Calling of some forest occupants on the occasion of yesterday’s announcement of RWE, they want to fell trees in Hambi

German original: Indymedia

RWE announced yesterday via press release in their usual self-assured style, “within a short time” to want to fell trees, which are “dead or incurably damaged by the drought of last summer as well as by pest infestation”. Affected are allegedly 9 different, unspecified, locations in the occupied part of the forest, in the Merzenicher Erbwald near Morschenich, in the forest near the Hambach railroad and in the mining area.

Although we have nothing against trees occasionally falling on the rails, we will refer to the more ecologically valuable contiguous woodlands in the occupied part of the forest and in the Merzenicher Erbwald. more…

Some thoughts by Luna about shoes, standing up and respect

Since I am not present today and I also miss the chance for a last word, I formulate here a few (not sober) thoughts on the tripod process and the orderly detention for “lack of respect.”

During the scandal negotiation from 13.06. I was the only one on the prosecution / defense bench who wore shoes from the beginning. I wonder now, why actually? Why do I wear shoes in bright sunshine? Well, probably two reasons. First, I find hot asphalt in the summer actually not very pleasant. And second, presumably vanity. I mean, if I’m dressed completely black for the process somehow also black shoes belong to it. Maybe vanity is a weakness of mine. But there is certainly no lack of respect. more…

Why we are not going to appear at the main hearing on 06/27 – a statement by Luna and B-Mike

In the two trial days of the first instance and the previous two of the appeal, we have experienced many absurdities in the process of a blockade of the Hambachbahn 2017 and reported on Twitter live under #TripodProzess. In terms of entertainment and coverage, it is a great pity that we will not appear as defendants on the next day’s trial. But there is simply something more important, you may be able to think what? Of course the Fusion Festival. more…

Since this morning we, an autonomous anarchist affinity group, are blockading a digger in the lignite mine Hambach, approximately ….m distance from the trees.
Every second RWE is irrevocably excavating the earth that we live on, killing fertile soil and leaving behind a huge hole of emptiness.
The coal commission wishes for the conservation of the forest, the coal exit is decided and the forest supposedly saved. Who are they trying to kid?
Further and further the machines are digging forward! more…

Luna & B-Mike in confinement for contempt of court

The following text was published on ABC Rhineland:

After the court did not agree with the procedural behavior in the #TripodProzess on Thursday, June 13, 2019, before the LG Aachen, the two defendants are now in custody.

Luna was brought to the men’s jail Aachen Aachen, B-Mike in the women’s section of the JVA (jail) Köln-Ossendorf. In other words, trans * people are once more put into the binary-contrarian prisons, only to suppress them even more by misgendering than prisons do anyway. At least about Luna we know that she is also in complete solitary confinement (single cell and yard walk alone). What they are doing with B-Mike is still unclear, because so far even the lay defenders are refused contact. more…
