442 Walk in the Forest this Sunday

The monthly walk in the Hambach Forest has not only grown exponentially in size over last couple of years it has also became a cultural and political phenomena reflecting general support for Hambi Forest Activist and phasing out dirty coal as an energy source. For many in the Hambi it is great to have several hundred people show up in the forest who are not cops and who instead of supporting Toxic RWE and arresting us, instead bring us food, warm clothing and offer their general warm support. Even in this cold weather so many came bringing the total of people who have attended the forest walk to close to 12 thousand. This time with the youngest visitor being 4 months old, the oldes 81 and the people who came from furtherest being visitors from Colombia and Peru. more…

Starting a Prison Riot: Hambi Prison Story from Texas

Starting a Jail Riot.

Before dropping out completely out of capitalist work and profit driven world and fully realizing how corrupt and full of lies it was I would engage in temporary work during my travels. It was at a gig like that helping at upholstery shop in a small west Texas town located right on the border with Mexico, that I discovered how fucked small town “justice” can be. The shop was a car-lot full of dead and old cars, some with bullet hole riddled windows with a small shack in a middle, for two weeks I lived and worked in that shack and had access to one of the old cars to get around. And as I drove in that old clunker to get a shower, pick up my wages for one a half weeks from my employer in the middle of town I was cut off by a police car the cop ran out of the his car with a gun gun in his hand which he pointed it in my face and arrested me for stealing a car I was driving. No problem, I thought, the guy I was working for would show up and straighten it out. more…

Communique from Bure Owls about yesterday’s Police Action


As wave of repression hits our comrades in France. A call of Solidarity to You goes out of Hambach Forest Struggle and a reminder to all of previously announced re-occupation of the Lujuc Wood scheduled March 3rd and 4th.  See you there!!

Bure, 22.02.18 This morning at 6:15am the eviction of the Lejuc wood (Bois Lejuc) started with 500 riot cops, reinforced/orchestrated by a communication campaign from the home secretary (ministre de l’interieur), the news channels diffusing shock images of military vehicles gathered next to the Lejuc wood, cabins being invaded, cops in balaclavas armed with chainsaws and cameras… more…

Hambi 4 in Prison for a Month now!

Today the Hambi4 Have been in jail for a month. For a whole month for resisting forest and climate destroying bullshit of RWE and NRW Police by refusing to identify themselves. Refusing to identify themselves to among other reasons not make it so easy to keep issuing orders to stay away from the Hambach Forest and RWE properties that so often been given to Hambi, Climate Camp and Ende Gelände people to make it more difficult for them to continue our resistance. In Germany so far it was only possible to be detained for 48 hours without being identified with no charges being filed. This has always been the case in the past, this time however after starting a PR shitstorm for months threatening to cut roads into the forest if a single rock flies the cops still ended up arresting a record number of people just for not getting out of their way. more…

Forest Walk This Sunday

A monthly Forest Walk with Michael Sobel will take place this Sunday.  Its another chance to see many of the occupied barrios, talk to and listen to some of the Hambacher Forest activists.  Take advantage of coming to bring any additional supplies for the occupation that you might no longer need.

What makes this walk different is that there will be more press.  New York Times and National Geographic will be present.  Regardless of largely positive press from national and international media it is good to remain critical of mainstream news outlets and keep convey our message without being distracted by small stuff, like how we poop in the trees.  That is why if there is any banners that those coming will have access to, please bring them.  Banners at Sunday walk have allways been important regardless of the presence of the media.  There will be lunch, info and music.  Come by yourself or bring friends and family.  Please remember that as the forest is about to dry up and spring nears, combined with mass propaganda campaign going against Hambi, that each walk could be the last chance to see and document Hambacher Forest Occupation in its present shape.  That is why the visitors and supporters are so crucial in showing that most of German public is fully behind the immediate Coal Exit and that many people do not belive disinformation about Hambi that regularly especially before police action appears in some of the local press owned and coopted by fossil fools industry and RWE.

Thanks everybody even if you could visit only once in the past and do make plans to do again.

Our Comrades in Eco Struggles World-Wide Killed at 4 a week


The rates of ecological activists, indigenous people, and wildlife rangers and protectors who have been killed in 2017 continued to increase to now 4 a week.  This is about four fold increase since this statistic has been collected in 2002.

It might not be a surprise for those familiar with #RWE extensive repressive apparatus: its over four private security companies with international mercenary groups hired to spy on protesters and with massive unquestionable police protection for their eco and climate destructive operations, it might not be a surprise for those familiar with the fact that extractionists will stop at absolutely nothing to make another euro, dollar or yen that the largest single group of these documented victims, 36 all together were killed by mining interests. Here in Rhineland, RWE just send thousands of cops and has our activists locked up for months on bullshit charges but in places like Siberia, and Columbia where it also mining people described in this study are being killed. more…

Shit Crazed Bloodsucking Cockroaches

Hambi Prison Story from Nicaragua


Hitchhiking down across Central America to Panama seemed easy with no documents or id.  Turning back and heading  back North previously hidden migration reality quickly became apparent: all the borders crossed from Arizona to Panama City were one directional as far as nobody seeming to care for documents when people were heading from the Rich North to the Poor South.  The global repressive immigration policies were quickly obvious when trying to get back north from the south though.  US and UN has been for decades paying each country and regime in a region a sum for each illegal immigrant captured and detained on their soil, as it is now done by EU in Libya and Turkey, externalizing the issues and preventing people to get even close to their shores and borders allowing them to maintain a narrative that the problem does not exist or is not as large as it is in reality. more…

Sunday Trash Clean Up in the Forest
