Days of Solidarity & March 18th-Day of Action
The nationwide ‚Day of Action‘ is since 1996 March 18th. This date has had several meanings in the history of class struggle. The arising proletariat fought on barricades the noblemen and Burgeoise on March 18th in 1848 . The first short take-over of power happened 23 years later on March 18th 1871 through the labouring class, in the ‚Paris Commune‘. Up to the 20’s of this century March 18th was refered to as ‚Day of the Commune‘. Red Aid took, in 1923, the connection with this historical event as an inducement to proclaim this an ‚International day of support for political prisoners‘. Libertad! initiated, in 1996, a day ‚for the freedom of political prisoners and against repression and opression through the state‘, for the first time in years. Since then many different actions and events take place nationwide, which present repression and political prisoners as themes.
In Frankfurt (Main) different groups got together to be more on the spot on March 18th 2013. We’ll take action, not only on the day of action, but also before and after, there will be information events for example to arouse consciousness for the situation of prisoners and for victims of repressive actions, to support them and generally to question the ‚prison society‘ and to advocate their abolition.
