Updates about prisoners in Pyhäjoki and their treatment by the police (Finland) [en, fi]

Source: Stop Fennovoima

Reclaim the Cape -action week took place in Pyhäjoki from 22 April to 1 May of 2016 and dozens of people where detained by the police, 11 activists were arrested. (see the link). Five of them were released in a few days after the detention. After this, six activists were still kept in remand prison. One activist still remains in prison.

We have sent money, clean clothes, toothbrushes and toothpaste, cigarettes, books etc. to the prisoners as much as we’ve been able. However, the prisoners haven’t received all packages from their parents or other senders. They also haven’t been able to send or receive letters or postcards.

During the imprisonment of the activists the police hasn’t offered legal facilities for the prisoners. Police says that there hasn’t been resources for example for cleaning cells and in the first few days of imprisonment the prisoners didn’t have possibility to wash up and they didn’t have toilet paper or proper food. Also the prisoners didn’t get outside as much as the legal rights would allow.

On Friday 6th May there was detention trial of two of the activists. Lawyer described this to be a total lynching and the trial was kept without the prosecutor, only the police was present there. Surprisingly the imprisonment continued. These prisoners were released on Tuesday 10.5., but they are still suspected for violent rioting and violently resisting the police. Any charges have not been pressed yet. After these two activists got out from the prison, unfortunately we got information that the police has been bullying the one activist who is still in prison in the middle of the night.

On Thursday 12th May two activists have been released from the remand prison and one activist on Friday 13.5., but one activist is still imprisoned. Finally, the police has cleaned up the cell after many days of pressure on them about the issue. They also finally let the prisoner outside. At the moment this prisoner has nothing big to complain about the prison facilities, says their lawyer.

Only the closest family and the lawyer have been allowed to visit or have phone calls with the prisoners. Of course for the prisoners whose parents live outside of Finland this hasn’t been possible because of the distances. The prisoners haven’t received all books that have been sent to the police for them. Our lawyer said, that’s unprecedented and unthinkable.

The prisoners who don’t speak finnish have been forced to speak English with their family, even though they could speak in Swedish. Anyhow, Swedish is the second official language of Finland, that fact doesn’t exist “in the Finnish Northern-Ostrobothnia” according to the police.

There has been also other ways of repression. Two camps got evicted and we are still working on if it happened on the legal way. Police has destroyed the camps by leaving a huge mess behind them. Activists were forced to leave the area before all equipment and personal items were collected which has lead to the situation that a lot of stuff is missing. Police said, that all stuff will be found from Pyhäjoki municipality (later we found out that it means landfill in practise) and Raahe police station, where we haven’t found any of the lost stuff yet.

On Monday 16th May there was detention trial and the court decided to continue the imprisonment of the activist. The only explanation for the continued imprisonment was that the activist might try to avoid the trial.

The lawyer argued that this is not sufficient enough ground for the continued imprisonment, because all other activists living permanently abroad have already been released. Neither the court nor the police responded to or commented this argument. Charges must be pressed at the latest on Tuesday 31 May, but it is possible that the prosecutor will do it earlier. In the worst case the trial will not be before mid June. The activist is suspected for violent rioting and violently resisting the police. In other words, the suspections are not more aggravated in the case of this activist than the activists who have already been released.

All documents have now been sent to the prosecutor, and the prosecutor will receive them later during this week. That the documents have been sent means that the police investigation is over. In addition to deciding whether to press the charges, the prosecutor can freely decide whether the activist will be released or not.

The treatment of the activist during the imprisonment has been more adequate since last Friday. Before that the cell was not cleaned at all.

On Friday 13th May the communication ban was cancelled. This has enabled longer phone calls with the family, calls to friends and receiving and sending letters and postcards. On Monday 16 May we delivered more books and snuff to the prisoner.

At the moment a lot of different support actions are needed! Organise a support cafe or a demonstration in your city, take part in solidarity actions or travel to the camp to show that the resistance will not end by locking up the activists.

Comrades around the world – now is the time to act!

Finnish:

Pyhäjoella järjestetyn Reclaim the Cape -toimintaviikon 22.4.-1.5.2016 aikana kiinniotettiin kymmeniä ja pidätettiin 11 ihmistä. Näistä viisi päästettiin vapaaksi jo muutaman päivän päästä kiinniotosta. Tämän jälkeen jäi vielä yhteensä kuusi aktivistia tutkintavankeuteen. Yksi aktivisti on vangittuna vielä tälläkin hetkellä.

