(en) Poland, rozbrat: The fight in the Bialowieza Primeval Forest is getting stronger. The Poznan activist has been beaten [machine translation]

Date Tue, 19 Sep 2017 10:01:45 +0300


The Forest Guard beat one of the Poznan activists associated with the Anarchist Federation blocking the cut in the Bialowieza Forest. He was hospitalized. Below we publish his account. ---- On Monday, September 11, the Court of Justice of the European Union held a hearing on the issue of imposing sanctions on Poland for a cut in the Bialowieza Primeval Forest. Judge Jan Szyszko stood before the court. All those who were in the Forest at that time, and people observing this situation in the whole country, expected that this would be a landmark day in the topic of the defense of the Forest. We hoped that Szyszko would later recall and withdraw the harvesters together with the Forest Guard from the forest, not wanting to pay all the costs of his plan to fight the bark, and indeed his pensive ego, ordering him to fight the environmentalists. I want to win this fight at all costs so as not to suffer another defeat like Rospuda. In order to do so, it draws the strength of the Forest Guard from all the Regional Directorates of State Forests in the country,

But reality surprised us. Already on Tuesday morning, we found very active activity of both tree cutting machines and tirers exporting them to the furthest corners of the country, where due to their extremely low price they are converted into euro pallets. We managed to block their Tuesday activities through a peaceful picket under the machines, so they were forced to return to the base. After checking the area, it turned out that hundreds of centuries-old spruces, centuries-old oaks, went under the saw. This is also the area where we have heard the earl and the three-fingered woodpecker.

On Wednesday, September 13, the situation was repeated and the machines once again went to the place to finish the carnage of the trees. We decided to act. About 10 o'clock we entered the forest passing a few blocking the entrance of the guards. We ran the forest towards the point where the harvester and the forwarder were standing (in which the tree was removed from the forest and placed in storage for further loading into the tiry). At some point as a result of confusion I saw a gap between the guards and decided to use it to reach the forwarder and pin it. Half a meter from the machine I was brutally knocked to the ground by two guards, who almost knocked me down on the stacked stacks in the storage yard after which I ran. I hit the head with one of them. Later they jumped on me and began to shovel me into the ground with my shoes and knees. At all costs they wanted to take me a tube that I had in hand. At first, they dropped me a camera so that nothing would be registered. One twice hit my head with a trunk. Another pressed my thumbs around the jaw and throat, causing pain to release the tube. They set levers on fingers, hands, shoulders, and legs. All this took a few minutes. During this time they did not respond to my requests to stop. Having determined that they would not be able to manage the four they moved me on the path, pulling my chest across the lying trunks, where they threw face to mud and nettles. One stood in my hand, on which I had a tube, the other put a very painful lever on the shoulder, and the third knee pressed his head to the ground, so that I had nothing to breathe. After a long time came another commander, whom ordered me to bring up and brought lost while knocked me to the ground things: phone, camera, whose donation I could not get any earlier. At my request was called ambulance, which took me to the hospital. I was taken there by arm X-ray, head tomography, and hooked under the drip. After a few hours I was pronounced with head injuries in the form of: head injuries and wrist and hand injuries. Tomography showed subcutaneous hematoma / bony fracture on the left frontal bone, and an uneven outline of the left frontal bone scales with uneven plaque.

Violence was affecting more people. People were handcuffed to a rope tied around trees, tarraged on the ground, sexist cries were used against girls, etc. This is not the first such situation. Already in previous actions I was in life-threatening situations. Once the forest guards cut off the rope on which I hung on the tree at about 10 m. Another time the forwarder operator tried to scour us when the four tried to block it. Since he did not stop, I jumped on his mask while driving. After all, he did not stop and continued riding violently turning the engine on the road and entering the branches to dump me. Only after several hundred meters of "trips" I managed to safely jump to the ground. Another participant in the protest had a knife cut, After one of the guards tried to cut off the rope to which he was pinned. And that's all in recent weeks.

The forest guard is a completely unprepared formation for such situations. He has powers like the police, armed with telescopic batons, gauntlets, pistols, but not prepared for how to behave in a peaceful protest (and I recall that all shares are of such character). This creates a threat to the health and life of the participants in the protest. It is also evident that they are more and more in a hurry to cut and remove timber, which causes more of them (even about 70 from all over Poland) are increasingly brutal and ruthless. By the pride of one man on a stool - Cisse - one day in the Forest can come to a tragedy.

We now have a few days until the final decision of the TS, which foresters will certainly try to use as much as possible. We in the Wilderness do everything in every field to stop the cut. We will not do this without you. Organize everywhere pickets, actions, demonstrations, benefits for the Forest Camp. We will not be able to win this battle without raising it to the level of social protest. Do not make yourself believe that we are acting against the local population, because our work (and the simultaneous operation of machines in the woods) is increasingly against mucking (including local pimps). Come to the Camp if you have time. On-site support is also needed. Join the Poznan team against the Hunt (and others), operate locally. Any form of resistance against Shelly is important.
Let's continue on, showing that we will not let the ruins of endangered species be destroyed. If we give them a win here, they will destroy the last traces of wildlife everywhere, turning one third of the country (which is managed by the State Forests) into an economic forest.

We do not forget the

whole wilderness of the National Park!
