Call for solidarity

The Hambach forest and the people there need your help!
There are still 14 (!) persons in custody in the police stations in Jülich, Aachen and Düren.
Five of them are seemingly going to be summonded to a custodial judge. That means that police wants to arrest them for a longer time.
It seems that they want to force some people to give their DNA as well.

What you can do to support the Hambach forest:
come around, support directly the people in the forest and on the meadow (a nice face can give a lot of power!)
go to the police stations in which people are hold under arrest – ask, put pressure, nobody is going to be forgotten! (it would be best if you call the meadow phone [0157 – 54 136 100] for coordination and to know where people are needed, how the food and water supply is working, if more people want to go there and so on) more…

[!!!] (UPDATE 1 p.m.) Police NOW in the Forest – Alert at the Occupation site [!!!]

(Update 1 p.m.) There is half a “group of one hundred” coppers roaming free, they destroyed the Forest-Café Meeting Point and tore down more infrastructure on the ground.

————————————————–

What did happen so far today…

This very moment a riotous assembly of coppers appeared in the forest. They sniff and goggle and just by their emanating thoughts on authority alone, as well as their armed presence they enforce the power- (aka. violence-) monopoly of the state.

We are going to keep you updated, so far there’s no clarity if this is purely harassment (“inspection”), a raid or the harbinger of an eviction.

We are preparing for all possible options!

HAMBACH FOREST STAYS!
ALL Colours Are Beautiful!

In case you’re not clear about your choice of music for the morning here’s two randomly chosen Youtube-links:

Call Out for Reoccupation of the Hambach Forest on April 26th 2014

After the eviction of the third occupation in the Hambach Forest near Köln, which took place on March 27th after existing almost 7 months, one thing is sure:

Occupation Number 4!

Wiederbesetzung

We had to suffer massive repression, especially this time: the raid on the meadow occupation and two other projects, confiscation of all our electronic devices, hand-written journals as well as private stuff. This proves one thing: Our direct protest against the exploitation and the destruction of nature by RWE is effective. We will show that we’re not afraid and we will not give up!

As announced before, there will be a Re-Occupation at Day X+4 (the saturday 4 weeks after the eviction).

And:
The 26th of April isn’t just a day like another.
This very day exactly 28 years ago the nuclear catastrophe in Chernobyl took place. We cannot seperate the struggles against Coal and Nuclear Power. It’s not enough to shut down nuclear power plants and substitute this by burning coal; as well as it’s not acceptable to stop mining and burning coal for the creation of nuclear energy.
It’s a common resistance against the destruction of nature and the idea of ongoing growth in disregard of the results.

It’s a criticism of capitalist thinking, which just divides in resources and capital.
We cannot wait until the next big catastrophe opens the eyes of people.

Something has to change NOW!

So we will re-occupy the Hambach Forest on April the 26th, massively and determined!

On this day, a demonstration will start at 2 pm at the train station in Buir.

If you are motivated to take part in the organization, you can visit the “Build Resistance Skill Sharing Camp”, which takes place from April 12th to 25th on the occupied meadow. There an open organization meeting for the day of the Re-occupation is going to take place: on Sunday, 13th April, at 12am.

You can participate as individuals or affinity groups in many different ways:
Spread the word, help with the organization, occupy the trees or support on the ground.
Your solidarity is stronger than all repression!

For more information write to hambacherforst@nullriseup.net, or follow our blog: hambacherforst.blogsport.de.

Together, we stop RWE and the open cast pit!
Respect Existence or Expect Resistance!

See you on April 26th!

You can find flyers and posters for self-print hier.

EVICTION in „progress“

The Hambach Forest Occupation is EVICTED right now!
This is where it is going to start!

Several hundred police arrived this morning, surrounding and shutting down the forest occupation from the eyes of anyone who would like to witness what is actually going on.

Infrastructure, Treehouses, trees, hedges, all getting torn apart piece by piece.
Everything is destroyed by loud, obnoxious machinery orchestrated by megalomaniacs, operated by ignorant people who in the end have nothing to claim for themselves but clinging on to their job.
People getting dragged away, getting brutalized, getting violated.

„Build Resistance“ Skill-Sharing Camp

Build Resistance

english deutsch espanol

This April there will be a skill sharing for two weeks on the occupation of the Hambacher Forst/ Hambach Forest. We want to let grow a big diversity of different theoretical and practical workshops, discussions, presentations,actions and so on. Everybody is invited to participate, to bring in own ideas, to share some skills, to offer workshops, to present something or to express her_his displeasure about the destruction of nature and oppression in creative way.

The camp has a emancipatory demand. It shall give us the possibility to share experiences, to connect, to learn together and also from each other and hopefully to come a step closer to a world without dominance: A world in which we take the responsibility for ourselves and our behavior and actions, in which we don’t take orders nobody and in which we can’t command nobody neither, a world in which we live together without any kind of discrimination, in free agreements and mutual aid, trying to self-organize and self-subsist ourselves.

There are already some workshops planned, such as: insulation of walls with adobe, knitting masks, collect wild-growing herbage and different forms of action, for example: samba, action climbing, building tripods, …

If possible please take with you a tent, a sleeping bag, a sleeping pad and wind- and rain-proofed clothes because we have only a limited number of sleeping places. Also it would be nice, if you could contribute with some food (maybe go dumpster-diving some days before). But this is not a must!

See you in April!

Love, solidarity and anarchy!!!
