19:36 local time, that did not last long. Cops no longer allow picnics on the streets without “an explanation”. via

19:20 local time; Caro Sturzflug@sturzflug –While residents of the rest of the area are sharing their meal w/ police, police denies food supply to refugees in school via

Residents have also organised concerts to block the space for police storming the school, cops have not attacked it yet, but probably they will come to ask them to explain why they listen to music, too. Some pupils who were attacked with batons and pepper spray by cops this morning during their solidarity demonstration with the refugees are also here. pic via

Cops are inflicting more violence, while state officials are in the school to “negotiate” with the refugee; probably not to jump but to let themselves arrested. After 2 and a half years, refugees have come to the point of no return.

TR local time 18:52 — 15 people kettled for city hall Xberg. 1 Person broken nose. 1 detention. Cops want id’s people refuse.

Residents have sent local decision makers another letter, they inform them that even if their names are not on the order to evict the school they are responsible for what is going to happen: “A violent eviction will mean the death of our friends”, read it all here, via @peaceofsudan

People are asking police to refuse obeying orders, even the law gives them that possibility; they are shouting at them to refuse orders if they have a conscience. pics via
More and more residents have started to organize picnics on the streets, some sort of dinner-out human barricades.
Cops can’t deal with such imagination and creativity. One cop, behaving like a human, joined them.

Earlier, police attacked 2,000 the pupils, students and professors who tried to reach the school.
Refugees also participated at the demonstration and declared that the battle is not finished until Europe does not change its refugee policy and treatment of the people who flee their homes out of necessity.
A class of 40 pupils crossed over the police fences to get to the school, carrying flags and banners showing their solidarity and chanting: “No human is illegal”. Police attacked the pupils – minors -, with batons and pepper spray.
Pupils, students and professors clashed with police after this, they tore down the cops’ barricades and yelled at them that they are an occupation force in the Kreuzberg district. Several kids and young people were hurt. The pupils have announced to want to stay until the evening in the neighborhood. In the evening there are more concerts of solidarity.

Banner of mom with kid, protesting at the solidarity demo today says, “Helmet off, brains in”

Politicians and police lied yesterday to the people. The school is being forcibly evacuated now.
Careful: police try to detain “alternative looking” people at Wiener. Find other ways to get here (bank/park9)
All shit will break loose if Polizei try evict school now. XBerg/FH Bezirk has lost all touch with reality, or they don’t care.
This is a follow-up of the 7 day and nights standoff at Ohlauer, see how it unfolded here.

13:00 local time, Berlin – refugees are announced they will be evicted.

13:27 – According to @OhlauerInfo the district government gave order to evict #Ohlauer school. They say its confirmed.

13:45 District government denies order to evict. Interior senator says he received order to evict from district at 12:45

13:55 According to @tagesspiegel not district mayor @MonikaHerrmann1 signed the order to evict but coucillor Panhoff signed it. In German, here.

[tl) RT : [1412] confirmes: Panhoff takes all responsibility and has put in eviction
1/2 tweets that the district government asked them to evict and that they are evaluating the situation.
2/2 also tweets that this does not nescessarily means they will evict . The cops are thinking about their next steps

We will fight for you!
We wish and all other people inside the school all the power they need to win this fight! Solidarity!

8 days ago, 40 refugees, refusing abusive deportation, have occupied the roof a school, supported by activists and residents at Kreuzberg district in Berlin. Huge police force of 900, armed with machine-guns, have been deployed to attack them. 6 days later, the police force was double: 1720 cops, brought from 3 other states to Berlin. On the 8th day, schools in Berlin declared strike in solidarity with the refugees and in condemnation of state’s and police violence and brutality against them and residents of Berlin and activists who defended the refugees.

Cops attacked pupils at their solidarity demo: they used batons, pepper spray and dogs against minors.

Eyewitness reported that cops tried to pull people over barriers and punch them in their face.

Yesterday, cops said they would leave the school area, after residents broke down their banzone around the school and took it to the streets to evict them from their district. After the demo cops issued an ultimatum to state officials to give them the order to attack the refugee school. Residents have demanded the state to allow 70 refugees squat the school.
