The Hambach Forest Occupation is EVICTED right now!
This is where it is going to start!
Several hundred police arrived this morning, surrounding and shutting down the forest occupation from the eyes of anyone who would like to witness what is actually going on.
Infrastructure, Treehouses, trees, hedges, all getting torn apart piece by piece.
Everything is destroyed by loud, obnoxious machinery orchestrated by megalomaniacs, operated by ignorant people who in the end have nothing to claim for themselves but clinging on to their job.
People getting dragged away, getting brutalized, getting violated.
The police began this morning the eviction of forest occupation!
This morning, 20th of march at 7am, 200 cops stormed the occupied meadow close to the occupied Hambach Forest to search for verifications for actions which reportedly happend during the last year. They took all the Laptops, Mobilephones, Memory cards, private documents (like passport, different kind of cards, letters,…). There were just 5 people on site, they checked their identitys. So rigth now there is no meadow- or forestphone you can call! Replacements will become active soon.
Police neglected to call a lawyer during the operation and as they imediately took all cell phones etc. there was no communication possible for hours. The first supporters recognized what was happening and came close to the ocupation at around 10 am.
At 12am they finnished the chaos.
During some of them were busy on the meadow, a big police unity went to the treehouses with chainsaws. They (again!) cutted all the robes which weren’t pulled up (which is a danger of life!) and left then.
As a reason for this police operation they refered on elucidation of punishable acts which were commited since april 2013 in the surrounding of the coal mine Hambach which is absurd. As well you could search all houses of a city district refering on all criminal acts of the whole city during one year. It is not about eluciadation of punishable acts. It is about harassment of people who afford courage and time for legitimate protest against the destruction of climate and earth.
There’re still very less people over there!
Rebellious regards from meadow and forest!
This April there will be a skill sharing for two weeks on the occupation of the Hambacher Forst/ Hambach Forest. We want to let grow a big diversity of different theoretical and practical workshops, discussions, presentations,actions and so on. Everybody is invited to participate, to bring in own ideas, to share some skills, to offer workshops, to present something or to express her_his displeasure about the destruction of nature and oppression in creative way.
The camp has a emancipatory demand. It shall give us the possibility to share experiences, to connect, to learn together and also from each other and hopefully to come a step closer to a world without dominance: A world in which we take the responsibility for ourselves and our behavior and actions, in which we don’t take orders nobody and in which we can’t command nobody neither, a world in which we live together without any kind of discrimination, in free agreements and mutual aid, trying to self-organize and self-subsist ourselves.
There are already some workshops planned, such as: insulation of walls with adobe, knitting masks, collect wild-growing herbage and different forms of action, for example: samba, action climbing, building tripods, …
If possible please take with you a tent, a sleeping bag, a sleeping pad and wind- and rain-proofed clothes because we have only a limited number of sleeping places. Also it would be nice, if you could contribute with some food (maybe go dumpster-diving some days before). But this is not a must!
See you in April!
Love, solidarity and anarchy!!!
We got an advice to this solidarity aktion:
From Atlanta Indymedia
On the night of February 22nd, we poured a mixture of sand and water into the fuel tanks of two tractors used in the construction of a new Atlanta streetcar. The streetcar is one of many major development projects the city has initiated in the past few years as a part of a general plan to revitalize downtown. We know that this plan only means more police and unaffordable housing.
We offer this small gesture of solidarity to the ZAD, the No TAV movement, and the occupation of the Hambach Forest. We would also like to send strength to those affected by increased surveillance or repression the new developments have brought to Atlanta.
Our action was very simple to perform. It did not take long to plan or to enact and we found all of the materials on the side of the road. We do not believe that an accumulation of “actions” makes a revolution, but we wanted to give encouragment to the current and future participants of revolutionary struggles. Onward, strong hearts!
