We want to enlarge and renew the kitchen of the meadow. For this we would like to lay stone slabs on the floor. Have you got something suitable, which you do not need any longer, then we would be very pleased if you would drop it off. Many thanks!
Yesterday a person from the Forest occupation was arrested in Cologne because s-he had allegedly stolen goods in a supermarket. Value: a few euros. Today s-he was brought before the judge, and now remains in pre-trial detention.
Shoplifting is a political action. That people can be put in jail because of such an invalidity is an expression of targeted repression against the occupation!
You can find detailed information on the arrest and on two other incidents of the last few days in an article at abcrhineland.blackblogs.org (German)
We received this email:
Dear friends of the Hambach Forest!
This Saturday we want to share a Freebirds27 concert in the Hambach Forest for and with you and at your place.
The wonderful TS Steel from the United States comes along and we share some fellowship and strengthening.
It may be many people that it will attract from outside.
We want to arrive already in the afternoon. Maybe there will be a warming fire. 🙂
We are looking forward to it and you are more than welcome to invite others 🙂
This we found in our mailbox:
From Dortmund we send a sign of solidarity to the prisoners of the Hambach Forest! We agree with the slogan “Prisons are no solution but a part of the problem”. Fan the flames of solidarity in all cities, do not forget the prisoners… until all are free!
News, the last ones on top
Occupation on the Cologne Cathedral
10:00 The people who were arrested in Düren yesterday, now are all free again. They were detained for dumpster diving (!) for almost 24 hours!
8:00 Since this morning there is a new occupation in the grubbing-up area, which is called “Polar Express”.
13:00 Since noon today 3 persons are detained at the police station of Düren. They were arrested in Düren, the exact circumstances are still unclear.
The police did not get any fingerprints from the cathedral action group. So also not their identities.
Video of the police operation (at min. 3:10 you can see the flyer that has been handed out to the people on the ground)
