Man fell from tree and died – Activists demand immediate stop of police operation in #HambacherForest

Statement by Hambi Bleibt activists after a friend of the activists died earlier today.

Originally published by Hambi Bleibt. Translated by Enough is Enough

A friend who has accompanied us journalistically for a long time in the forest today fell from a plank bridge over 20 meters high in Beechtown and died. At the time police and RWE tried to clear the tree house village. The SEK was in the process of arresting an activist near the plank bridge. The man was apparently on the way there when he fell.

We are deeply shocked. All our thoughts and wishes are with him. Our compassion goes to all the relatives, friends and people who feel affected. We urge the police and RWE to leave the forest immediately and stop this dangerous operation. No further lives may be endangered. What is needed now is a moment of calmness.
