Germany: Where do we go from here? – A report from the Danni protest camp

Dannenrod. Germany. The fight for the Danni is far from over. It is true that we – by this I mean all living organisms, human and non-human animals – have suffered heavy defeats through the loss of various habitats, and many may still not be aware of the consequences for society. But more and more people are becoming aware of the need for a change in our mobility and an ecological way of life.

Dannenrod Forest: Do We Have a Forest? The Need to Diversify our Tactics

Dannenrod. Germany. Currently in Mittelhessen we are losing forested areas and are quite understandably upset and angry. 6 weeks ago the cutting started and already the track of the proposed highway has cut kilometres through 2 forests and now attacks where the main occupation, Danni is. Those people here to safeguard this habitat have been putting their lives in danger, in situations in which cops cut ropes which secure them and have fallen metres to the ground, they have been beaten off of machines and some tortured in custody (Gesa). Let us remind that the police is an apparatus of the state invented to protect private property, and this is what many of us here at Danni are fundamentally against. We are here rather for the common good, clean water, air, natural ecosystems, community, shelter. To own something is to take care of it, what the state rather does is take possession to control and we oppose. We write this article in order to clearly communicate the means necessary to arrive at the ultimate goal of forests that stay and regenerate, and a highway project that gets composted into a tale of a nonsense that could have happened.
