Pro-RAF Protest in West Berlin

Solidarität mit dem Hungerstreikenden revolutionären RAF-Gefangenen! Tod dem westdeutschen Imperialismus! [Solidarity with the revolutionary RAF prisoners on hunger strike! Death to West German imperialism!].

[Berlin]: Bolsevik Partizan, 1985. Single leaf of yellow paper (21.5 × 30 cm), photocopied typescript to recto and verso (4 pp). Old vertical crease; edges lightly faded; still about very good.

Rare flyer calling for solidarity during the hunger strike of imprisoned members of RAF in 1984-85 (involving, among others, Brigitte Mohnhaupt and Christian Klar). The strike coincided with the first violent acts of the third generation of the RAF in 1984, and the hunger strikes were also used for numerous large-scale public protests against the conditions for political prisoners in West Germany. This flyer was issued by Bolşevik Partizan, a radical splinter group of Turkish communists active in Germany from 1981 to 1987, which also published the eponymous news bulletin. While calling on protesters to rally in solidarity on Berlin's Savignyplaty on Januar 19, 1985, the group also critiques the RAF for neglecting the necessity to combine their actions with a broader uprising of the proletariat.
