<nettime> arrest of Andrej Holm - sign petitions

hi everyone,

for some reason the news of the arrest of Andrej Holm - a researcher at 
the Humboldt University in Berlin who does work on gentrification and 
the housing market in Berlin - has not reached this mailing list yet. He 
has been arrested under par. 129a of the German criminal code law. This 
enables the state to put those in jail - for an extended period - 
without a clear proof of crime, merely on the basis of suspicions that 
the person belongs to a terrrorist organization. In the current case, it 
leads to people - in particular from leftist scenes - having their house 
searched, because in their writings they refer to such 'problematic' 
words as gentrification or precarization.

Please take some time to sign the following petitions:

- The letter from Hartmut Häussermann's et al. 
<http://www.freeandrej.net.ms/> (German only).

- The INURA-letter <http://www.policing-crowds.org/petition.html>
