As Hambi Comrades have now been thrown into a jail for going on a month, not just in record numbers and for charges such as not identifying themselves and obstructing police for which all before were release pending trial.
This weekend a large scale celebration and mobilization took place in Zad. Several Thousands formed two marches, one through Zad and the second one through the surrounding villages, both of which joined in the center of Zad.
After the release of 5 people, the Hambi 9 are now Hambi 4. But it looks like the German state will keep the Hambi 4 people much longer. An update.

On January 22, the police tried in vain to clear the occupied barricades in the forest with an expensive action. Even the attempt to present the “violent ecoterrorists” to the present regional deputies of the SPD and AfD failed. For our resistance is colorful, courageous and broader than ever. Nevertheless, now 9 climate activists are in custody. They are accused of resistance to law enforcement officers. For opposing their bodies to the evacuation machines. For having decided to peacefully but firmly demonstrate against lignite mining and for a climate-friendly world. Never before in the history of this forest occupation, so many activists were imprisoned at the same time.

Yesterday we reported about the decision by the French government to abandon plans to build an airport in Notre-Dame-des-Landes. Today we publish an open letter by Some squatters of the zad (Monday, January 15, 2018).
Common press release from the anti-airport movement following the government’s announcement.
Today’s walk in the Forest has attracted over 400 people reflecting a wave of popular support sweeping not just the region but all of Germany and from around the world. This is happening at the time when the rulling parties are no loger able or willing to hold an argument on exiting from coal and its effects on the climate but istead have become an extension of RWE special interests and are trying to redirect attention and justify large police actions to destroy the last of Hambi by talk of extremism and violence.
