Shooting on cops with sparrows

Picture from the Bild-Zeitung – Caption: A group from the scene of forest occupiers is studying a kind of battle plan against the police
(found on bildblog.de)

It could be that soon parachute-jumping rabbits, turtles with rifles and dogs with cannons attack the police in or around the Hambach Forest. It is also possible that the ants with their pit helmets are there and demonstrate for civil rights, and the bats make it clear once more on their banners that there is nothing to sell. “Bild-Zeitung” and its editor Peter Poensgen are certainly on the track of a very hot thing. more…

Skillsharing camp spring 2019 – Save the Date

Hi, we have good news for you. We, a group of activists from the field of the occupation of the Hambach Forest, are planning – after the large-scale eviction of last autumn, which lay as a big shadow over the last Skillshare – the traditional spring skillsharing camp again, right inside forest and meadow. So mark the period from 12.04.2019 to 24.04.2019 fat in your appointments diary. We have tried to cover as many holiday periods as possible during this period in order to enable young people who are forced to spend their time in educational institutions to participate.

If you already have questions or you are people from the immediate vicinity of the occupation who can imagine helping with the organization, then write to skillsharing.hambacherforst@nullriseup.net.

RiseUp4Rojava – Call for global days of action to defend the Revolution

Call for Global Days of Action on 27 and 28 January 2019

On January 27th, exactly four years ago, the city of Kobane in northern Syria was freed from the hands of the gangs of the so-called Islamic State after months of fierce fighting by the courageous fighters of the YPJ and YPG. At that time, we poured onto the streets in our millions, day after day, week after week, to express our solidarity with the Kobane resistance and to compel the world to act. Nonstop, powerful actions outside the Middle East gave the comrades fighting in the city courage to continue and forced the international powers to act. more…

Hambach Forest, lofty heights and deep precipices, part 1

Original title: Hambacher Forst Hoch und Tiefbau
Building and civil engineering
“A film about the Hambach Forest, an insight into lofty heights, deep precipices, an eviction and what I have to do with it – all this happened not so long ago between Cologne and Aachen.”
Only at the beginning there is pretty much text in German, otherwise the film speaks for itself.
Part 2

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…

Generation of power from lignite affects the global climate and destroys the landscape and ecosystems of an entire region. Whole villages have to give way to the “general interest”. In fact, this is just the interest of individuals and their only motivation is profit. more…

In memory of Oury Jalloh – Info and Solidarity Action

Oury Jalloh that was murder!
… one of many
… by police officers
… in Germany!

“Open your eyes! Stay awake! Stop destroying this world! ”
(Mouctar Bah from the initiative in memory of Oury Jalloh)

Stop police brutality, whether in the forest, in the pedestrian zone or in jail. We experience police brutality not only in Hambi. Daily it takes place in the cities and villages of Germany, for example by racial profiling. Their most brutal expressions are found in racially motivated illegal deprivation of liberty, torture and finally murders. Oury Jalloh is not the only one brutally murdered. The clarification of this truth could only be achieved through years of persistent and independent investigation of the initiative in memory of Oury Jalloh, who had to enforce itself through countless attacs from state forces.

This truth must be acknowledged and responsibility taken!

In memory of Oury Jalloh and all the others, we support the battles of the initiative in memory of Oury Jalloh!
