Invitation to the climbing harness liberation party, 12/18 Aachen

Dear Aktivisti!

The long wait ends! The containers in the Asservatenkammer Aachen were emptied, hundreds of confiscated objects from the maddest of all expulsios sorted and registered.

For us this means: the harness-liberation-front will become active!
We want to bring back what was taken from us – collectively!

That’s why we organize on 18.12. a harness-liberation party, wrap it up as pre-Christmas activist gifts and have plenty of cause to wildly give them back to ourselves. The time is funnily limited to 9-11 am – but that should not stop us! more…

Call for solidary process support on 18.12. in Jülich (attempt 2)

After the district court Jülich the date on Nov.27th canceled quite spontaneously, it starts on Dec. 18th at 11:15 am a second attempt. The allegations continue to be „Widerstand gegen Vollstreckungsbeamte in besonders schwerem Fall“ (§113 Abs. 2 StGB) (resistance against enforcement officers in particularly severe cases), „Nötigung“ (§240 StGB) (coercion) and for one of the two defendants additionally „Sachbeschädigung“ (damage, §303 StGB). Specifically, it is about a Hambach railway blockade (action statement and press review). more…

“Even if the immediate eviction is over for the time being – the resistance is going on. Also in court. Support all those affected by repression, let’s keep the judiciary in view – come to the trial and support Andrea on Thursday!”

With ID checks must be expected. In addition, a small room was chosen for the trial. Be there in time!

Demo Against the swing to the right and state repression

Two trials against anti-fascist / anti-racist activists will soon take place in Aachen. We call for a solidary accompaniment of the processes and a demo against the shift to the right and repression. The dates at a glance

One trial will take place following the events in the Frankenberger Viertel in March 2017. There was a quarrel with two organized neo-Nazis. Shortly thereafter, two people were arrested, they were accused of civil disorder and bodily injury. The public prosecutor’s office promptly fantasized about the danger of absconding and put the two on remand for more than two weeks. Now they are charged. more…

Brand I: On property rights to land and forests

Brand III: Resistance within riches (updated 2018 version)

This week we’ll be screening the Brand trilogy by Susanne Fasbender at the Hambi-Camp in Manheim. Impressive and sometimes surreal oppressive scenes from the coal country of Rhineland (and in particular the Hambi) depict the epic devastation caused by resource extraction & land grabbing in context of the economic growth paradigm and the climate crisis – a process that has been affecting this region across generations now.

Innogy/RWE Marathon at Baldeneysee in Essen, this Sunday 10/14/2018
 
On the 14th of October, the very day on which the clearing work in the Hambach Forest was to begin, RWE organizes “Innogy Marathon” on behalf of its subsidiary Innogy on Lake Baldeney. A 17.2 km long route leads around the waters in Essen, the city in which RWE has its headquarters. Around the lake grows a beautiful open forest. Therefore, we decided after several weeks of intensive training in the Im-Wald-und-Wiese-in-Kreis-Laufens in this marathon with several groups in different disciplines to register.
We have come up with funny actions in and around the marathon to undermine this advertising and sportsmanship of the Innogy / RWE climate gangsters. more…

Manheim squat & garden party!

We squatted in Manheim!

Two weeks ago humans were chased from their homes in Hambach Forest. Whilst the main public focus was on the protests in the forest, already for years people have been forced out of the surrounding villages. And so also in Manheim.
Rather than only concerning local inhabitants, coal mining in the Rhineland is also a global problem. more…
