Eviction aborted!

RWE realized that the weather did not permit an eviction yesterday, November 27. So RWE announced to launch a new eviction attempt today. The weather today will be good. Come in great numbers to the vigil taking place in solidarity with the occupants and the preservation of the Hambach Forest!
The vigil(s) are on the way north from Buir to the old A4 motorway exit. From the meadow from you can go there with accompaniment. Let us support our comrade numerously!

UPDATE: The security intensified its presence in the area and is intimidating people! It is best to go directly to the meadow. From there we can go in groups. We also can pick up people at the Buir railway station or accompany them from there. Take care of yourselves, and don’t let them intimidate you! Contact: 0049 157 5413 6100

Neuland is surrounded

The tree occupation Neuland has been surrounded with a fence today. It has a distance from 40 to 100 meters from the tree. Durimg the day four generators have been placed around the fence for electricity for light during the night. 6 security guards stand around the fence partly armed with sticks.
They placed a basket with food below the tree, probably to lure people on the tree down.
The used techice is the same for the tree occupation Kelsterbach 2009. The fence has been a good opportunity to talk with the guards and to get to know how bad their contracts and fees are (impressions from the occupation in Kelsterbach). Also for Stuttgart 21 a legendary fence has been used for an art project.
