Seit fast genau 4 Jahren ist der Hambacher Forst im Rheinischen-Braunkohlerevier bei Köln besetzt. Dies ist ein Zeichen um die gefräßigen Bagger der Braunkohleindustrie zu stoppen und somit auch ein Zeichen für eine besseres Klima und einen Systemwandel. Für direkten Widerstand braucht es Menschen mit vielfältigen Fähigkeiten und kreativen Ideen um der Repressionsmacht ein Schritt voraus zu sein.
Deshalb laden wir alle zum Skill Sharing Camp vom 25. März bis 3. April 2016 ein, um sich 10 Tage lang gegenseitig Fähigkeiten beizubringen, erlernen und auszuprobieren.

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 unoccupied occupations were evicted (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!
