Letter from a Berlin activist who planted one cannabis plant at the Netherlands embassy in Vienna after the demonstration on 7 March 2008.
With this and the following e-mails i would like to send u a few pictures of the Vienna drug peace march 2008….
After the demonstration u asked the people to bring one plant to an embassy, so we decided to bring one to the Dutch embassy. After the demonstration was finished we left the place of the UN-building with the uncovered plant in our arms. During our drive with the tram we had lots of nice experiences with the other guests in there. Some people ask us how the strain is called , some others ask for the duration of flowering or if it is a boy or a girl,a few people just ask us if they are allowed to touch it and tourists from Russia and England ask us ,if we have something to sell or where they can get this type of plant?
So what we start to realize was/is , that in this subject it’s not a question that the citizens don’t want this plant or it’s products,it’s just a political will-or a phrase of international contracts! In this night we drove around the city for about 2 hours,because nobody had opened up the door for us in the embassy….We also went with our baby into an italian restaurant and we just put the plant on the table. As the waiter came we thought “maybe he will tell us something about the plant” … but he said just ,”..i hope that its a girl!”
So we had ordered our drinks and he came back with an extra glass of water for the plant- it was very funny for us to see it. By the way, we are German and in Germany we can get in trouble because of a seed. Nevermind!
The next morning we crossed half of the city, with our plant and the letter from encod to reach the embassy again. It was the second time we used the tram and we didn’t had even one bad experience !! Then we arrived to the embassy and we rang there again nobody opened us….so we thought, that they had seen us through the camera and they just didn’t want to open us. But we wanted to leave the plant and the letter so urgent there for the embassador, that we decide to hold the plant and the letter into the camera and after we had showed it we put both down infront of the door. We left the place and we crossed the street, still spying what’s going on there.
So after 5 minutes the security guy came and we ran as fast as we could back to the door, to explain him, what we want him to do with the letter and the plant. He said he’ll just bring it up into the office of the embasssador and when i asked him to take a picture it wasn’t a problem at all!
So I want to thank you for doing your work so steady and i also want to thank u that u decided to put your time, energy, will, hope and actions into this subject of antiprohibition! May better times will come and may the holy plants be free! With shivas help it can happen soon!
