After the destruction of a large part of the meadow occupation by the police we call for a demo against state arbitrariness and for the preservation of Hambach Forest.
On Tuesday, the police brutally cleared the meadow camp, destroyed several buildings, stole water, tools and other infrastructure, and did not stop at personal items such as tents, sleeping bags, and cameras.
All those present in the meadow were given a sending-off – and this on a private property and without the owner of the meadow being informed. 15 people were arbitrarily arrested and access to the meadow and the publicly accessible forest was denied all day long. That is completely disproportionate!
The state government of North Rhine-Westphalia is trying to criminalize the resistance and to wear it down, because the meadow camp is an important infrastructure of resistance in the Hambach Forest.
But we will not accept that! We will not let that stop us!
Together, we will vigorously move with many in a demonstration to the meadow and protest for the preservation of Hambach forest and thus for climate justice.
Together we will prevent the clearing and save the Hambach forest!
Place: Buir Railway station (Open Street Map)
Time: 5:00 pm meeting point, 5:30 Start of the demo
Final rally: about 6:30
Following the demonstration, there will be food in the meadow camp and this way the meadow will be revived collectively.
