- "Welcome to jail" - In October and November 2000 we held protests
against compulsory schooling. On several school mornings we stood in

similarity of school to prison.
- Refusal of chemistry lessons
As a protest against compulsory school and compulsory learning one of
our members, Benjamin Kiesewetter, refused to go to chemistry lessons
for seven months in 1996 (10th/11th grade).
