Wuppertal. Germany. Till Hermann Iseke, one of the managing directors of the family business “Limeworks Oetelshofen”, announced on January 31st in the TV show WDR Lokalzeit that he wants to “show an attitude” against forest squatters.

On political clowns and why we don’t need them [Osterholz Forest, Wuppertal, Germany]

Wuppertal. Germany. Black-Green (CDU and Greens) has reacted to the Osterholz court decision from the Higher Administrative Court in Münster. The CDU, the party for which one of the managing directors of the Oetelshofen lime works, Moritz Iseke, sat in the environmental committee of the city of Wuppertal until the last election (The thing to put the fox in charge of the henhouse), finds that after the court decision all must accept the further destruction of our livelihood. The Greens of Wuppertal seem to suffer from amnesia and state that forest protection unfortunately has no priority. Also the green mayor of Wuppertal, Uwe Schneidewind, has again and again the same memory gap in his announcements. Both forget again and again that the Wuppertal Greens were part of the majority in the Wuppertal City Council in 2019, which recommended the district government to uproot the Osterholz forest.
