The bottom is being cleared – the top is still untouched
The eviction of the partial occupation by three persons in the lower / mid range of the excavator is has proceeded quite far. One person is already in custody. The V-shaped steel tube, in which another person’s both hands are chained to each other, has already been cut open, presumably by grinding. Thus, it is anticipated that the two other persons won’t remain on the excavator very much longer.
The three other persons, who occupied the tip of the excavator at 70 meters height with climbing equipment, after all didn’t have any police contact.
One embedded press person is also, after all, in place.
.Climbing Cops arrived
The climbing unit of the police is on site and will probably sooner or later start preparing eviction.
Trickle is redirected
A small digger has shown up (or rather a regular-sized one, which is of course tiny in relation to the giant excavator). Using this, the trickle, which (as we all know) threatened to tilt the giant digger and kill the climbers, has been begun to divert. So just in case any autonomous sports groups are around in the mine, please do not under any circumstances sabotage the activities of this digger – it guards the lives of our comrades! (… and along the way, the capital of RWE …)
Helicopter doesn’t do anything
As mentioned. It came, it saw, and it didn’t do anything.
Police submit a request to God to tilt the excavator
Some of the uniform wearers were, in company of RWE employees, on the excavator in order to speak to a part of the occupants. According to them, the excavator at it‘s current position is being undermined by a trickle and therefore threatens to tip over. Of course RWE happen to have noticed just right now that they have parked their giant digger in quicksand. Now isn‘t that delightful for the activists, to finally have a meaningful and so very funny reason for not leaving a perilous place?
About 15 policeofficinated‘s have arrived under the digger and made contact with the RWE employees.
By the way, the excavator has not moved despite the threats.
RWE workforce once again life threatening
Staff of RWE pronounced to pivot the occupied excavator after the activists were already on top of it. This indeed could be life-threatening for the climbers, some of whom are located on the tower of the digger and some in moving parts. After this fact had already been clearly pointed out to the empolyees, they explicitly threatened to activate the machines if the people would not within five minutes be down. And an end to the open death threats is not in sight.
