“After the recent, massiv attacs by RWE and the police against the anti-brown-coal-resistance in the hambach forest we are now again going on to the offensive.
This night we blockaded the hambach railway. [Ticker: http://hambachforest.blogsport.de/2016/12/12/ticker-blockade-of-the-hambach-railway/]
The last weeks were characterized by police operations with eviction tanks and water guns to protect the clearing works in the occupied hambach forest. At the same time there have been massiv repressions against activists and supporters.
The operations reached its peak with the arrest of Siao, Hodei and Maya. The three are now in the women´s prison in Köln- Ossendorf. In the media it has been given the impression that some of our as „violent“ declared forms of actions are the problem.
The media forgets in that case that RWE constantly goes on with the destruction of our planet.
The problem is not the activism but the brown coal, which is deeply connected with our capitalistic system. With our blockade of the connection between the coal mine and the power plant we want to show RWE that we aren´t paralyzed and that we transform our sorrow over our compas in prison into anger and action!
Freedom for Maya, Siao, Hodei!
The problem is the brown coal!
Show your solidarity with the prisoners, write letters & do actions.

5:13 Policeinformation (dont trust the Police): „The Policeaction goes on, if the people are arrested they goes to Aachen“ (but now they are in the Lock On)
11:30 Please support the People! Come to the Policestation in Aachen! Its very important that they see some nice People after the sometimes dramatic experiences with Policeviolence !
13:15 The Action has been very successfull. The Police said that the train was blocked until 10am.
16:00 UPDATE: they will face a magistrate tomorrow (13.12.2016) in Düren.
They are until tomorrow in custody.
We want to congratulate our comr@des at Standing Rock to their Victory against the DAPL-project!
WaterDefenders you give us courage and hope to continue our fight!
We share the worries that after the change of presidents the construction stop will be removed. We want to appeal to all to get rid of their stocks of destructive technologies like fracking, nuclear & coal power. And to call all the others which dont have such stucks to make more pressure to the stuckholders. In this area we just know that deutsche bank is stuckholder of the pipeline-project DAPL.
Dont let them allay your suspiciousness! Never surrender! No Compromise!
#NoDAPL! #StandingRock #StopPoliceBrutality!
“Who could feel how beatiful it was before, feels also how unmeasureable the lost is.”
At the former trashpit, on the south-western edge of the clearcut, before and after the cutting. More photos are coming later!
This year the first action advent calender started, the idea is: up to Christmas every day some people are going to surprise us all with some action against the clearcut of Hambach Forest. The actions will be published on wortkulturen.de/category/aktionsadventskalender/ (just in German) where are always more pictures than on this blog. If you want to take responsibility to take action for a specific date get in contact with them: 01577/6655450
Below you find an English translation of some of these actions.

uns schmeichelt nur der Wind.
Wir haben dennoch Kronen,
die schöner als eure sind.”

just the wind is flattering us.
Nevertheless we have crowns,
which are nicer than yours.”

On December 3rd, one more Person was arrested and is now in Prison on remand.
Since December 1st there are two more activists from Hambach Forest in custody jail.
According to the police, both have been at a treehouse close to the entrance of the forest, when firework was set off towards police officers. Noone got hurt. They are accused of causing an explosion and aggravated assault. Custody jail ist justified by danger of absconding, because both have their residence outside of Germany.
Thuersday noon they had their arraignment in Kerpen and were then brought to the women’s prison in Cologne Ossendorf.
Write letters! Be aware that each single letter is getting checked and controlled by the authorities. Hodei and Siao speak Spanish and English. Add stamps, photos, pictures, leaves, sticker, glitter and other stuff, which brings a smile to the face of our compas and angers the censor. more…
