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…”

Appeal to all activists and demonstrators who were affected by police violence during treehouse evictions during the last 6 years!!!

We want to prevent the next eviction in court!

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…

Amtsgericht Jülich postponed trial from 11/27

The district court Jülich canceled the trial date on Nov.27th and the continuation date on Dec.11th and scheduled a new date for Dec.18th.
Statement by an accused:

“Obviously, after our trial announcement the court fears us and now wants to organize some Hundertschaft-units of the anti-riot police first to ensure “order”. That tells a lot about how much organs of repression respect and fear us meanwhile and shows that our strategies work. This assumption is corroborated by the fact that the court did not only deliver a copy to the accused, but also called people who are known to have ties to the forest occupation, to ensure that the information reaches everyone in any case. Apparently there was a fear that some people would appear in court anyway. See you on December 18th”

Hambi is just the Beginning!

We, a group of Hambi activists, want to organize evening events in your city. It should be about stories from the Hambach Forest and about writing history ourselves. The leitmotif of the event will be the hope that arises when we bring about change through joint action. We want to take you on a journey by six years of forest occupation and movement building, and to find paths with you on which this journey can go on, to system change and beyond. more…

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…

Evictions possible this week

TODAY, November 8: Eviction in the Friedensstraße Manheim

Based on different observations, we assume that an eviction of all soil structures and tree houses is scheduled for this week (Nov. 5th – Nov. 9th). Get ready for it, it’s best to come by early, as the access is likely to be more difficult from the beginning of the week. According to previous experience, first the accesses to the wood will probably be limited and controlled, then barricades and soil structures destroyed and then the tree houses be evicted and destroyed.

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…
