This post was written shortly before the commission mentioned below published its results. As you may see, it is still very actual! Opinions and thoughts of a group of people from the forest about the upcoming end of the commission on growth, structural change and employment
This commission is also known as coal-commission. This term is often been used in the public to create a false presentation. The exit of coal is just one of many topics, which is also just being discussed under “economical aspects”. Also the commission is talking about how to follow the aims for climate protection and the reduction of the CO2-emissions. For us it’s a mystery, how they want to reduce emissions, since they are actually talking about growth. more…
Picture from the Bild-Zeitung – Caption: A group from the scene of forest occupiers is studying a kind of battle plan against the police
(found on bildblog.de)
It could be that soon parachute-jumping rabbits, turtles with rifles and dogs with cannons attack the police in or around the Hambach Forest. It is also possible that the ants with their pit helmets are there and demonstrate for civil rights, and the bats make it clear once more on their banners that there is nothing to sell. “Bild-Zeitung” and its editor Peter Poensgen are certainly on the track of a very hot thing. more…
Hi, we have good news for you. We, a group of activists from the field of the occupation of the Hambach Forest, are planning – after the large-scale eviction of last autumn, which lay as a big shadow over the last Skillshare – the traditional spring skillsharing camp again, right inside forest and meadow. So mark the period from 12.04.2019 to 24.04.2019 fat in your appointments diary. We have tried to cover as many holiday periods as possible during this period in order to enable young people who are forced to spend their time in educational institutions to participate.
On January 24, the appeal hearing against an anarchist will take place. The charge is “disruption of public companies”, this is a blockade of the Hambach railway.
Here you can find the report of the first-instance hearing.
When: 9:00 am on Jan. 24th, 2019
Where: Landgericht Stuttgart (= district court), Urbanstrasse 20, 70182 Stuttgart (Open Street Map)
Since it is a juvenile criminal case, the process will take place near the registration address.
Call for Global Days of Action on 27 and 28 January 2019
On January 27th, exactly four years ago, the city of Kobane in northern Syria was freed from the hands of the gangs of the so-called Islamic State after months of fierce fighting by the courageous fighters of the YPJ and YPG. At that time, we poured onto the streets in our millions, day after day, week after week, to express our solidarity with the Kobane resistance and to compel the world to act. Nonstop, powerful actions outside the Middle East gave the comrades fighting in the city courage to continue and forced the international powers to act. more…

“A film about the Hambach Forest, an insight into lofty heights, deep precipices, an eviction and what I have to do with it – all this happened not so long ago between Cologne and Aachen.”
Only at the beginning there is pretty much text in German, otherwise the film speaks for itself. Part 2
Due to increasing police violence, it can be assumed that in case of evictions, people brutally will be mistreated again. This can not be allowed and we are sick of it! Let us protect our homes and our tree houses! The evictions are a pretext to clearcut the Hambi piece by piece prematurely. The deforesting stop is thus not observed.
Appeal to all activists and demonstrators who were affected by police violence during tree house evictions during the last 6 years:
For an urgent lawsuit, we need testimony in the form of a sworn statement for which you must be willing to provide personal information. more…
Today, on January 11th, 2019, we, a group of autonomous activists, have occupied a bucket wheel excavator in the brown coal opencast mine of Profen.
Generation of power from lignite affects the global climate and destroys the landscape and ecosystems of an entire region. Whole villages have to give way to the “general interest”. In fact, this is just the interest of individuals and their only motivation is profit. more…
