Presentation about the occupation of the Hambacher forest and call for mobilization!

Thursday September 19th 2013, Presentation about the occupation of the Hambacher Forest and call for mobilization! The same evening at Joe’s Garage, Cardiff Squatters Network Infonight. With the Volkseten Vegazulu, 7pm.

The Hambacher forest close to Cologne in Germany is now again occupied since a few weeks, wherefore the resistance movement against the clearing of the forest goes on. The new squatted area is now threatened by eviction, so that support in occupying the forest, infrastructural matters (e.g. cooking), presswork, etc. is needed. Furthermore the Hambacher forest represents a nice place to connect political activism with spending a good time with nice people!

In order to excavate coal, the energy company RWE clears the originally more than 4500 hectars big and 12000 years old forest, damages agricultural land and relocates villages Some of the effects of the excavation of coal are the destruction of living space for plants, animals and humans, air and fine dust pollution, release of radioactive substances and the lowering of ground water. The coal excavation in the rhine area is responsible for 13% of the CO2 emissions in whole Germany.
