On Wednesday 7th October, a person blockaded one of the conveyor belts in the Hambach mine. When this belt stops, the diggers stop moving and the trains cannot be filled with coal. This mine is the second biggest open cast mine of Europe, and the Rhineland area is the biggest CO2 emmitter in Europe.
It has been reported that this person was beaten by both security and police, and was left with a broken wrist, bruises and an injured eye.
Photos were allegedly taken of him at 5 different actions, in which he was allegedly involved. He is being accused of assault – after allegedly biting a security guard – trespassing, 'disturbing of public enterprises', and of resisting and insulting police officers.
This person is currently refusing to give his identity for fears that they will not let him go if he complies. He is being kept locked up until the court case, which as seen before with Jus can take two or three months.
We are fucking sick and tired of being harassed, hurt, beaten by cops and securities, and when we are taken we are charged with harrassing them, just so that they can put us in a fucking cage in an attempt to discourage and scare us. It seems to be their tactic of fear, trying to scare us out of continuing the fight against the radical, criminal, terrorist enterprise called RWE, and of course, the Mean Monster of Greed, called Capitalism.
We are not discouraged. We are not intimidated. Every time you beat us we will help each other crawl back up. And we know who the people and structures are to be held accountable. With every beat of the bat you will beat our ideas deeper into our hearts and minds.
The person in jail does not have a address to send letters to yet, we will communicate this address as quickly as possible. The person would also really love to receive some money for cigarettes. We will communicate how to give this to him in our next update.
Burn all prisons, burn cops not coal
freedom to all prisoners
