Solidarity with Hambi from Australia

From: https://insurrectionnewsworldwide.com

Received on 05.02.18:

Solidarity from so-called Victoria, Australia, with imprisoned comrades from the Hambach forest occupation in Germany. On January 22nd, cops raided tree houses and barricade structures in the forest, and took 9 people into custody. We took this photo as a small part of the international day of solidarity with the Hambi 9 on February 3rd.

The occupation has for years now been an amazing and inspiring site of resistance against the continued expansion of Europe’s largest coal mine. It is part of a global struggle against ecological destruction brought on by capitalism.

Freedom for eco-defenders everywhere!

Weekend Actions Across Europe in Solidarity with Hambi

This Weekend’s Outpouring of Solidarity for Hambi from Across Europe and the World

Rising level of repression and police actions in Hambach Forest, continual lignite mining, temporary hold on logging for this year only by RWE, and rising level of propaganda and police threats to use this „no logging year” to plan to evict over 20 tree-houses and over 11 barrios blocking the largest toxic lignite mine in Western Europe, all of this and of course the record number of nine, now four (one is too many regardless of who they are) of Hambach Forest defenders in prison, all of this has led to: more…

DIRECT ACTION REPORTS IN SOLIDARITY WITH HAMBI 9

Over the past weeks we have seen an increase of direct action against the forces of oppression around the forest as a response after nine Hambi activists were sent to prison for occupying structures during a recent barricade eviction

We have compiled some of the reports published by other websites in relation to Hambi9 solidarity actions. Although the editors of this blog have nothing to do with the actions and all actions have been reported from outside groups, we believe that any memory of any solidarity action should be kept as a show of love towards those who don’t fear the repression and help protect the forest.

DISCLAIMER: We do not promote, nor condemn the actions described in the reports. We are unaware of the identity of the activists involved and we do not have the intention to find out. more…
