encampment on Dec. 31th 2011

The first big protest manifestation in Frankfurt was organized by Attac for the big international Occupy/Indignados protest day Oct. 15th 2011, but a group named "Occupy Frankfurt" took also part as co-organizer. This group took over the initiative for many further protest demonstrations since they built a "Yes we camp"-camp immediately after the Oct. 15th protest march. And this camp in front of the European Central Bank (the €uro FED!) persisted more than nine months. Then it was evicted like the other camps in Germany, ie in Berlin. The Occupy Frankfurt group became the most German of all since it decided soon to found a registered association, an "eingetragener Verein"=e.V. , the typical German type of private organization. A specialty of the camp are its "folks' university" seminars about several topics.
