HAMBACHER FOREST UPDATE!

COPS ARE INSIDE OF THE FOREST. They have decided to enter to clear the barricades. Multiple people are being arrested, The Meadow has been cordoned out and there are activists in tripods and monopods all over the place.

An activist has been found 5 meters deep underground chained up to a lock on.

This is your time to act. Wherever you are in the world, find an RWE target and cover it with paint, sabotage it, attack it in any way. If you are in Germany, hang an activist from a motorway bridge so climbing cops have to be diverted from the forest.

WE ARE ALL RESISTANCE.

HAMBI BLEIBT!!!!

HAMBACHER FOREST UPDATE!

The barricade eviction is underway. The police violence is increasing by the minute, almost all tripods and monopods have been evicted.

The arrestee tally goes up to 15 as of right now, but it will increase. There are random police controls around the forest where people have to undress. Someone came out of a search with injured ribs.

Meanwhile, the hole is still occupied by someone, although a generator and lights have been brought so it seems that the cops are going to dig for a lil while tonight.

We need people to be fighting in every corner of the world right now. Show the system that you do not agree with the massacre that the world will endure if we lose our trees and animals. FIGHT BACK.

NO COMPROMISE ON DEFENCE OF THE EARTH!

THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR YOUR SUPPORT! 

Over the past week, we have received a lot of donations. Sadly we didn’t reach out the amount we needed so we are gonna have to rearrange trips and miss out on a little bit of the adventures, but we will be still travelling and covering the major events!

It humbles us that so many people are willing to put a little bit of money so we can do our job. We cannot express how eternally grateful we truly are.

It is a strange life, in all honesty. Speaking as the travelling activist within the collective, I never know what’s going to happen next. I never know if I’ll be sleeping under a bridge one night and trying to dumpster dive in the worst supermarket of the area or if an activist will be picking me up from the bus stop and cooking the most delicious meal to then sleep on a sofa in the warm. It gives a chance to the adventure, but it also is a great opportunity to learn how to survive. I wouldn’t change it for anything.

In the next two months, we will visit about 5 countries to be on the front line and bring you the stories as they happen. We will give workshops, train activists, take action and help with infrastructure. We will answer many emails asking for direction in people’s activism and send multiple copies of our prisoner support list. We will do what we are supposed to do on the tightest budget possible because we fucking hate money. I will probably keep eating from the bins because food waste sucks and I will most likely sleep on a bench more than one night, but all that is THANKS to you. You enable us to be able to carry on doing all this. You are saving animals. You are fighting climate change. You are speaking up on gender issues and you are rejecting Nazi scum from neighbourhoods around Europe. You are empowering activists directly and indirectly to become a powerful tool against oppression. You are a fucking heroine!

If anyone feels empowered and capable of joining our Patreon, we would be truly grateful. Thank you again and SEE YOU IN THE NEXT RIOT.

HAMBI UPDATE! – UNOFFENSIVE REPORTS

After the cops threatening with barricade eviction and us waking up very early to have tofu sausages and a bit of fun with the “authorities” they didn’t turn up to play. What can we say, their lack of professionalism is tangible!

We have heard that hambis have been working hard reinforcing the entrances to the forest so that might be why they decided to prepare a little more. Who knows what the ecoterrorists have up their sleeve?!

They will come and we will be waiting for them with fun, games and a lot of creativity!

Until then… HAMBI BLEIBT!!

SEE YOU IN THE NEXT RIOT.

HAMBACHER FOREST UPDATE

 
It has been an interesting couple of weeks in the forest. With actions almost every day and sabotages being reported on multiple occasions, it surely has been a fun time in the forest during the winter holidays.
 
Unoffensive arrived a couple of days ago to find out that RWE was demolishing a (now ghost town) village close to the mine to be able to keep digging.
 
The locals were broken and disheartened, seeing the old church being demolished was something that none of them was expecting to happen.
 
The morning of the demolition, some activists from Greenpeace climbed the church and did a banner drop whilst Hambis occupied neighbouring rooftops to stop the machine from demolishing the buildings.
 
Sadly, the cops managed to take everybody down and RWE was allowed to carry on with their work.
 
Everybody was taken to the police station and later released without charges.
 
Meanwhile, the local filth has informed us that they are interested in evicting the barricades INSIDE of the forest and also that they would like to bring politicians from the parliament to visit the occupation. We cannot promise that they will have it easy.
 
THE STRUGGLE CONTINUES. WE ARE NOT GOING ANYWHERE.
 
HAMBI BLEIBT!

ON LOVING AND FIGHTING

I am aware that we have already published an end-of-the-year photo but this member of the collective has many things in their head.

We call ourselves anarchists and we call ourselves activists. We basically mean that we refuse hierarchies and that we can see a better world and that we will act to reach that world. We aren’t dreamers, we are warriors.

There is no doubt that the road is hard and that the work is not easy. We endure the fight. Day after day we stand up and oppose the oppression. Night after night we reach out to show the alternative. “There is no rest”, we say, and we actually mean it.

We fight. We get wet and walk on the mud and stay awake all night to keep guard. We force our fear to quiet down when a riot cop runs towards us. We submerge ourselves on missions that could make us lose our freedom for decades. We fight.

We fight with passion because we are warriors. We fight because without fighting we would not be able to change the world around us. We fight because we love.

It is only because we love that we have to fight. Only because we cannot see the suffering in front of us and keep passive. We only fight because we love.

Loving and fighting keep being my only focuses in life. So long as I love the Earth, so long as I love its inhabitants, so long as I love freedom, I will fight.

May your future bring you reasons to love and reasons to fight.

UNTIL THE NEXT RIOT.
