Why we do not want to have police in the forest

During last forest walk (11/11/2018), two police officers participated. Constant calls and transpis made these contact officers realize that they had no business in the forest and then they went away towards the end of the walk.

What it means to people when police are in the forest can be difficult to understand for many people who have not had much to deal with police and were not involved in the evictions. For weeks the forest was besieged by hundertschaft-units (Units of the federal security alert police of about hundred officers), SEK, eviction tanks. Week-long eviction, that means sleep deprivation for many nights, psychological pressure and stress, to see how your friends are beaten up and the destruction of your home. This psycho terror by the police in recent months had traumatic consequences for many people. The Hambach Forest was and is a living space for many people, above all, a free space, which it is no longer, when police are walking by the forest.

Today there were many small rounds in which the topic “police in the forest” was discussed energetically and emotionally. Since many participators in the forest walk could not understand why we react this way, we want to make it clear once again, since today it was not really the right place nor enough tranquility for a detailed discussion of the topic. more…

Demo Against the swing to the right and state repression

Two trials against anti-fascist / anti-racist activists will soon take place in Aachen. We call for a solidary accompaniment of the processes and a demo against the shift to the right and repression. The dates at a glance

One trial will take place following the events in the Frankenberger Viertel in March 2017. There was a quarrel with two organized neo-Nazis. Shortly thereafter, two people were arrested, they were accused of civil disorder and bodily injury. The public prosecutor’s office promptly fantasized about the danger of absconding and put the two on remand for more than two weeks. Now they are charged. more…

Expropriation of the meadow: workers and their interests only forgotten?

Expropriations should be for the public benefit. For example, because of jobs. Significantly, neither RWE in the application for expropriation of the meadow nor NRW in the 3rd Framework Plan substantiate this expropriation with workers’ interests. Was that only forgotten by RWE and NRW? Embarrassing… Kurt Claßen, the owner of the meadow, digs deeper and wants a statement.

RWE train driver disregarded international emergency signal and brought activists in mortal danger

With a little delay, a report on an incident on Sunday, Oct 28th, 2018

On Sunday evening, a railway blockade by Ende Gelände activists was violently evicted. A train with prisoners from this blockade was stopped by two people in a lock-on and came only to a standstill immediately before the blockade. This gave the police opportunity to a new misrepresentation and accusations of the activists. As we can read in the police press release: more…

Evictions possible this week

TODAY, November 8: Eviction in the Friedensstraße Manheim

Based on different observations, we assume that an eviction of all soil structures and tree houses is scheduled for this week (Nov. 5th – Nov. 9th). Get ready for it, it’s best to come by early, as the access is likely to be more difficult from the beginning of the week. According to previous experience, first the accesses to the wood will probably be limited and controlled, then barricades and soil structures destroyed and then the tree houses be evicted and destroyed.
