Tachanka/MFPL member Linksunten banned by German Government

German government officials today raided locations related to the Linksunten Indymedia Center, a joint member of Tachanka! and May First/People Link, officially banning the organization and forcing the organization’s website off-line.

The government is accusing Linksunten, one of the German left’s most popular and prominent media resource, of illegally “sowing hate.”

This move is the most serious government attack on Linksunten and among the most serious on a member in our history.

The attack comes just 7 weeks after anti-G8 protests in Hamburg, after which German politicians promised to crack down on “dangerous” dissenters.
