Occupied Palestine | فلسطين

PRESSTV | Nov 18, 2012

Hundreds of pro-Palestinian activists have staged a demonstration in Germany to protest against the ongoing Israeli attacks on the Gaza Strip.

The demonstrators took to the streets in the capital Berlin on Sunday to show solidarity with the Palestinians and slam the latest wave of Israeli violence on the besieged enclave.

Claims that “activists have left and homeless have taken over” are a standard Police ruse to disinform the public by portraying activists as something else. Perhaps their are among Police tiers of recognition of activists and levels of activism. Our information from Occupy Frankfurt by phone is that there is a notable homeless presence but the Occupation is by no means exclusively homeless people. There are also activists from Student , Trades and Workers movements onsite.

As with other occupations, there are also numerous organisations which tried to co-opt Occupy Frankfurt whose high profile media spokespeople basked in the sunshine of Occupy publicity but had little to do with maintaining a physical occupation.
