Legal Team

Note: We now have a Legal Updates page here

The G8 legal team now have a reworked web-presence for the 2007 G8 at Heiligendamm, Germany (also known as Ermittlungsausschuss, or EA for short, in German):

(Until they manage to update the domain-entry there will be a redirection to the adress which has the same content)

Because anti-repression-work is very expensive the legal team are also appealing for funds. Their account details are as follows:

Schwarz-Rote-Hilfe M√ľnster e.V.
Account-Nr.: 282 052 468
BLZ: 440 100 46
Postbank Dortmund
Reason for payment: Gipfel-EA 2007
IBAN: DE02 4401 0046 0282 0524 68

The telephone number of the Legal Team during the G8 summit is:

0049 - (0)3820 - 4768111

We will be available at this number from the 28th of May onwards. People are encouraged to call us whenever they get into conflict with police forces or witness police assaults or arrests. We will then try to take care of the persons concerned.

For people taken into custody by the police, the following information should be held ready whenever possible, so we can ask for it on the phone:

  • forename and surname
  • date of birth (or approximated age, if unknown)
  • hometown
  • nationality
  • the reason–as said by the police!–why the person has been taken into custody

In no case do want want to hear any description of what really happened! Our phones will likely be wiretapped around the clock!

People that are affected by repression either directly or indirectly and have questions may come to our daily consultation-hour at the camp in Reddelich from 7 to 9 pm. The consultation-hour is also the right time and place to write and hand over notes about what has been experienced and seen. (Writing the notes on site will make sure that they will not get into the wrong hands. Also, this way, people may ask questions about how to write notes in a way that they are most helpful to us.)

A few general hints on what to think about when planning for demonstrations or actions may be found on our website and soon also in printed form at various places around Heiligendamm.