Tänään maanantaina 16.5. Pyhäjoella vangitun aktivistin vangitsemisoikeudenkäynnissä päätettiin jatkaa vankeutta. Perusteena vangitsemiselle on ainoastaan se, että vangittu saattaisi pakoilla oikeudenkäyntiä. Asianajajan mukaan tämä ei ole riittävä peruste, koska kaikki muutkin ulkomailla vakituisesti asuvat aktivistit on vapautettu. Asiaa ei tuomioistuimen tai poliisin taholta kommentoitu mitenkään. Syyte pitää nostaa viimeistään 31.5. mennessä, mutta on mahdollista että se nostetaan aiemmin. Pahimmassa tapauksessa oikeudenkäynti on vasta kesäkuun puolivälissä. Aktivistia epäillään virkamiehen väkivaltaisesta vastustamisesta ja väkivaltaisesta mellakasta, joten epäilyt eivät ole sen raskauttavampia kuin jo vapautetuilla aktivisteilla.

Asian siirtyminen syyttäjälle tarkoittaa, että poliisitutkinta asiassa on päättynyt ja mahdollinen vapauttaminen on nyt syyttäjän vapaassa harkinnassa. Asiakirjat ovat syyttäjällä kuitenkin vasta myöhemmin tämän viikon kuluessa.

Perjantaina 13.5. poistettiin yhteydenpitokiellon rajoitus ja se on mahdollistanut pidemmät puhelut perheen kanssa, puhelut kavereiden kanssa ja kirjeiden sekä postikorttien vastaanottamisen ja lähettämisen. Toimitimme myös tänään 16.5. vangitulle nuuskaa ja lisää aatteellista lukemista.

Nyt tarvitaan paljon tukitapahtumia! Järjestä kakkukahvila tai mielenosoitus paikkakunnallasi, osallistu tukitapahtumiin tai lähde leirille näyttämään, että vastarinta ei tule tyrehtymään sillä, että aktivisteja laitetaan telkien taakse!

Päivittää 16/17.5

Kun poliisi huhtikuun lopussa tuhosi Pyhäjoen protestileirit, se perusteli resurssipulalla sitä, että poliisit antoivat ihmisille aikaa kerätä vain osan tavaroistaan. Resursseja riitti kymmenien poliisien ja rajavartiolaitoksen yhteiseen suuroperaatioon. Ne loppuivat kesken silloin, kun olisi pitänyt olla hävittämättä leireillä olleiden ihmisten yksityistä ja yhteistä omaisuutta.

Perjantaina 29.4. poliisi tuhosi leirit ja ilmoitti, että kaikki arvotavara olisi myöhemmin noudettavissa Raahen poliisiasemalta ja muu omaisuus varastoitaisiin johonkin Pyhäjoen kunnan tilaan, josta sitä voisi myöhemmin tiedustella. Tämän tiedon poliisit kertoivat useita kertoja useille ihmisille.

Tosiasiassa poliisit rikkoivat ja siirtelivät telttoja katsomatta ensin, mitä niissä on sisällä, eli ottamatta niistä esimerkiksi lompakoita ja passeja talteen ensin.

Lisäksi poliisi on julkisuudessa valheellisesti tiedottanut, että ihmisille annettiin mahdollisuus koota henkilökohtaiset tavaransa leireistä. Edes kaikki leireissä paikalla olleet eivät saaneet ottaa mukaan kaikkia omia tavaroitaan, eikä heillä, jotka eivät häädön hetkellä olleet paikalla siinä leirissä, jossa heidän tavaransa olivat, ollut mitään mahdollisuutta kerätä omaisuuttaan.

Lauantaina 30.4. Raahen poliisiasemalta tiedusteltiin useita häädössä kadonneita lompakkoja, passeja, avaimia, puhelimia ja muuta arvotavaraa. Kävi ilmi, ettei poliisi ollut tuonut asemalle kummastakaan leiristä mitään.

Poliisi kehotti omaisuuttaan kaipaavia ihmisiä menemään etsimään kadonneita tavaroita leireistä. Vajaata vuorokautta aiemmin he olivat häätäneet samat ihmiset samoista paikoista kiinnioton uhalla. Poliisi sanoi, että jos tavaroita ei löytyisi leireistä, niitä olisi tiedusteltava Pyhäjoen kunnan varikolta.

