Andreas Baader: On the Geneva Convention

Andreas Baader: On the Geneva Convention June 2nd, 1977 The demand for the application of the Geneva Convention is a necessary vehicle for our politics, because the dead wings, isolation, and stress manipulation are being used to break the group in prison, to prepare for show trials, and to gain information, or more accurately, to gain informants.……… Read the rest

Statement Calling Off the Fourth Hunger Strike

In recent days, all efforts to break the hunger strike of the remaining 100 prisoners through force-feeding—with extreme brutality in the case of Hamburg-Holstenglacis—have failed.

RZ Letter to the RAF Comrades

This letter is addressed to all raf comrades. It is an open letter. We are a section of the Revolutionary Cells (rz). However, many arguments from the undogmatic movement are integrated into this letter, both because we consider these arguments to be correct and because we feel ourselves to be a part of this movement.……… Read the rest
