Dannenrod. Germany. „I beg you: Please refrain from any travel that is not really absolutely necessary […] Please stay at home, at your place of residence, whenever possible„, said Angela Merkel [1] on 17 October in her podcast [2].

#Dannenrod Forest Occupation: A story about eviction of #Woanders and more

Dannenrod. Germany. Day X was already 10 days ago and deforestation in the Dannenröder Forst is advancing every day. Today, the people in Woanders were evicted and the main structure destroyed.

When one of their special vehicles got stuck in the mud between the vigil camp and the police logistics center (mother ship), the state executive responded by driving up a bulldozer and later also a water cannon from Baden-Württemberg. The activists responded to this overdone action by the police with sit-in blockades and a barricade occupation, which resulted in the cops once again brutally pushing people around and also not letting their batons out of action.
