Dates March 2016

Trial for alleged insult of judge Witzel
March 3 / lower regional court Kerpen
On Thursday, March 3, 2016 at 11 am before the lower regional court of Kerpen (Room 108, 1st floor , Nordring 2-8) there will be a trial for an alleged insult of the judge Witzel. He himself is district judge in Kerpen. With disgusting methods he tried to punish an anti-coal activist, which by now failed in the revision. Accused is the activist Jörg Bergstedt (one of the supporters of offensive self- and lay defense – so it could be fun and this is already the second attempt).
More info: Is it an insult to call a judge “perversor of justice”?

March 4 / lower regional court Düren

Skills to ShareSkill Sharing Camp
March 25 – April 3 / Hambach Forest
For almost exactly 4 years, the Hambach Forest in the Rhenish lignite mining area near Cologne is occupied. This is a sign to stop the voracious excavators of the lignite industry and therefore a sign for a better climate and a system change. For direct resistance it needs people with diverse skills and creative ideas to stay a step ahead of the repressive power.
That is why we invite all of you to the 10 days Skill Sharing Camp from March 25 to April 3, to teach and learn skills together, and to try them out.

    Hi, just a quick update from the top of my head: Mr. Blue was sentenced to a fine equaling 150 days in prison, Basti was sentenced to one year in prison, suspended to 3 years probation. Both verdicts can be appealed afaik, i’m not sure if people are planning to though.

    you can bring dogs, it’s generally no problem. Of course they should respect people’s boundaries, just like human animals, like when they bark all night or attack people it’s not so nice, but otherwise its fine.
