Smoke-Ins and Hash Rebels in West-Berlin

“Zentralrat der umherschweifenden Haschrebellen“ (Central Council of Roaming Hash Rebels) was formed in the spring of 1969, ironically taking its name from a text by Mao Tse-Tung. This group was comprised of young dissents and hippies and was almost exclusively male. Understanding themselves as radical revolutionaries, the hash rebels argued that intoxicating states have a mind-expanding effect and therefore have the potential to make people aware of their disenfranchisement- thus encouraging resistance and being the first step to a revolution.See Story: Claiming Space in West-Berlin
