(en) die plattform: Experience report from the danger area Möllerbrücke 20. September 2021 (ca, de, it, fr, pt)[machine translation]

Date Mon, 27 Sep 2021 08:49:31 +0300

The following report was sent to us about the police operation on the Möllerbrücke in the night from Friday to Saturday: ---- On Saturday evening around one o'clock, our heroes in uniform had to do everything they can to protect law and order in Dortmund. This time the crime scene was the Möllerbrücke in Dortmund, where about 150 wanted to end their well-deserved Friday evening. It started when two firecrackers were detonated on the bridge. The heroic police had to rush up for the first time to ensure safety. After the cops had expertly calculated the potential risk by driving a patrol car and two tubs slowly past ten times, a first attempt at contact was made. This was stopped at short notice after a bottle flew near the cops. It was evacuated quickly and the reverse gear was engaged. Another bottle flew and burst on the bull's tub as a farewell. About an hour later, a fully helmeted - equipped with clubs and pepper spray - a hundred, including dogs without a muzzle, was summoned to face the danger. These maybe 70 cops then stormed the bridge quite unannounced after they had previously observed the danger about 30 meters away for almost 15 minutes. Everything that hadn't come down from the bridge fast enough was immediately pounded and bludgeoned away. It was advanced quite quickly. The one or two bottles that flew in response to the cops ensured that a few more young people who had done nothing except celebrating on the Möllerbrücke got pepper spray sprayed in their eyes at close range. In places already several meters behind the Möllerbrücke, the actual high-risk area that the heroes should secure. The crowd was finally driven around 200 meters behind the Möllerbrücke. Of course there was also the usual banter, for example the cops shining their flashlights in cell phones that were filming to prevent the filming.

What we then have to say after this experience report: After the transshipment point at the port, a public place where many people met, has already been turned into an inaccessible construction site, the Möllerbrücke should be the next place to the evening and non-commercial Hanging out gradually becomes impossible and "pacified". It remains unclear where all the people who cannot or do not want to afford the expensive gastronomy should go. And the city shows once again that it prefers to deal with this lack of clarity and the justified frustration that regularly erupts on the streets of our city with the violence of helmeted police officers rather than with real solutions. Meanwhile, our demands remain clear: We don't need pacified and fully commercialized neighborhoods, in which there are only offers for high earners. We reject the further militarization - especially of the poor neighborhoods - of our city. We need a city that we design from below, out of our neighborhoods. We need well-networked neighborhood structures that can offer an alternative to state violence.

For a city for everyone!
