Second Day of big Vandalism! Support needed!

Yesterday morning the meadow occupation was surrounded by police. This turned into a large scale police operation: All main paths in the forest were cleared, fixed and broadened, all barricades and tripods destroyed. Until today three occupations (unoccupied at that moment) were destroyed (Crusty Town, Pizza, Molly). Police forces are still present all around, chasing people who try to build new barricades.

This is an urgent call-out for all kinds of support! What has happened the last two days is a massive attack! Because all the roads are cleared and passable for big machinery it’s important to protect the forest occupations NOW!

Come to the Hambach Forest, we need food, water, blankets and most of all more people with fresh energy!

Outcome (?) of the proceedings in March

3 trials
How did the continuation dates of Bergstedt, “Mr. Blue” and Basti run and how will it go on?

March 03 – Second trial date for allegedly insulting judge Witzel

Heard were judge Witzel (about 2 hours) and other judicial personnel. Judge in this trial was Königsfeld. In the end, the court stated that the process, which was performed by judge Witzel at that time, probably was not held in a way, as it is prescribed. But Königsfeld did not consider as proven that all this was already perversion of justice *.
He suggested a setting without conditions. This could not be decided in that moment because the representative of the prosecutor’s office in the hearing was not authorized to do so. So this will be settled in the next few days.
If the public prosecutor disagrees, then on March 22.3. at 11 am would be held a continued hearing.

This was apparently due to a bomb disposal. The bomb was not dangerous, so that the person who was at the time on Beech Town was not evacuated. Actually the police are depart. There was no confrontation.
