After the events on Thursday, 13 of 14 arrested activist are free again. Most of them remained at the police stations for about 24 hours. One person is still in jail, probably because of extremely severe accusations. We will try to put up the prisoner support for him on the occupation.
Some arrested activists were forced to give their fingerprints by violence. 6 had to give their DNA to the court. While raiding the meadow occupation, the police confiscated several items they defined as illegal. Some small electronical devices were stolen by police “in private”. 5 climbing harnesses and several mobile phones were confiscated from the arrested people.
While the only treehouse which was located in the this year clearcut area has been evicted, the Hambach Forest remains occupied at two other spots.
