#HambacherForest: German tabloid fantasizes about “the ‘violence university’ of the Hambach activists”

It could be that soon parachute-jumping rabbits, turtles with rifles and dogs with cannons attack the police on or in the Hambacher Forest.

Originally published by Hambi Bleibt.

Note: Enough is Enough is not organizing any of these events, we are publishing this text for people across the US and Europe to be able to see what is going on and for documentation only.

It is also possible that the ants with their pit helmets are there and demonstrate for civil rights, and the bats make it clear once more on their banners that there is nothing to sell. “Bild-Zeitung” and its editor Peter Poensgen are certainly on the track of a very hot thing.


From the Bild-Zeitung – Caption: A group from the scene of forest occupiers is studying a kind of battle plan against the police
(found on bildblog.de)

The picture and caption are from an article that was published last Friday in the Düsseldorf edition of “Bild”. And also Bild.de shows it, with a slightly different line underneath: “The scene of violence Hambach Forest: Strategies against the police are planned on the basis of a huge map.”

Headline in the online version: “The ‘Violence University’ of the Hambach activists” (which already in the first sentence of the article is called “almost like a university for violence and rioting”). By which they mean the skill-sharing camps where activists also impart skills to other activists that may be useful for civil disobedience.

So during one of these camps, a man is standing by a large billboard, allegedly planning “strategies against the police” with his audience. But the “huge map” is not suitable at all for that. For it is a print of the hidden object picture “The True Cost of Coal”, drawn by the Beehive Design Collective. This network of artists provides activists with large illustrations for their work, for example in skill-sharing camps. On the copy shown by “Bild” and Bild.de, you can find the parachute jumping hare, the turtle with the rifle, the dog with the cannon, the ant with the pit helmet, the bat with the protest plate and many other animals, whose habitat is destroyed by coal mining, excavators and bulldozers.

This is the “scene of violence Hambach Forest”, which “Bild” calls out.

PS: The next skillshare will tak place from April 12th to 24th, 2019 in the forest and meadow.
