Cologne, August 12th, 2015 – On Wednesday afternoon, a spontaneous demonstration took place in Cologne. The occasion is the detention of an activist from the Hambach Forest, who was arrested at July 22, at the eviction of a “living barricade”, and since then is in pre-trial detention. In addition, he has since been on a hunger strike.
The spontaneous demonstration started at the JVA (jail) in Cologne / Ossendorf and moved from there to Ehrenfeld.
As activists report from there, the spontaneous demonstration has been encircled by 30 – 40 police officers. There are presently around 40 spontaneous protesters within the police encirclement. According to statements from the spot, it is not permitted to bring water to the people in the police encirclement.
A person is available to the press on the spot for interviews and questions:

Ticker in chronological order:
On the 22nd of July the tower – to this date the only remaining living barricade – got evicted. The tower blocked an important access way to the Hambach Forest and its occupation.
During the 14 hours of the eviction, four activists were arrested of who three have been released, while one is in detention awaiting trial in the JVA (jail) in Köln-Ossendorf. Jus is accused of resisting the eviction. The cops are trying to justify the detention by claiming that Jus doesn’t have a legal address and allegedly “no social obligations in Germany”. Therefore, they think that it’s likely that he will “stay away from trial”.
For us, it’s not acceptable that people experience repression based on their activism against the destruction of nature. Therefore we are calling you to join the manifestation on Saturday 25th of July at 2pm in front of the JVA Köln-Ossendorf. We want to be loud and angry and show diverse forms of solidarity with Jus and all prisoners. Furthermore, there will be the possibility to inform oneself about the occupation of the Hambach Forest and about resistance against ignite mining in this area in general.