Kun Pyhäjoen kunnan varikon sijaintia maanantaina 2.5. kysyttiin Pyhäjoen kunnasta, selvisi, ettei mitään varikkoa ole olemassa. Paikka, jonne tavaroita oli poliisin käskystä viety, oli maankaatopaikka: avoin, vartioimaton maanläjitysalue. Poliisilta saatiin vahvistus, että he olivat käskeneet kunnan työntekijöitä kuljettamaan tavarat sinne.

Maankaatopaikalta löytyikin jonkin verran leirien rakennustavaraa, yksittäisiä vaatekappaleita ja kasseja sekä vähän ruokaa. Kuormissa oli kuitenkin vielä läjitysalueelle vietäessä ollut ainakin telttoja ja polkupyöriä, Pyhäjoen kunnasta vahvistettiin. Maanantai-aamuna niitä ei enää ollut siellä.

Poliisi totesi, että kuka tahansa on voinut ottaa tavarat läjitysalueelta, kehotti tavaransa kadottaneita ihmisiä tekemään rikosilmoituksen ja ilmoitti samalla, etteivät nämä rikosilmoitukset todennäköisesti johda mihinkään.

Tiistaina 3.5. Raahen poliisiasemalta edelleen kehotettiin tavaroitaan kaipaavia ihmisiä etsimään niitä ”Pyhäjoen kunnan varikolta”. Kertoo jotain informaation kulkemisesta poliisiorganisaation sisällä, että varikko, jota ei alun alkaenkaan ole ollut olemassa, elää poliisin antamissa ohjeissa vielä neljä päivää häädön jälkeen.

Samana päivänä ihmisiä kävi jälleen etsimässä tavaroitaan maankaatopaikalta. Se oli kuitenkin jo myöhäistä, sillä kaatopaikalla oli jostain syystä ryhdytty polttamaan tavaraa. Kasoissa vielä jäljellä olleet vaatteet ja kassit paloivat silloin.

Leirien häädöissä poliisi rikkoi ja kadotti omaisuutta yhteensä useiden tuhansien eurojen arvosta. Joukossa oli kaikkea lompakoista, passeista ja avaimista telttoihin, vaatteisiin ja makuupusseihin. Vain pieni osa poliisin hukkaamista tavaroista on päätynyt Raahen poliisiasemalle noudettavaksi. Poliisi ohittaa omaisuuden suojan kaltaiset omaa toimintansa ohjaavat perusperiaatteet silloin, kun niistä ei ole hyötyä Fennovoima-Rosatomin soramontulle.

Reclaim The Cape – action week (22.4 – 1.5.2016) [en, fi, se, it]

In the end of April 2016 it will be a year since Fennovoima started to prepare areas of Hanhikivi cape for the new nuclear power plant construction in Northern Finland. At the same time the protest camp against Fennovoima celebrates its first anniversary. The camp was able to stay inside the construction area over five months and was able to slow down the construction works. During the summer, dozens of blockades took place and newspapers wrote about various sabotages. In September, after the eviction that lasted eight days, the camp moved outside the construction site to continue its activities with help of local supporters. Blockades and other activity against nuclear power did not stop at any point.

In the end of April we are going to return to the construction site. The aim is to paralyze the whole construction site, for a long time. With a big enough group we can reoccupy the area and stay there. We don’t only want to occupy the area back but also fill the surrounding areas with activities against Fennovoima, nuclear power, destruction of nature and capitalism, and by respecting the plurality of tactics.

Come and join us to make this possible. Come to share your knowhow in a workshop or to learn from the more experienced, and start your summer with numerous comrades in the middle of nature just awaking for the spring.

The event starts on Friday 22 April with a party continuing over the weekend. The following week will be filled with action and workshops, sharing knowledge and knowhow, getting to know new comrades along with action. On Tuesday 26 April it will be thirty years from Chernobyl accident – symbolically perfect moment to stop a new nuclear project. On Chernobyl Day various organizations will carry out their protests and we will also do our part. The event will climax next weekend to the First of May when the aim is to organize an all-time riotous First of May party of Northern Finland. In the nearby cities marches for First of May are also organize and we can join them too.

