The village is, as many villages nearby, threatened to be destroyed for the lignite-mine of RWE. The majority of inhabitants, that used to live in those villages, have already been kicked out and some houses are already teared down.

We want to fight RWEs control on the houses and turn them into spaces were people can live, organize and connect. We think that houses should be for the use of the people living there, not for the profit of a company.

It cant be accepted that here is a lack of flats and living places while RWE expropriate houses in order to destroy them. This destruction is legalized and supported by the state and the police.

The consequences are not only local, but global. Burning lignite is pushing further the global climate warming.

We stand in solidarity with other occupations, no matter if its RWEs infrastructure, house or forest.

It’s the same fight.

We cant count on the decisions of politicians, but do it ourselves to create a world where no one has the power to destroy the local area and communities and the global climate.

We want to invite everyone to come around and share their struggle and ideas.

There will be a party in the garden, today (22th of April) at 3:00 pm.
