Hambacher Forst, February 1st 2019
Set climate killers on flames
In the early morning hours of February 1st 2019, a group of activists successfully sabotaged two electrical boxes of RWE Power AG near the open-pit lignite mine Hambach (NRW, Germany). With prepared incendiary devices, the boxes` electrics were irreparably damaged. The electrical boxes all around the 8×6 km mine provide electricity to pump the ground water in the whole area 450 meters below ground level – with severe consequences for flora and fauna, as the bordering Hambach forest, a forest that is thousands of years old and gives home to numerous rare and protected species.
With this action, we achieved not only to destroy part of RWE`s infrastructure directly, but also wanted to continue to cost the company money for replacements. Further, steady militant actions keep RWE`s security and the cops busy and express our resistance against climate killers, forest cutting and the criminalisation and ongoing evictions in the now seven-years old anarchist occupation in Hambach forest. Increasing repression won`t silence us and we will not be intrigued by “political” solutions, once again confirmed by the latest “solutions” by Berlin`s co2al commission. We demand:
– freedom for #FreeEule, the remaining three imprisoned people from #lausitz23 and all other prisoners!
– solidarity with the occupation in Hambach forest!
– the immediate from lignite mining and
– an end to the violent exploitation of our planet – climate justice now!
The action took place within the context of various militant actions around lignite mining and the Hambach mine in the last years that we stand in solidarity with.
