Police personnel from France, Croatia and Poland had joined in the biggest security operation ever mounted against (lawful) protesters who were protesting against a train carrying nuclear waste to a depot in an isolated part of Lower Saxony’s country-side.
Helicopters, water canons and police vehicles, including an armoured surveillance truck, accompanied an endless column of anti-riot police mounted on horses and marching down the railway tracks into the dense woods. Tens of thousands of anti riot police clattered along the tracks, their helmets and visors gleaming in the morning sun, and wearing body armour, leg guards and carrying batons.
By Sunday night, those same police officers
were begging the protesters for a respite.
Trapped in black, icy woods without supplies or reinforcements able to reach them because of blockades by a mobile fleet of farmer’s tractors, the exhausted and hungry police officers requested negotiations with the protesters.
A water cannon truck was blocked by tractors, and yet the police still had to clear 5000 people lying on the railway track at Harlingen in pitch darkness. The largest ever police operation had descended into chaos and confusion in the autumn woods of Lower Saxony, defeated by the courage and determination of peaceful protestors who marched for miles through woods to find places to lie down on the tracks and to scoop out gravel to delay the progress of the “the train from hell.”
“Violent” group of protest nappers
The police union head Reiner Wendt gave vent to the general frustration when he issued a press statement via the DPA news agency last night saying the police had reached exhaustion point and needed a break. Behind the scenes, a battle seemed to be raging between the police chiefs, tucked up in their warm headquarters urging more action, and the exhausted officers on the ground. The police on the ground won out.
The Castor train ~ called a “Chernobyl on wheels” because it was carrying 133 tonnes of highly radioactive waste to an unsafe depot ~ was stopped in the middle of the countryside and Nato barbed wire was placed around it. Lit by floodlights and guarded by a handful of police, the most dangerous train on the planet was forced to a halt after a 63 hour journey across France and Germany.
The Berlin government can no longer rely on the discredited mainstream media to control the way people see issues.
Too many people recognize it as a tool of propaganda.
The government now needs to resort to brute force to bludgeon through decisions that enrich corporations and banks and impoverish everyone else. But the police forces at its disposal are simply not enough, given the scale of the protests now gripping Germany.
By morning, only 1,500 police reinforcements could be mustered from the entire territory to deal with road blockades by thousands of protestors aiming to delay the transport of the nuclear waste on the last leg of its journey.
A leading figure in a German police union Bernard Witthaut today even lashed out at the government for trying to drive through unpopular policies using the police.
“Whether in Stuttgart or in Wendland today my colleagues are simply not getting out of their anti riot gear because of the wrong decisions by the government,” he said.
Many police officers also expressed sympathy with the protesters’ aims.
The question now is: how long can the use of police to bludgeon protesters continue when the protests are reaching this scale? How long can Germany be governed by a semi authoritarian regime using brute force when the force at its disposal is so small?
The German army cannot be deployed on this kind of mission without sparking even more outrage. A false flag terrorist operation will hardly wash when the people are so fed up with the government lies and the media lies.
EU soldiers will find it hard to deal with the Germans. The German and EU secret police cannot infiltrate all protestors’ organizations when there are simply so many.
The German people are on the march.
As in Stuttgart, the police used savage force against peaceful demonstrators reinforcing the impression of a government out of control and refusing to respect the basic democratic right of people to hold protests without being beaten to a pulp. Videos of the Castor transport on Sunday show police beating people with their truncheons, punching them and throwing them to the ground. Police also used tear gas, pepper spray and water cannon.
The CDU/CSU/FDP government has already hit record lows in the polls and after Sunday’s savage police operation against peaceful protestors, support for them is sure to plummet further.
The feudal lords
without a feudal army to push through their
agenda of robbery, are facing the end of the road now that their media propaganda
apparatus based on the Springer and Bertelsmann empire is falling apart and their strategy of divide and rule
through a FALSE left/right political point of view is no longer working.
“DO YOU HEAR THAT, NORTH AMERICANS OF CANADA AND THE US? READ THAT ABOVE PARAGRAPH ONE MORE TIME…. REMEMBER “FALSE LEFT/RIGHT PARADIGM”! THE GERMANS HAVE FIGURED OUT WHAT WE HAVE BEEN TELLING YOU FOR YEARS!”
