Salah Said Palestine Congress Berlin protests arrests

As a Palestinian activist in Berlin, I faced an unjust arrest at a pro-Palestine protest on Kurfürsten Damm last night. This morning, three police officers from the Landeskriminalamt visited my home, citing `potential dangers.' This is the second time the German state has targeted me for my activism. They confirmed they're monitoring my work. This tactic aims to silence pro-Palestine voices by instilling fear. It's a desperate attempt to intimidate us as we raise awareness about the ongoing genocide against Palestinians. Isn't this a threat to democracies and freedom of expression? Germany has a history of silencing justice advocates. Are we regressing? Why do we face oppression and violence for standing in solidarity with Palestinians?



Police In Berlin, Germany, Arrest Pro-Palestinian Demonstrators Camped Outside German Parliament

Police dismantle encampment at Berlin's Free University and more than 100 activists arrested at University of Amsterdam.

Police have broken up a protest by several hundred pro-Palestinian activists who occupied a courtyard at Berlin's Free University, the latest such action by authorities as protests that have roiled campuses in the United States spread across Europe.

The move on Tuesday came after activists had put up about 20 tents and formed a human chain around them to protest against Israel's war on Gaza.

Amsterdam encampment broken up

Earlier, police arrested about 140 activists as they broke up a similar pro-Palestinian encampment at the University of Amsterdam.

Amsterdam police said on social media that their action was "necessary to restore order" after protests turned violent. There were no immediate reports of injuries.

Video from the scene aired by national broadcaster NOS shows police using a mechanical digger to push down barricades and officers with batons and shields moving in, beating some of the protesters and pulling down tents. Protesters had formed barricades from wooden pallets and bicycles, NOS reported.

After clearing the Amsterdam protest by early afternoon Tuesday, police closed off the area by metal fences. Students sat along the banks of a nearby canal.

"The war between Israel and Hamas is having a major impact on individual students and staff," the school said in a statement. "We share the anger and bewilderment over the war, and we understand that there are protests over it. We stress that within the university, dialogue about it is the only answer," it said.
