Berlin Courts' Logic Supply Dangerously Low

An interview with Lars Röhm about the fine against the FAU Berlin

In April, the FAU Berlin was charged 200 Euros for referring to itself as a union in its statutes. In December 2009, an injunction had been issued forcing them to remove the word union from all their publications. However the banned word remained in the statutes until mid-March as a change there would have taken several months. The management of the Babylon Mitte Cinema filed for the charges in February 2010. The injunction was also filed for by the same cinema's management during a labor dispute with its employees, which the FAU Berlin was supporting. This is the first time that a workers' association has been banned from calling itself a union in Germany.

Before the Ban

A history of the Babylon conflict before the de-facto ban of the FAU Berlin

The Babylon cinema located in Berlin's Mitte district can look back at over 80 years of cinematic tradition. Its location in a historically preserved building and its art-house program give it the best chances for success in a sophisticated city like Berlin. Unfortunately this hasn't translated into good working conditions. With little outlook for improvement, the employees decided to take matters into their own hands.
