Handen af van het bos! - actie weekenden tegen het kappen van het Hambach bos.



The Hambach forest and the people there need your help!

There are still 14 (!) persons in custody in the police stations in Jülich, Aachen and Düren.
Five of them are seemingly going to be summonded to a custodial judge. That means that police wants to arrest them for a longer time. It seems that they want to force some people to give their DNA as well.

What you can do to support the Hambach forest:
- Come around, support directly the people in the forest and on the meadow (a nice face can give a lot of power!)
- Go to the police stations in which people are hold under arrest – ask, put pressure, nobody is going to be forgotten! (it would be best if you call the meadow phone [0157 – 54 136 100] for coordination and to know where people are needed, how the food and water supply is working, if more people want to go there and so on).
- Call the police stations, ask for the arrested people, put pressure and claim to release them
show solidarity wherever you are – for example via e-mails, banner actions (best with foto to hambacherforst@riseup.net) or whatever.
- Spread information – tell your family, friends, neighbours, colleagues,…, spread flyers, send mails or whatever which form of information you can imagine. Be creative!

100 meters distant from a new tree occupation in the cutting area of RWE a harvester has been squatted to block the ongoing fellings. Both occupations are part of the campaign „hands off the trees!“ (german: „Kein Baum fällt“), that continues unabatedly in the light of last week’s repression.
We defend the forest against your violence!

Since Thursday one imprisoned comrade is awaiting trial in Aachen. Please contact us to express your solidarity via post mail.


14:00 Uhr – RWE personel starts cuttings near a tree, that has been occupied four days ago.
15:00 Uhr – Activists express the imminent danger of people in the trees.
15:30 Uhr – A harvester is blocked by four persons.
16:00 Uhr – Private security guards retreat from the tree occupation to gather at the squatted vehicle. They are armed with iron tonfas as usual.

forest destruction stopped for several hours +++ 14 arrestees +++ 1 activist remains in Jail +++ Grubenblick-Occupation evicted +++ cruelty against activists at police stations +++ Meadow-occupation raided by police +++

After the events on Thursday (10/30/2014), 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.
