‘yes, the government of the city of Frankfurt plans to    ban BLOCKUPY:


But before you even think about cancelling your travel    plans, please note that this decision is still being heavily    disputed.

Previous attempts by authorities in Germany to prohibit these kinds of protests have never held (completely) in court.

Preparations for the protests are proceeding in full gear. Here are some of the newest mobilisation clips:

Sign a petition to demand withdrawal of the ban here: Please sign – and please distribute this request to friends and comrades all over the world!

All legal means will be pursed in order to waive the ban, and under    the constitution’s right of assembly chances are quite good to be    successful. And even if not, our comrade Christoph Kleine from    Interventionistische Linke (IL) publicly stated that ten thousands    of people would be coming anyway, so a ban wouldn’t be enforceable    at all.

At the moment, the rightists’ attempts to criminalize the BLOCKUPY    days actually act as a major mobilization campaign – so public    attention and support keep rising… :)

Here’s a short news article on this in English:
