Update Oct. 2 : Jus, who has been in custody since June 26th, the eviction of the tower barricade, was set free October 2nd.
Update Sept. 10 :
The appeal against detention was rejected… Jus has to stay in prison. The court hearing is now scheduled for 2 October. Because of the appeal against detention his lawyer will now go to the District Court in Cologne. He calls the processing times and the long waits unbearable.

6 weeks ago our comrade Jus got taken from us at the eviction of Remi’s Tower, a huge barricade build in honour of Rémi Fraisse, who got killed by the freakin cops.
The first 3 weeks Jus was on hunger strike and as a reaction to that the cops told him he did not have a lawyer registered (which he had) and put him in an isolation cell, where it is hard to sleep cus they check every 15 minutes if your not dead yet by turning the lights on and off. All the letters he receives now get checked and it takes about 2 to 4 weeks for them to get to him. He is in prison for 6 weeks and was only had two visits. It is extremely difficult to arrange visits, because there has to be a interpreter at all times, and they want audio visual surveillance. Also his phone privileges are restricted to only his lawyer (even though everyone else can call whoever the fuck they want) and even about that they are being assholes.
All of that for allegedly breaking a bulldozer window, he has never touched a single individual. These charges would seldomly result into imprisonment before trial, and almost never result into such extreme measures, unless of course cooperate climate and Eco-extreme energy criminals like RWE are involved.
Now off his hunger strike, and still in fucking isolation, Jus is not permitted to join any group activities since he is considered a ‘violent offender’. He is awaiting trail, they especially kept him for not having a permanent address, even though he has one, they still do not want to let him go. we want our comrade back!
Statement from Jus out of jail:
‘As i sit, work out, and read in my cell, from one side echoes the yell of ‘sieg heil’, and ‘fuck the forest’ and threads of violence, as on the other side half of the wing erupts in ISIS related chants and slogans. A good illustration of how right wing and fundamentalist extremism is silently tolerated and even endorsed by the state, while all who oppose the special interest of capitalist machine of greed and destruction, find them selfs confined and isolated . After regaining my health, following of 22 days of hunger strike, i am planning 3 prison resistance projects and i will keep you all updated.’
We would like to ask everyone to support Jus, in his struggle in jail.
You can do a couple of things:
Jus is free now!
Write him! He really likes to read and can read English and Polish. Books and magazines are not allowed, but a article on a piece of paper, or a chapter of a book is.
Write him about the squat you life in, a workshop you been to, send pictures, make a drawing!
For someone so involved in environmental struggles its really hard to be cut off from news sources that you would normally have access to. So keep him updated of what is going on, to show that people care, and are still fighting the machine.

An interesting comment at the German version of this page:
Kurt Claßen wrote on September 6th 2015:
Based on my current personal level of knowledge of the matter, it is intended to request to withdraw the immunity of the Minister of the Interior in North Rhine-Westphalia, Ralf Jäger who is the highest employer of the police authorities of the Land of NRW and then to lodge a complaint.
Using a large excavator, Interior Minister Ralf Jäger has made attacking the tower of Jus and so condoneed the killing of Jus, which is punishable by law. At the same time was involved in the act, by his own people, Matthias Hartung, CEO of RWE Power AG, who thus also is punishable.
The foregoing review of the stability of the tower by the surveyor of the city of Kerpen, apparently left the instability of the tower out of consideration, which was created by the weight of the concrete pad, to which Jus was chained by himself. Furthermore, it can be assumed that the eviction was not accompanied by a professional translator for juridical Polish, so that any reasonable understanding with Jus was impossible from the outset. This also is under Minister Jäger’s responsibility.
It is further to be assumed that the ban on contact and the solitary confinement of Jus in the first three weeks of his detention is also due to the lack of use of a professional translator for juridical Polish. In that regard, the responsibility of the Minister of Justice, Thomas Kutschaty, must be examined.
Any traces of the case have been eliminated under an extremely heavy load of sand. Previously tracks were been found of an excavator shovel that had deeply about 10-20 cm removed the original surface of the road beneath the tower and only left behind some plastic cups. The subsequent meter thick filling up of the forest path removed irrevocably the last evidence (see Verdunkelung = Suppression of evidence, § 112 Abs. 2 Nr. 3).
An impression of comparable violent excesses of injustice in the Hambach forest with an excavator shows the video from 08/14/2015: Attack with an excavator shovel.
