MEADOW OFFERED FOR SALE TO RWE FOR 80 BILLION EURO

ONLY 80,000,000,000 EURO!!!!

State of NRW has notified the owner of the Meadow that it is to be sold to RWE Power AG through expropriation and imminent domain.

Purchase price offered is 12,500 Euro.

Asking purchase price: 80 billion Euro.

RWE’s purchase price offer was determined on the basis of the value that the meadow would have if used for agricultural purposes (= fictitious value).

The purchase price claim of the signatory (= K.C.) is measured according to the profits RWE generates from the ownership of the meadow (= real value) over the term of the opencast mine. These profits amount to a total of around 4 billion euros per year x term of the opencast mines of 20 years = 80 billion euros. These profits are generated at RWE Power AG.

SAT. 10:00 Garden Planting – Wild Food Walk – Lunch

This Saturday at 10:00 join us for breakfast in the Meadow Occupation following which we will plant this year’s vegetable and herb gardens. After 3-4 hours of which we will go for a Wild Forest Food walk and collect nettles (Brennesseln) for vegan burgers and forest “cooked spinach” with Bear Garlic collection for Pesto, we will also collect an assortment of other spring fresh forest plants for a wild salad. We will then chill out in the forest and have lunch. Here it has to be also pointed out that it is estimated that Earth, in its present state of ecological deterioration, could only sustain about 20 million people if wild foods were being widely harvested. So this mini wild-foods skill-sharing is just to show what forest have been able to offer us and what will disappear when they like Hambi (most of it this Oct-March) will be gone and destroyed. With many plants like Nettles, Bear Garlic, and Dandelion being the first pioneering plants in the previously disturbed and cut by RWE areas.

Every year for last six years there have been planted extensive, vegetable and herb gardens in the meadow. This year do to high intensity and frequency of large police actions and detentions we have fallen a bit behind. Many of us have also been spending more time deeper in the forest resisting RWE’s attempt to destroy it. So any support planting this year would be a great exercise of community coming together, a celebration of spring.

Every planting and every garden in the Hambach Forest Occupation has showed that the RWE clear-cutting and Climate killing CO2 dumping coming from its open cast pits has not just been resisted, with blockades, barricades, locking on and sabotage but also with gardens, kitchens, music, sense of community and art all of which combined were and are so powerful and dangerous that thousands of police with helicopters, tanks, horses, dogs, cranes and bulldozers had to be send on many different occassions to try to destroy it also attempting to convince the population that we and not RWE continuing dumping of 150 millions of tons of carbon into the atmosphere is the real risk and real danger to the local community, region and the Planet. Hmmm you could have build a heck of mega large scale gardens for the budget of 100s of millions used against hambi. But such a mega project with the coruption and mutual back scratching involved in government projects would probably be very limited, boring hirarhical with most funds sub-divided internally in between industry and government officials with another large portion left to pay off the press such as Build to write what great job they did and how glad everybody is that they have done it(if they did which of course they have not).

So once again for creative, simple, muscle and veggie powered horizontalist resistance action join us this Saturday 10:00 in the Meadow!

Bring Seeds!

For Hambi and for the Planet!

Below you find a smorgasbord of news and announcements that reached us today. Despite the compact form, of course, every message is important and noteworthy.


“Hello,
First our web site had greetings supporting you, now we also have got a radio report from Rostock on the Hambi:

We would be pleased if you want to spread it!

Greetings from the coast!”


“Dear environmentalists,
We need your support! Only for half an hour.
Please come tomorrow at 11:55 am to the RWE Tower in Essen and express your solidarity for the preservation of the Hambach Forest.
By conserving the Hambach Forest, RWE must set a symbol for the exit from ligbite power generation and declare itself in favor of an RWE specific transition to renewable energies…
Open Street Map
In collaboration of BUND and Greenpeace there is a daily vigil at the RWE tower in Essen: “Two to twelve – Time to Rethink”. The topics: Hambach Forest, Coal exit, CO₂-Problem.” Duration about 30 minutes.

“Let’s make (hi)story together!

We invite you to an interactive fairytale evening on Friday, December 22, 2017. We take the winter solstice as an occasion for a fairytale evening of a different kind: At the beginning, a story is read out. Afterwards we can continue to develop the story together.

Time: Friday, December 22, 2017, 4:00 pm
Location: Round house in the meadow

Maybe a co-developed story can serve as an inspiration and a vision, with which we actually make history together in 2018 and the miracle of Manheim comes true:
The last remnant of the Hambach forest remains and can regenerate itself.
The demolition work in the villages of Manheim and Morschenich will be stopped and the vision of the “New Village” will be implemented.
The terra nova observation deck will offer a view of innovative energy storage solutions which ensure on a long-term basis, together with renewable energies in the former Rhenish lignite mining area
1) security of supply,
2) jobs,
3) competitiveness,
taking into account the natural and non-negotiable environmental laws.

The language of this event will be German. Depending on the interest and feedback we might offer an evening in English next year.

We look forward to seeing you!”
