The police press conference today was about the operation in Dannenrod forest. According to their own statements, the logistic work of the police will start in the next few days and then the deforestation.
Today there was a lot of undefined police movement, which leads us to conclude that in the next few days the police operation will really start. The police allegedly want to set up a logistics center on a field near “Durchzug”.

Early in the morning there were at least 70 police vans in Dannenrod. In the morning, “Drüben” was cordoned off with barrier tape and in the camp, too, many police officers are present. Also in “Durchzug” police officers are observed, how they inspect structures and tree houses. Today the first barricade fell in “Drüben” and the ground eviction started. In “Drüben” the first people were taken from the trees.

This morning a person fell from a tripod from a height of 5 meters because the police had cut a safety rope. The person was responsive and was immediately treated by paramedics and taken to hospital. Today, too, there were eviction and logging operations in “Durchzug”. [Update November 16, 2020. The person that was severely injured during yesterdays eviction operations in Dannenrod forest is still in the hospital but doing okay (under the circumstances…), Enough 14]
The forest walk started with many people and wandered through the forest. Parallel to the eviction work in “Durchzug” the demonstration stopped and watched loudly the actions and evictions by the police.