Huhtikuun lopussa 2016 tulee kuluneeksi tasan vuosi siitä, kun Fennovoima aloitti uuden ydinvoimala-alueen valmistelutyöt Hanhikivenniemellä Pohjois-Suomessa. Samaan aikaan juhlii Fennovoiman vastainen protestileiri yksivuotispäiviään. Leiri onnistui pysymään työmaa-alueen sisäpuolella yli viisi kuukautta ja onnistui todella viivästyttämään rakennustöitä. Alueella oli kesän aikana kymmeniä blokkauksia ja lehdet kirjoittivat lukuisista sabotaaseista. Syyskuussa tapahtuneen, kahdeksan päivää kestäneen häädön jälkeen leiri siirtyi työmaa-alueen ulkopuolelle jatkamaan toimintaansa paikallisten tukijoiden vahvalla avustuksella. Blokkaukset ja muu toiminta ydinvoimaa vastaan ei loppunut missään vaiheessa.

Huhtikuun lopulla aiomme palata joukolla työmaalle. Tarkoituksena lamauttaa työmaa kokonaan, pitkäksi aikaa. Tarpeeksi suurella joukolla voimme ottaa alue haltuumme ja pysyä alueella. Haluamme vallata alueen takaisin, mutta myös täyttää koko lähiseudun Fennovoiman, ydinvoiman-, ympäristön tuhoamisen- ja kapitalisminvastaisella toiminnalla, taktiikoiden monimuotoisuutta kunnioittaen.

Tule mukaan tekemään tämä mahdolliseksi, tule jakamaan taitosi työpajassa tai oppimaan kokeneemmilta, viettämään mahtava kesän aloitus lukuisten tovereiden kanssa juuri heräämässä olevan luonnon keskelle.

Tapahtuma alkaa perjantaina 22.4. viikonlopun kestävillä juhlilla, ja juhlien jälkeinen viikko täytetään toiminnalla ja työpajoilla, taitojen ja tietojen jakamisella ja uusiin tovereihin tutustumisella toiminnan ohessa. Tiistai 26.4 on Tšernobylin 30-vuotispäivä – symbolisesti täydellinen hetki pysäyttää uusi ydinvoimalahanke. Tšernobyl-päivänä useat järjestöt tulevat tekemään omat protestinsa ydinvoimaa vastaan ja me aiomme myös tehdä osamme. Tapahtuma huipentuu seuraavana viikonloppuna vappuun, jolloin tavoitteena on järjestää kautta aikain Pohjois-Suomen riehakkaimmat vappujuhlat. Lähikaupungeissa järjestetään myös vappumarsseja, joihin voimme osallistua.

I slutet av April 2016 kommer det att ha gått ett år sedan Fennovoima började förbereda områdena på Hanhikiviudden för det nya kärnkraftverksbygget i Norra Finland. Samtidigt firar protestlägret mot Fennovoima sin första årsdag.
Lägret stannade i byggnadsområdet för över fem månader och bromsade byggnadsarbetena.
Under sommaren skedde tiotals blockader och nyhetstidningar skrev om olika sabotage. I september, efter vräkningen som varade åtta dagar, flyttade lägret utanför byggnadsområdet för att fortsätta aktiviteterna med hjälp av lokalt stöd. Blockader eller andra aktiviteter mot kärnkraft stannade aldrig av.

I slutet av april kommer vi att återvända till byggnadsområdet. Målet är att paralysera hela området, för en lång tid. Med en tillräckligt stor grupp kan vi återta platsen och stanna där. Vi vill inte bara ockupera området, utan också fylla omgivande områden med aktiviteter mot Fennovoima, kärnkraft, kapitalism, förstöringen av naturen och genom att respektera mångfaldiga taktiker.

Kom med och gör det här möjligt. Kom och dela med dig av ditt kunnande i en verkstad eller för att lära dig från de mer erfarna, och börja din sommar med många vänner mitt i vårens uppvaknande av naturen.

Evenemanget börjar fredagen den 22 april med en fest som fortsätter över helgen. Den kommande veckan kommer att vara fylld med aktioner och verkstäder, delning av kunskap och kompetens, lära känna nya kamrater genom handling.
På tisdagen den 26 april kommer det att vara trettio år sedan Tjernobylolyckan – symboliskt perfekt tidpunkt för att stoppa ett nytt kärnkraftsprojekt. På Tjernobyldagen kommer flera olika organisationer protestera och vi kommer också att göra vår del. Evenemanget kommer att nå höjdpunkten under helgen, för första maj, när målet är att organisera en alla tiders upplopps första maj fest i norra Finland. I de närbelägna städerna organiseras marscher för första maj som vi också kan delta i.

