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…”
Next date: Friday, 5/31/2019, 9 am
On 17.05.2019, a lawsuit against an anarchist from the Hambach Forest will begin.
The allegations are: Attempted serious assault in coincidence with assault on law enforcement officers in a particularly serious case and with damage to property as well as resistance to law enforcement officers and property damage.
Property damage is doubly in there, because it is about several cases.
Where: District Court Düren, Room 1.07
When: May 17th, 2019 at 9:00 am
He is looking forward to a large audience!
A few days ago activists of Ende Gelände blocked a bucket wheel excavator in one of the Lusatian open cast lignite mines. Three of them are still in custody, though the accusation is only trespassing. Obviously the district court in Cottbus does not care that in the past again and again activists were therefore acquitted in court (since the open pit is not fenced).

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…
The most important first: The law suit because of dumpster diving, on 12/12 before the Daun district court, was abandoned against 50 social services hours (to be completed at an association or society, chosen by the accused and the defense attorney).
Even before the beginning of the trial, some remarkable things happened. First of all, many people were there early on in order to accompany the trial in solidarity. So first a big thank you to all who were there. In particular, the partly long travel routes and the large age range impressed us very much. At some moment also appeared the police witness, an unsympathetic officer named Rönsch (from Kempten in Bavaria, where the real supermarket is located, which made the criminal complaint). more…
After the district court Jülich the date on Nov.27th canceled quite spontaneously, it starts on Dec. 18th at 11:15 am a second attempt. The allegations continue to be „Widerstand gegen Vollstreckungsbeamte in besonders schwerem Fall“ (§113 Abs. 2 StGB) (resistance against enforcement officers in particularly severe cases), „Nötigung“ (§240 StGB) (coercion) and for one of the two defendants additionally „Sachbeschädigung“ (damage, §303 StGB). Specifically, it is about a Hambach railway blockade (action statement and press review). more…
On 12.12. an activist who has been active in the Hambach Forest for years, is charged in the district court of Daun (Eifel). The allegation is “theft” of expired food from the dumpster of a supermarket (Real). more…
On October 5th, 2018, the OVG (Higher Administrative Court) in Münster suspended the clear-cutting in Hambach Forest until the decision of the VG (Administrative Court) of Cologne on the legality of the open pit mining in the main proceedings. It was expected by those involved in the process that this might not happen before the end of 2020. Now the VG Cologne announced on December 3, that they want to decide about it already in the first quarter of 2019. If the VG will give right to RWE, they could thus resume the clear-cutting work again in the autumn of 2019 or even at the end of this winter’s deforesting season, depending on the date of the decision.
The previous attitude of the VG Cologne in favor of RWE gives little reason for optimism: http://www.vg-koeln.nrw.de/suche/suche_rwd.php?q=Hambach&m=all&wm=sub more…
