German HA rally to demand freedom

1,000 members and associates of the Hells Angels from across Germany protested in Berlin last week against the government's ban on displaying the group's colours in public.

Protesters rallied on their motorcycles from Biesdorf in East Berlin towards Berlin's Victory Column. At the Brandenburg Gate HA boss Andre Sommer addressed the protesters, dubbing the ban as a serious attack to their fundamental rights of freedom of their association.
Openness is part of a new hellish strategy for the senior rocker boss. "We have been shuting ourselves off from the public for too long," Sommer says.

According to a law passed by the German Federal Parliament in 2017, the Hells Angels are banned from wearing club colours, nor the 'death head' in public.
