Paragraph 11 and GhostTown: the New Front Line

As forest communities one after another have been demolished, new tree houses and occupations and their extended defenses have been popping up like mushrooms after the rain: Fendria, Ghostown and Paragraph 11.
P11 and Ghostown have been surrounded by all around barricade-like walls, with inside a village like community of ground blockaders with kitchens, supply storage. P11 has areas protected not just by one perimeter of rampart walls, more…

Report and thoughts on the tripod-eviction at the power-plant-blockade in Niederaussem, 15.09.2018

The deadly event in the Hambach Forest on 19.09.2018 shocked me, in my already existing sadness and nervous overstimulation, and almost made me freeze up. To work against this feeling of suspension, I tried, with the following cutout of my memory, to process my experiences, which I luckily have the possibility to share. Only days before I was brought into a life-threatening situation, by police-officers and RWE-workers hand-in-hand. With this small piece of text, I am trying to encourage people who say „they are doing a great job“ or „the activists are bringing themselves into danger“ to reconsider. To all police-officers who had doubts, whether at the place of action or in the detention centre: just stop only following orders and defending your own situation. Think about it, and change it. more…

Press Release 09/27/2018

LORIEN STILL RESISTANT, REUL STILL AN ASS

Another day is over in this tough, weeks-long eviction by police and state machinery for the profits of RWE and their coal lobby.

After the destruction of Oaktown, Gallien, Cozytown, Beechtown and Kleingartenverein, Lorien is the last major occupation that is still fought for. For days, the police there tried to evict the people from their tree houses.

But thanks to the great support of sitting blocks, standing blocks and the presence of many people on spot, we achieved that almost all tree houses are still standing. TakaTuka is the only tree house from where the climbing police today “saved” people with lift trucks more…

Solidarity with AZ Cologne

The AZ Cologne (autonomous center) and the Wagenplatz “Who owns the world”, also in Cologne, are both in acute danger of eviction and destruction. The AZ for the extension of the green belt, a parking strip across Cologne, the Wagenplatz should be sold.
The exploitation interests of an unbridled financial market in the city of Cologne are the cause of this distribution of primarily left, self-managed open spaces from the cityscape of Cologne. These mostly noncommercial spaces, which do not bring big money to anyone but much more bring people together, should go away. more…

Solidarity with the Trebur forest occupation!

The fight for climate justice is everywhere! Solidarity with the Trebur Forest occupation!

The destructive expansion of industrial capitalism has many faces.
Whether in the context of the expropriation of land in Notres-Dames-des-Landes, attack on indigenous sovereignty on Turtle Island, or destruction of nature in the Rheinland, it is clear that our resistance against this system of exploitation and destruction, is one of solidarity! more…

Lorien Resists!! Treehouses, Mass Blockades + Tripods, Tripods, Tripods

In the last years Hambach Forest has become an international symbol of climate justice! So has every single occupation that stood firm against RWE Climate Killer coal for last several years, and continues in our hearts and our stories long after it is physically gone.

One occupation, Lorien, remains and has done so for the last 2 weeks of intense blockades involving tripods all around this tree-sit barrio reinforced by sit-down more…
