(en) Czech afed: Aloud for Hambach -- Climate Protest Report at the German Embassy in Prague

Date Wed, 10 Oct 2018 11:34:57 +0300


On Thursday 4 October, Collective 115 and the Limits Initiative, we were demonstrating before the headquarters of the German Embassy in Prague to express their disagreement with RWE's intention to expand brown coal mining in the Rhineland, to the detriment of the Hampshire Forest, and with the German police doing this corporation de facto private protection and violently goes against the defenders of the forest. ---- The date of the protest was not chosen at random, just on that day the embassy celebrated the anniversary of the reunification of the country, the so-called German Unity Day. It was therefore a good opportunity to show even before the eyes of the diplomats who came to the celebration that although Germany in its energy policy outwardly faces very progressively, reality is somewhat lagging behind.

The event began at about 5:30 pm, and about six dozen people arrived at it, dominated by the huge Hambi bleibt. Participants behind the metal barrier had a sign with signs such as "Solidarity with Hambach Forest Occupation", "Fuck RWE", "Coal Below Ground", "RWE in Hambach do not Want," or "Hamba Germany" in our hands.

He managed to talk to the embassy representative for ten minutes, explain the reasons for the protest and ask for their interpretation to the German government. Subsequently, the speeches were echoed at the event interleaved by the chanting and sounding of the sounds of the bucket. The organizers' representative was acquainted with the state of Hampshire's struggle and rejected the dogma that coal under the forest is inviolable private property, since it is being burned by millions of people around the world. Collective member 115 mentioned that the rescue of the forest is supported by about 70% of the population of Germany. Janek Rovenský spoke about Greenpeace, who had been protesting for a few days in the trees of Hambaš Forest. He remembered the parallel with the memory of the demolished village of Libkovice. Jiri Koželuh of the Duh Movement focused on German energy policy and mentioned local efforts to work beyond limits. Experienced environmental cartoonist Honza Piños has noted that the German Unity Day is one of the most extensive police operations against people who protect the climate and nature. We have emphasized that the struggle in Hambach is also a battle for global social justice.

The latest report: The Supreme Court in Münster has banned felling in Hambach, RWE must not reach the Hampshire until the court has ruled on a lawsuit of the German organization Bund - Friends of the Earth. At the same time, it is assumed that the court will cover at least a year or two. Coal under the woods will remain below ground, RWE shares fall 10.8%.
