Wuppertal. Germany. There are many kinds of barricades in this world. Most of these barricades are built by capitalism. This economic system has thrown up a massive barricade against efforts to save our planet. The Oetelshofen company is also a master in building barricades. Their barricade consists, among other things, of 5 hectares of forest that they want to clear for their waste. It is a barricade against the life of trees, plants and animals in the Osterholz forest. Birds, fire salamanders, trees and wild orchids will have to give way for Oetelshofen’s greed for profit. When the forest is cleared, they will build a new giant barricade, which they will call a dump. It will be dozens of meters high.Continue reading Osterholz Forest Occupation, Wuppertal, Germany: About barricades and other inconveniences

Wuppertal. German territory. On August 15, 2019 the Osterholz forest in Vohwinkel, a district of Wuppertal, was occupied. We experienced many wonderful moments in the beautiful forest. And although we know that human ideas cannot be evicted, we unfortunately experience again and again that representatives of the old world try to do this again and again. Like it happened for example last year in the Hambach forest. That didn’t bring anything, because after the eviction many people immediately reoccupied the beautiful forest in the Rhineland. But no matter whether it is in the Hambach Forest, the Osterholz Forest or the Mattole Forest in California, forest squatters should always be prepared for clearing.Continue reading What to do in case of an eviction in the #Osterholz forest?
