Dear students of Fridays For Future,
We have been following the world wide climate protests and strikes with great excitement. And since we founded Fridays For Future Rojava in May of this year we have been protesting and striking along side you!
Fridays For Future has brought young people together all over the world, united by the understanding that we cannot continue living in a world in which nature is being destroyed!
The reality in Rojava, the Kurdish region of Northern Syria, is very different from the reality in many places, where there are local chapters of FFF. more…
UPDATE: Deges (the company that wants to build the highway) announced on Friday to delay the tree felling by one year. The activists still want to fit out their tree houses and hibernate in them, because they did not refrain from executing the planned project! Deferred is not equal to canceled!

In Dannenrod Forest between Dannenrod, Lehrbach and Niederklein on the edge of the Vogelsberg district (near Marburg, Giessen) trees were occupied in an old, intact mixed forest to prevent the expansion of the A49 motorway! Further information – see press release below.
There are people in the trees – but there was already police contact in the forest today. Kites (birds) and helicopters (machines) circle over the treetops. Fire salamanders and humans move at the roots of the trees and are happy about supporters.
The people in the forest are looking forward to local support and solidarity! A blog is under development at https://waldstattasphalt.blackblogs.org/. more…
We are happy to announce that David Rovics will not only be on October 17th in the Allerweltshaus in Cologne, but also on October 23rd playing in the hambi. Details about start time and place (meadow or forest) will follow soon. Come in plenty!
This is the temporary timetable for the skillsharing camp. This isn’t the final version. The participation of many is vital to the skillsharing camp. If you have a skill you want to share or you want to talk about a specific topic… go for it and write an e-mail about what you want to do and when, to firstname.lastname@example.org. All workshops and events are at the meadow or the forest.
The workshops are generally on the meadow, if there are at an other place, it’s mentioned in the title. Here is the current map with all workshop locations.
A little annotation: Title and description are from the people doing the workshops. We, the orga, do explicitly not support every content. We are a diverse movement and of course different opinions are required.
We do NOT want racism, sexism, homophobia, transphobia, other group-applied hostility against people and generally right-wing shit.
The translation isn’t finished yet, it’s going to be finished the next days.
Kurt Claßen, the owner of the meadow, wrote the mail below. We translated the most important paragraph:
The question of whether the protest camp next to Hambach Forest must be evicted or not, was not the subject of the decision of the Administrative Court of Aachen in an urgent procedure, thus the the court has not decided in this. The subject of the decision of the Administrative Court was rather the question of whether the ordinance order of the Kreis (district) of Düren is unlawful. The press release saying that the administrative court Aachen has decided this: “protest camp in Hambach Forest must be evicted“ is wrong.
The following text was published (and commented, mainly in english) on the german version of our site.
It is an open answer to Extinction Rebellion Köln. It is continuing the discourse that started on the hambibleibt mastodon account with a thread about controversies related to XR.
To read how it started follow this link:

The second Skillsharing Camp of this year will take place from September 15th to 23rd. Here is the current Timetable.
We, the orga team, are currently very understaffed. If you are currently in the forest and / or in the meadow and you can imagine helping, then write to email@example.com. No prior knowledge required 😉
We still don’t have a kitchen crew. If you happen to be a culinary collective that can imagine cooking in the period then write as well.
Also artists, speakers and people who are already in demand can write.

There is also an english version, with a lot of information, but no actual news
UPDATE 20 July:
Occupied trees : all occupied trees are evicted.
That was a short occupation! But not the last one. In total, since the beginning of the reoccupation attempt, we counted 17 arrests:
- 8 people in ID checks, everyone is released
- 8 people in custody, everyone is released
- 1 person under a judicial supervision with territory ban was arrested and sent to jail for four months for violating their judicial supervision
“For Hambach we will design a completely new lignite planning,
so that the forest could be preserved permanently” …
… thus “recently” the CEO of RWE AG, Rolf Martin Schmitz, according to Kölner Stadt-Anzeiger, edition Rhein-Erft, page 32, last column, last paragraph: “Excavators come closer to the forest”.
What does that mean in detail? more…
