Opening at 7pm with food, info evening from 8pm.
Joes Garage, Pretoriusstraat 43, Amsterdam (http://www.joesgarage.nl/events/revolutionary-cells)
Tonight the solidarity group of Sonja and Christian is visiting Joe’s Garage and will talk about the trial Sonja and Christian are facing right now in Frankfurt am Main (Germany). Both are detained in Germany since 2011 after 33 years of exile in France. The German state is taking them to court for several actions the left urban guerrilla network Revolutionary Cells has been conducted in 1977 and 1978 in Germany, particularly against German nuclear industry and their support of apartheid South-Africa in developing nuclear weapons, and against the ruthless urban renewal that took place in Heidelberg during that time.
Tonight the solidarity group will give insights into the trial that is taking place in Frankfurt and narrate the militant history of Sonja and Christian. We will talk about ways to show solidarity and speak about their current situation: Sonja locked up in prison and Christian released due to his poor health status. The group will report back from the latest court date that is scheduled for the 9th of April 2013 in Frankfurt. During the evening we will also dive into the militant history of the Revolutionary Cells, their actions and perspectives.
The evening will be in German with English translations. In between short films will be screened.
