"get Up? I'm out,“ writes Florian Kirner is on Facebook. The singer-songwriter and comedian, also known as "Prinz Chaos II.", was one of those supported by Oskar Lafontaine and Sahra wagenknecht-initiated collection of movement from the first hour. But his Name has disappeared since the weekend of the Homepage of the organization. Kirner stated: "it was getting a annoying and in many Parts of repulsive political experience."
And Kirner is far from the only one at the Lafontaine-Wagenknecht-project is in despair. Other notable supporters of the Initiative to give, after Wagenknecht himself had announced last weekend, surprisingly their withdrawal from the leadership of the movement, even prior to the announcement, in the autumn, not again as a Left party Chairman to run.
the founder of put down the work of the Board
it also has a joint statement by eleven of the activists who were involved previously in the management Board and the working Committee of the "Stand up". You write: "anyone Who wants to overcome divisions and many different forces collect, but can also collect. This claim does not Stand up properly.“ In allusion to wagenknecht and her husband, the Ex-Left-Chairman Lafontaine, it means the founders and initiators were shown to be woefully unprepared for the organizational, political, financial, and personal political problems, which have to cope with such a rapidly growing movement, especially in the beginning.
in summary: "Thus, the Federal level of Stand up is failed at the first attempt." Although there are a number of dedicated working groups but to the requirements of the Federal level are not more likely to hope the. The first, in January, appointed a provisional Board of Directors of the organization laid down his work.
Under the Declaration, among other things, the Alt Greens, Antje Vollmer, and Ludger Volmer, the historian Peter Brandt, André Brie from the Rosa Luxemburg Foundation, from the SPD leaked the Bundestag, Marco Bülow, and the writer Ingo Schulze.
The parting words of Kirner are significantly clearer. "Devastating bad" was his experience with the project. It had been a short Phase in the "Stand up" had the potential to be a real mass organization. Atrophied but the Initiative was built to an "extended Team-Sahra Newsletter", effective "on the Sand of political fraud". A "stifling bureaucracy" had been imported from the Left in the movement.
"auxiliary troops for the party's internal faction fight"
Kirn writes, in allusion to the intra-party conflicts in the Left: "It was never about a movement, as a movement, but only about what helps us' in the Left." Wagenknecht and also the Deputy group head would have to get Up Dagdelen, Sevim, therefore, via "" "auxiliary troops for the internal party group organized to fight", says Kirner.
also Used resources of the group were in favour, apparently, but - even if the Car Knecht's Co-chief Dietmar Bartsch was denied. Kirn writes, the control over "the decisive means of power", especially over the more than 160,000 E-Mail addresses, had been centralized in a small number of people, "which is usually close to the offices of Sevim Dagdelen, and Sahra wagenknecht, connected or there are or have been employed".
About Wagenknecht Kirner says: "in terms of Sahra, is unclear to me the extent to which it has all of these machinations in your immediate environment is clear, whether you supported that, just run, don't you want to show or hide. I thought it was largely overwhelmed.“ Personally, she was "extremely nice, but in all this madness she seemed to be completely lost".
Wagenknecht: "get Up" definitely not dead
Wagenknecht self does not want to write off your project. For you, it is still trying to get out of the political cul-de-SAC to break out of the left camp in Germany from your point of view.
While the Car met Knecht's former comrades-in-arms in the "Up"movement on Thursday evening in Berlin for a crisis meeting, advertised in a public appearance at the Hamburger factory in front of several hundred supporters for the idea. Both the SPD and the Left would benefit from a "strong left", she explained. And that "Stand up" for those voters to reach, the "out of sheer rage", the AfD.More about

That you, too, long associated Enjoyed how the Ex-Chairman Klaus Ernst view the movement as a failure, take the left lace woman indifferent to the knowledge. "Get up" is "certainly not" dead, assured Wagenknecht in the "mirror"Interview, the movement will now be designed by "thousands of grassroots activists". She does not deny, however, that the great success had it: "Because the parties have walled in. My mistake was that I thought it was easier to bring the Malcontents even on the street.“
