Addendum to the blockade of the Hambach railway on Oct. 24th 2015

Reported are sexist attacks on the part of security guards. An activist in the Lock-On was illuminated with a flash-light while the secu conveyed his rape fantasies in detail. Apparently, one secu also boasted that he was the one who broke our compa’s nose on Thursday. We wonder whether RWE orders sexist attacks by its employees (which after all are also the employees of subcontractors), whether they promote them consciously, or whether this happens without their knowledge (then it should be known by now). In that case, an internal investigation would certainly be appropriate, together with an indication that something like this just is not on. The question is also why real grievous bodily harm by the part of the secus again stay unpunished, while the abused persons sit in jail.
From the police station is reported that the female activist had to completely undress, although (because?) male socialized police officers were still present. Also that should not work that way.
Freedom to the prisoners!

Another coal train blockade on the Hambachbahn

“If you break our noses, we will stop your trains!”

This morning at about half past 5, tere have again been activists of the anti-browncoal-movement stopping a train on the Hambachbahn. The Hambachbahn is transporting brown coal from the open cast mine Hambach to the power plants around. The action has been done as a direct response to the violent arrest of two companions. One of them had his nose broken.
During the action, both people chained themselves near or on the stopped coal train to the rails. The train traffic on the Hambachbahn was stopped for at least 3 1/2 hours. The action has most likely already been stopped by the police. Unfortunately, we don’t have any information about the police station our companions have been brought to.
We will update you as soon as possible.

Again activists from the Hambach forest in prison

Since the 23rd of October 2015 two of our compas are imprisoned being accused of assault. At the 22. of October 2015 the annual cutting works in the Hambach forest began.
An autonomous group of two people being on their way in the forest did not return.
Only the next morning we got the information that the missing persons are in custody.
One of them was said to be in Hürth, the police didn’t give any information about the other saying the person rejected a lawyer.
During the day we got the news that both people were brought before the committing magistrate. Their physical condition remained unknown to us.
In the evening we were informed that both persons were in detention on the accusation of attacking RWE workers. One of them got his nose broken while being arrested.

Since 1947 RWE destroyed nature in the Rhineland, resettles whole villages and steals the living space of humans and animals to get one of the most dirty and inefficient energy carriers: brown coal.
A living forest is killed for a dying energy sources of our time.
Of former 5000 ha of forest only 600 ha remain and this year 68 more will be cut down.
To resist against this practice the forest occupation in the Hambach forest existed since 2012 having been complemented with a meadow occupation in 2013.

arrests for online boycott of Toro de la Vega

Posted on October 16, 2015 by Capità Pirata

On the morning of October 16, there was a simultaneous operation in various parts of the state, with the participation of police armed with machine guns to arrest five people for online boycotting the ‘Toro de la Vega’. One of them is from Borges del Camp and is in dependencies of the National Police of Tarragona.

From the Pirate Confederation, Pirates of Catalonia and the Pirate Movement, we claim the release without charges immediately for all detainees and the immediate treatment of those responsible for these events. This action cannot be considered a crime, but a peaceful claim against a cruel and inhuman act carried out in Spain.

At the same time we demand the elimination of the events of torture and animal abuse, of the ‘gag laws’ and all repressive laws against public protests, whether on the Internet or on the street.

Update (18: 30h): It seems that finally there was only one arrest in connection with this case, although we had been informed about five detainees. The arrested is a member of PACMA.

Once more an excavator was occupied

Düren. In the night from October 13th to 14th, three anti-coal activists occupied a bucket wheel excavator in the opencast lignite mine Hambach between Cologne and Düren. Over several hours, they were able to stop the operation of the mine before they were evicted by the police and brought to the police station in Düren.

By their action, the activists not only wanted to counteract directly the destruction the mining causes, locally by dredging away entire villages and landscapes and the global destruction caused by climate change, but they also demonstrated solidarity with an activist who is in pre-trial detention since October 8, after having been arrested in a similar action, in which the main conveyor belt in the open pit was blocked. And it had to be a foretaste of the action on next Saturday (see below). more…

Our shit against your violence!


Activist in front of the police station in Düren

Original German text:
By: Hambi Chaos Crew.
Oct. 9th, 2015

Today, the golden piece of shit goes to the police station Düren – in the truest sense of the word. To oppose something to the repressive bullshit with increasing brutality, that the activists of the Hambach Forest lately have to suffer, flew last night paint & shit bombs to the police station. In addition, a banner was hoisted on which was: “Our shit against your violence!” This should should explain why there were, outside and inside of the gates of the police station, splashes of paint and shit and a stench was spreading.
