This tuesday we will stir up Buir! At 4 pm Klaus der Geiger (violin songwriter from Cologne) will be playing street music at the station in Buir. He wrote a song about the coal mining by RWE. Let’s have a party over there and show our solidarity against RWE! There will be delicious vegan food for everybody! Hambach Forest stays! The diggers have to leave!
The first clearance works in Hambach Forest have begun. Several hundred meters northwest of the occupation RWE started to remove undergrowth and bushes – preparing the forest for complete removal. These works are being regularly disrupted, diverse tactics are being used successfully. More people are needed to bring the works to a complete halt, so come along and join us! Help saving the forest – NOW is the time!
Security guards taking photos of suspected occupation-members and stealing shared bikes („seizing“ them to hand over to police) has been common practice for a while. In the last few days there were also two physical attacks towards occupants and visitors by members of the security company.
It‘s best to take precautions during your arrival, especially alone or at night. Have a camera ready to take photos or videos, usually this keeps them from trying anything. You can also call us on the forest phone if you want someone to pick you up and accompany you on the dangerous 300m across the bridges.
Don‘t be discouraged from coming, there is an approved vigil space behind the security zone – just don‘t expect any support from public authorities.
