Protect forests and villages! Defend Osterholz Forest & ZAD Rhineland!

Wuppertal. Germany. Imagine there is a so-called climate election and none of the parties have a program with which the Paris 1.5 degree target can be achieved. This is exactly the case. Since we have nothing good to expect from this political circus in Berlin in relation to the climate issue, we have to stick to the fact that climate protection is handwork!

All trees still standing in the Osterholz forest [Haan/Wuppertal, Germany]

Haan. Wuppertal. Germany. The struggle for the Osterholz forest is entering its decisive phase.

Welcome to dystopia

Wuppertal. Germany. In the night of July 14th to 15th, the alarm sirens howled over Wuppertal. Howling sirens, a memory of the monthly exercises during the Cold War in the Netherlands. But this time it was not an exercise. A few fragmented thoughts written down during a night of emergency in Wuppertal.

Wuppertal, Germany: Autonomous May Day demonstration in Oberbarmen district sets colorful accents [Report and video]

Wuppertal. Germany. We have deliberately decided not to demonstrate in the northern part of the city today, the autonomous May Day in Wuppertal. If the cops think to besiege whole districts like the northern part of the city to nip any protest in the bud, we come together, self-determined, in other neighborhoods of the city to make our struggles visible there. We think that we should work out and try out more new concepts to see which paths we can take to be resistant and uncontrollable, to expand our scope of action and not let ourselves be controlled.

Wuppertal, Germany: Fireworks, barricades and paint – Angry spontaneous intervention against curfew

Wuppertal. Germany. Punctually at the start of the curfew at 10 p.m. on April 21, a small but determined spontaneous demo moved with smoke and fireworks in the Ölberg district in Wuppertal. Residents were informed with speeches about the critique against the curfew. Barricades were erected and the Ölberg district was covered in smoke with all colors of the rainbow. Unfortunately, we did not manage to block all the streets and the pigs found a way to spread out quite fast in the Ölberg district. We also did not manage to go into direct confrontation. Hopefully, a collective learning process has developed and we will manage to chase the pigs out of Ölberg in such situations in the future. Before the demo dispersed at Otto-Böhne-Platz, however, the adjacent Marien41 was covered with paint.
