No new anti-socialist laws! Defend the SGP against the German secret service!
On November 18, the Sozialistische Gleichheitspartei (Socialist Equality Party, SGP) challenged in a Berlin Administrative Court the decision by the German secret service (Verfassungsschutz) to classify the SGP as a “left-wing extremist” organization. The court issued a ruling based explicitly on the assertion that the SGP’s call “for an egalitarian, democratic and socialist society” violates the German constitution. The far-reaching decision lays the basis for declaring unconstitutional the selling, distribution and reading of Marxist and socialist literature. The SGP will appeal this decision and mobilize opposition to the far-right danger and the attack on socialism.
