May First German member faces crack-down

For Immediate Release Contact: Alfredo Lopez alfredo@mayfirst.org The German government has effectively outlawed the linksunten Indymedia Center, a joint member of Tachanka! and May First/People Link, in the most serious police state action we have seen in recent years. The attack began two weeks ago with raids (involving of money and equipment) at autonomous KTS Center (which the government is alleging is a linksunten “base”) and several private homes to seize equipment and money belonging to alleged linksunten members.

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.

Statement on Justice Department Demands on Dreamhost

On August 15, 2017, May First/People Link issued the following statement: The demand by the U.S. Department of Justice on Dreamhost, the Internet service provider, represents an outrageous escalation in the government’s recent history of violation of citizens’ rights and should draw a militant and resolute response of resistance. Dreamhost announced this week that the Justice Department is demanding that it turn over the IP addresses of all visitors to a website – http://www.disruptj20.org/ -- used to organize protests at Donald Trump’s Presidential inauguration.

May First/People Link offers two different webmail programs. You will always see the same email regarless of which program you use. Roundcube has a friendly and simple iterface, making it the easier of the two programs to use.
