Digger blocade – again?

This text was published on june 24th on de.indymedia.org/node/34099

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…

So to make you know what you are getting into, first a few quotes from the official protocol of the first instance:

“The following court order is then issued: It is forbidden to disturb the course of the meeting by calling or throwing objects from the spectator area…”

They report that on that Saturday, as is so often the case, they went to save food from the trash. They reported that during that week they had found particularly much of food of long durability, such as several bottles of olive oil, lentils and a bulging shopping cart full of wheat tortillas.

Although we realize that a police action in the forest can happen at any time, we startle at seven o’clock in the morning of Monday morning when we are awakened by the call “police in the forest”. Police vans come along the former A4 motorway, stop and cops get out. Quickly we bring important stuff behind the protective fence under the tower, close and barricade the entrance and pull up the ladder. Meanwhile crow’s nest is surrounded. Police squads photograph and map the location of the tree houses. Chants are yelled. We are tense. A wheel loader enters into the forest and transports deadwood away. Then the driver approaches the tower with aggressive gestures. On its balcony activists observe the situation. He drops his gripper arm on the rinsing station below, more…

Tu, 03/26
12:00 am “End of the operation”: Police and RWE leave the forest. It may be that it will take a while for everyone to get away or that they come back at any time. Criminal charge now: attempted grievous bodily harm because of a fallen bucket. Regardless of the content, this could have injured a person on the ground from this large fall height.
11:20 Currently all eviction measures are discontinued. The person is brought to Aachen. It will be checked if this is the one whom the police is looking for.
11:05 One person “voluntarily” left a tree house and is now in police treatment on the former A4. It is unclear what the reasons are and whether that has any impact on the ongoing eviction.
10:50 The first tree of the day is felled. more…

Since today there is a large police operation in Hambach Forest again.

In the early morning hours, the vigil was surrounded and searched, allegedly to check the conditions imposed by the assembly authority.

Then police entered the forest with 2 hundreds, together with RWE workers and security guards, according to their own statements in order to eliminate “trash and non-forest objects and to restore traffic safety”. Nothing new, they often come for such “floor clearances”, which is to destroy kitchens, toilets and other infrastructure that are located on the floor. more…
