We will not be intimidated by German imperialism!
After the right-wing German-Bavarian repression apparatus stormed the Open Anti-Fascist Meeting in Augsburg and tried to intimidate the young anti-fascists, they have made another vile manoeuvre against anti-fascists and revolutionaries.
The Assyrian comrade Sami Grigo Baydar, representative of the Suryoye People’s of the Suryoye People’s Council in Germany and a theologian of the Syrian Orthodox Church of Antioch, was the subject of a repression operation in the style of the COINTELPRO-programme, which was formerly designed by the US-Anglo-American secret service FBI in order to isolate, disintegrate or, as in the well-known case of the chairman Fred Hampton, execute black revolutionaries in the USA, such as the BLACK PANTHER PARTY, with the aim of breaking up the political organisation.
On Orthodox Good Friday (14.04.2023), Sami’s private flat and the kiosk he ran in Augsburg were stormed and searched by state security and riot police.
The flimsy, contrived claim of the right-wing Bavarian repressive authorities was that Sami had allegedly sold drugs to a 13-year-old in the kiosk he ran.
Sami comes from a political movement that is particularly concerned with the degeneration of youth through drugs in the imperialist reality and develops programmes for self-help and rehabilitation. It is an attempt to denounce him and his kiosk in the immediate neighbourhood.
What Sami really sells in his kiosk are leftist and revolutionary magazines. It is also not the first time that Sami has been visited by representatives of the imperialist state security. For example, two officials (one of Turkish origin and one of German origin) were waiting for him in his kiosk making strange insinuations and asking suggestive questions with the clear aim of intimidating him.
In this context, we also see death threats against Sami, which were signed JITEM on Instagram. JITEM can be named as a paramilitary, illegal fascist organisation whose work at the time was to “disappear”, torture and massacre opposition members across Anatolia. It is therefore also part of the Deep State. Next, Sami found slashed car tyres.
Now the repression against comrade Sami has reached a new level:
(As we can easily see even before the conclusion of the solidarity statement you have here in front of you, the police again stormed his shop and confiscated goods from the kiosk, which now threatens his livelihood).
The struggle for international friendship and peace cannot be intimidated, it is a duty!
The anti-imperialist struggle is legitimate and necessary!
Sami is not alone, we stand by his side as friends and comrades !
Watch out for further announcements of practical solidarity and do it, only in collective unity we can win, our history has shown it, we have won and we will win, because we are in the right !
