Berlin Biennale & Occupy Wallstreet action against Deutsche Bank

The crisis of global capitalism requires a global response. We will now act against its leading institutions one by one. Transnational banks are central to this crisis and profit from the suffering of the people everywhere. Our first target will be Deutsche Bank.Deutsche Bank is active in over 70 countries in the world, creating complex local crisis in various regions. For example, Deutsche Bank is speculating on the lives of people in Southen Europe, using economic and political mechanisms to ensure the payment of odious debts. In the United States, Deutsche Bank is known as the “foreclosure king” for driving millions of people from their homes.

We need a new global tactic. Like Deutsche Bank, the movements are everywhere, we are connected, and now we can act in coordinated ways, targeting socioeconomic injustices through the specific companies that spread them; from Berlin to Cairo, to Madrid to Mexico City to New York to New Dehli. We will respond to situations in their local complexity and global commonality and share these actions and tactics on a platform for everyone to see.

We are people from many regions of the global Occupy/15M movements who met in Berlin within the seventh Berlin Biennial. This human zoo, financed by the German Government, objectifies and de-politicizes activists who have been exhibited in a room where they have their meetings, discussions, and sleep. However, as people who believe in action, we do not see this situation as a static one. It embodies the problematic nature of many contermporary neoliberal spaces which the Occupy/15M must confront.

Our first targets are worldwide Deutsche Bank locations on Wednesday June 13. We will be at Deutche Bank Berlin on Unter de Linden. We call on all movements to do creative actions at their Deutsche Bank and upload documentation to the N-1 network under “International Targets: Round One” The backup location is on Facebook under the same name.

Let’s build on the global actions of the past and keep connecting a cooperative mass resistance for the future.

About author
We are just like you, citizens of the world fed up with the critical situation and we believe a real change can be achieved through the coordination of non violent actions and self-managed alternatives around the world. There must be a better way of dealing with the survival and enjoyment of our life, we believe in consensus and in non-hierarchical organization. We believe that another world is possible, where nobody has to die of hunger while others throw food away. We don’t have flags and we fight the borders crossing them. We try to be in the best place at the good moment, from Brussels to Lisbon, from Madrid to Athens, reporting but also acting. We come from activist groups, hacking platforms or post capitalist projects and we participated a lot in the Spanish revolution since the beginning. We leave our respective assemblies for this international project of global coordination but we keep in touch, sending back information and visiting regularly. We are open to integrate new people to our project or to help the creation of new teams. More information about our way to work in the protocol.
