The left-wing campaign “No General Suspicion” protests against the police’s tactics to limit the influence of criminal clans in Berlin. The police’s actions include regular searches of Sisha bars, which are attributed to certain clans, but also the control of cars. The left-wing initiative sees this as “racism” and “sweeping criminalization of people from Neukölln”. For November 12 she calls for a “flash mob” at the corner of the streets Karl-Marx-Straße and Saltykowstraße against “harassment and arbitrariness within the crackdown on Shishabar”. The Left-wing Party Neukölln expressly supports the campaign on its website.”No General Suspicion” and Left-wing Party also oppose media coverage of Arab clans. In its own words, the campaign sees this as “sensationalist coverage” which ” portrays our district as a danger zone”. Ulla Jelpke ( in the photo in the front with the flag ), member of the Bundestag for the Left-wing Party, also recently stressed her solidarity with clans and rhetorically asked at an event in Neukölln co-organised by the Left-wing Party: “We should talk about German family clans. Why is organized crime not accused by the rich and capitalists?At the same event she called the raids against Clan organizations “a dirty campaign against people of Muslim or Arab origin” according to newspaper WELT. The actions of the police, according to the member of parliament, “cannot and must not be tolerated in this way”.In protest against the rapprochement to the Clans, faction leader Thomas Licher had already left the Left-wing Party this summer in the Neukölln district assembly.In protest against the rapprochement to the Clans, faction leader Thomas Licher had already left the Left Party this summer in the Neukölln district assembly. “I consider the solidarity with Arab extended families and defending them against the accusation of ‘gang crime’ to be politically wrong,” said Licher at the time. The behaviour of his comrades “is in no way comprehensible to third parties”.
