It is of no surprise that RWE workers took all fire extinguishers they could find last week. This morning, police is everywhere. Gallien is surrounded by cops, Oaktown doesn’t seem to have any police presence and monopods and tripods are starting to be vacated. Heavy machinery on the other hand is stuck at the entrance of the forest. It is raining, and thanks to the past attacks by the police there is more mud than green on the ground. The...

The idea is simple,...

SOLIDARITY WITH THE J20 DEFENDANTS

  20th January, 2018. On January 20th, 2017, tens of thousands of protesters welcomed Donald Trump’s Inauguration Day with blockades, protests and militant actions. As a result, the state arrested 230 people and 200 of them were later charged with “property destruction”, “inciting a riot”, “conspiracy to riot” and “taking part in a riot”. This means that each one of these people is facing 61 years in prison. A call to action has been announced for the 20th of January, 2018, to show solidarity with the defendants. Banner drops, graffiti, anti-capitalist stalls,...
