Skillsharing camp Dannenröder Forest May 4th–11th

The following text has reached us:

We are aware of the risk of spreading the Covid-19 pandemic at large assemblies of people. We can’t look into the future, that’s why the skillshare will take place until further notice.. When the date gets closer, we will keep you up to date in case of any changes.

Overview page for skillshare

Hello everybody,

From May 4th until 11th there will be the first “Wald statt Asphalt” Skillshare Camp in Dannenröder Forest!

A new section of the A49 motorway will run through the forest. Therefore many, partly very old leaves and conifers, which are still full of life at the moment, will give way to the cold asphalt. The planned so-called “compensation measures” clearly do not fulfil their purpose and definitely do not compensate for the loss of several hectares of a centuries-old mixed forest. Furthermore, a new motorway will not, as advocates hope, bring traffic relief to the affected villages and will only serve the capitalist interests of companies based in the nearby urban village such as “Ferrero” or “Fritz Winter”.

The forest has been occupied since the end of September 2019 in order to stop its destruction by the expansion of the A49 and to bring about a traffic which doesnt destroy the climate: freee public traffic on trains, bicycle and walking. By occupying the trees, the clearing work in this forest has effectively been stopped and suspended for at least one year. The activists will not tolerate inactively that living trees are killed in the Dannenröder forest for a failed traffic policy. As long as the occupation exists and beings are fighting there, there will be no highway in the Dannenröder Forest!

There are different ways to be part of the skillshare, e.g. participating in workshops, offering them yourself or just getting to know other great beings.

Skillsharing Camp in Hambach Forest, Sept 15th – 23rd

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 skillsharing.hambacherforst@nullriseup.net. 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.

Invitation to the trial party at the regional court Aachen (5/29)

The trial because of the tripod, which was suddenly on the Hambachbahn during the G20 summit in Hamburg, goes into the second round. After the district court Jülich has sentenced the two defendants in the first instance to a fine of 90 or 100 daily sentences, the appeal is now being held before the district court of Aachen. 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…”
