Today, on the 18th of May, our forest occupation in the Lusatian lignite mining region is being evicted by the police. Here you can find the most current information:

§315b section 3 is supposed to be the reason for their bail hearing, a paragraph dealing with dangerous interference with road traffic. This has allegedly happened in the context of Ende Gelaende.

Most likely, two more people are going to be shown to the magistrate tomorrow. The identities of both persons are known, both are non-german citizens.

3:00 pm
There is a new blog entry in which you can find all dates of solidarity demonstrations we know of. If you also organised something please let us know so that we can add it to the list!

solifinnlandFor more than a whole year now, activists in Finland resist the building process of a new nuclear power plant – with an occupation. During an action week (22.4. until 1st of May), police evicted and crushed both camps there. They used massive violence against activists, who mostly could flee into the woods. There were dozens of arrests, from which some still continue. Continue reading Solidarity with “Stop Fennovoima”‘s struggle against Nuclear Power!

Invitation to the Forest-Week

WaldwocheSince the beginning of march 2016, the cutting area next to the open cast mine Nochten has been occupied. With this occupation, called LAUtonomia, we want to create a hub of resistance in the Lusatian lignite mining area, a place where we can meet, talk and plan. Lignite, animal exploitation, militarism – a lot of constructs that keep the greed machine called capitalism running can be found and fought in the lusatia area.
