demo, die laut der Anmeldung am 21.7.2007 in Leipzig stattfinden soll.
Aus dem Rundbrief, den er an fast alle freien und parteilichen Naziwebseiten geschickt hat, wird klar, dass er trotz aller Niederlagen in Leipzig und der Verlegung seiner 1.Mai Demo 2007 immer noch an dem Konzept der „Demos durch Leipzig“ festhält. Mit dem Brief reagierte er auf das Verbot seiner Demo.
Rundbrief von Worch:
On Monday 16 July at 11am, the Municipal Police attacked a protest organised by the APPO (Popular Assembly of Oaxaca) and section 22 of the Teachers' Union. The protesters had attempted to enter the Guelaguetza auditorium in the Cerro del Fortín, where they were hoping to celebrate an 'alternative' Guelaguetza festival.
