The (german) flyer for the Forest Festival is ready and lots of programme is fixed!
Translation of the flyer’s flipside:
Come to the Forest Festival in the Hambach Forest!
Spring is coming up and the Forest Occupation(s) celebrate their third birthday. So please feel invited to the Forest Festival at this occasion!
On Saturday (4th April) members of the band “Kellerasseln” will read from their book “Topf & Söhne – Besetzung auf einem Täterort” (dt. “Topf & Sons – occupation in the perpetrator’s site”) (see below).
Afterwards the Kellerasseln and other acts will play plugged livemusic. Then on Sunday (5th April) beginning at 2 pm we’ll have an unplugged acoustic concert with singers/songwriters ending with an open jam session, in which everyone will be invited to join in.
Food and beverage are taken care for.
Come to the forest, and dance into a new world!
The occupations in and around the Hambach Forest are directed against the clearcut of the forest and the brown coal extraction causing it.

On Saturday (4th April) members of the band “Kellerasseln” will read from their book “Topf & Söhne – Besetzung auf einem Täterort” (dt. “Topf & Sons – occupation in the perpetrator’s site”)
The squat in the former site of the Erfurt company Topf & Söhne, who had during the period of National Socialism produced the crematory ovens for concentration- and extermination camps, was one of the best known radical leftist projects in Germany in the 2000s.
Our book tries to capture the experiences from that time. With stories and analysis, we reconstruct common struggles and internal disputes, talk to other participants about rats and debates and therefor provide an overview of the squatters’ scene of the 1990s in Erfurt and the historical significance of the Topf & Söhne.
“I found it awesome that we did something on the premises with this stark history, that turned around its use in NS. Like, at those days they did everything for money. We did everything with almost no money. I thought that was the right way to deal with the terrain.”
Coma Richter, squatter
After that, the concert will start.
Nic Knatterton & Johanna (Hip Hop from Aachen)

Lily Havoc (Punk/Metal from Mülheim/Ruhr)
