In Morschenich, a village next to the Hambach forest, a house and a tree were occupied. Like many villages in the Rhenish lignite mining area, Morschenich is also threatened by demolition. The majority of the inhabitants of these villages have already been resettled and the demolition of the houses has begun.
Note: Enough 14 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.

Morsenich, Hambacher Forest: The village is, as many villages nearby, threatend to be destroyed for the lignite-mine of RWE. The majority of inhabitants, that were used to live in those villages, have already been kicked out and some houses are already teared down.
We want to fight RWEs controll on the houses and turn them into spaces were people can live, organize and connect. We think that houses should be for the use of the people living there, not for the profit of a company.
It cant be accepted that here is a leck of flats and livingplaces while RWE expropriate houses in order to destroy them. This destruction is legalized and supported by the state and the police.
The consequences are not only local, but global. Burning lignite is pushing further the global climate warming.
We stand in solidarity with other occupations, no matter if its RWEs infrastructure, house or forest.
Its the same fight.
We cant count on the desicions of politcians, but do it ourselves to create a world where noone has the power to destroy the local area and communitys and the global climate.
We want to invite everyone to come arround and share their struggle and idears.
There will be a party in the garden, today (22th of april) at 15 h.
