She was in a neighbourhood in southeast Berlin where a neonazi demonstration was taking place.
Since five months she managed successfully to avoid her imprisonment, which should have happened already on the 2nd of august. She will have now to spend her next 14 months behind the bars and therefore she absolutely need all our support from outside the walls.
After one and half week spent in the prison of Lichtenberg, Andrea has been transferred by surprise on the 11th to the prison of Pankow. Through this she lost a visit she had already applied for and now she had to apply again for all the usual things like packets, sport, visit..
A bit of history
On the 12.07 the Münich´s local court sentenced her to 4 months without probation.She had a pepperspray on her. Even though on that day there was none lefty demonstration taking place,and therefore it was legal to carry a pepperspray, the court said that on that day a "state of exception" had been declared. Of course they forgot to inform the rest of the population about this.
Following this sentence, she faced also the loss of a precedent probation of three months,back then being caught with some eggs full of pepper during an antifascist action on 1st of May 2005, in Berlin.
During a process on 31st of July, under which several accusations against her got regrouped,she has been sentenced to five months more. She has been accused in participating within an action of the "Überflussigen" (an autonomous group active mainly on the theme of precarity) against the racist immigration office in Berlin-Lichtenberg, in October 2006, for a blockade attempt against a neonazi march in august 2006, for masking up during the protests against a neonazi demonstration towards the prison of Tegel in solidarity with Michael Regner "Lunikoff" (singer of a famous neonazi band,serving a couple fo years in that prison), in October 2006.
On top of this come two months without probation following a squatting action in the Liebigstrasse, Berlin-Friedrichshain.
These sentences are clearly political ones, meaning that an enganged and unwilling to bow activist has been sent down for quite sometime.