Nell’Aprile del 2016 sarà un anno da quando Fennovoima ha cominciato a preparare l’area del Capo di Hanhikivi per la costruzione di una nuova centrale nucleare nel nord della Finlandia. Allo stesso tempo, il campo di protesta contro Fennovoima festeggia il suo primo anniversario. Il campo è stato in grado di rimanere all’interno della zona di costruzione più di cinque mesi ed è stato in grado di rallentare i lavori. Durante l’estate, decine di blocchi hanno avuto luogo e giornali hanno scritto di vari sabotaggi. Nel mese di settembre, dopo lo sgombero che é durato otto giorni, il campo si é spostato all’esterno del cantiere per proseguire l’attività con l’aiuto di sostenitori locali. Blocchi e altre attività contro l’energia nucleare non si sono fermati mai.

Alla fine di Aprile torneremo al cantiere. L’obiettivo è di paralizzare l’intero cantiere, per lungo tempo. Con un gruppo abbastanza grande possiamo rioccupare la zona e rimanere lì. Noi non vogliamo solo occupare la zona posteriore, ma anche riempire le zone circostanti con attività contro Fennovoima, l’energia nucleare, il capitalismo, la distruzione della natura, e rispettando la pluralità di tattiche.

Vieni e unisciti a noi per rendere questo possibile. Vieni a condividere il tuo know-how in un workshop o ad imparare dai più esperti, con numerosi compagni/e in mezzo alla natura che si sta risvegliando per la primavera.

L’evento inizia Venerdì 22 Aprile con una festa durantente tutto il week-end. La settimana successiva sarà pieno di azione e di worshops, la condivisione delle conoscenze e know-how, possibilitá di conoscere nuovi compagni/e organizzati insieme. Martedì 26 saranno trenta anni da Chernobyl’ – momento simbolicamente perfetto per fermare un nuovo progetto nucleare. Durante il Chernobyl’ Day diverse organizzazioni protesteranno e anche noi faremo la nostra parte. L’evento culmine sará nel week-end successivo, il Primo Maggio, quindi l’obiettivo è quello di organizzare la piú radicale festa del Primo Maggio della Finlandia settentrionale. Nelle vicine città, per il Primo Maggio sono organizzati dei cortei a cui possiamo unirci.

PUUSTA! THE PERSON IS BEEN TAKEN DOWN FROM THE TREE.

Puussa ollut henkilö on tänään otettu alas. Puun viereen raivattiin ja rakennettiin tie, jotta useat tehtävään tarvittavat ajoneuvot pääsivät puun lähelle. Yksi poliisi ja palomies aloittivat puun katkomisen latvasta. Samaan aikaan toinen pari lähestyi majaa alhaalta päin oksia karsien. Jonkin aikaa “orava ja näätäparvi” -leikki jatkui puussa, oksalla, majan alla, ylempänä, alempana kunnes lopulta kurren köydestä saatiin pitävä ote ja siirto kurottajaan vihdoin onnistui. Henkilö toimitettiin ambulanssilla nesteytykseen, mutta suht hyväkuntoisena hän on tänään pääsemässä jo vapaalle. Puun valtaus kesti 9 päivää ja osoitti, ettei kamppailu Fennovoiman järjetöntä hanketta vastaan ole laantunut. Toisin, kuin Fennovoiman tiedotteisiin nojaavassa uutisoinnissa väitetään, alue ei ole ydinvoimalatyömaa. Alueella ei ole edes virallista liikkumiskieltoa kuin aikaisintaan loppuvuodesta. Olemme iloisia, että toverimme on olosuhteisiin nähden hyvässä tilassa. Nälkälakot on nyt lopetettu.

Kiitämme kaikesta huomiosta ja tuesta!

The person in a tree hut is been taken down by the cops. The operation required cutting trees, building a new road, special unit of cops and fire department, 3 big vehicles, guards, and many hours. Finally the mop of pine martens caught the squirrel. Our comrade was taken into hospital to get liquid, but was already released this night. We are happy that the person is quite ok. All the hunger strikes ended this evening.

Thanks for all solidarity and attention!
On Tuesday September 15th the cops and security guards from local security company Arlia and G4S (they legally are able to stop people and give them to police) started to evict the activists from the land where Fennovoima has planned the construction site of the nuclear power plan in Hanhikivi Cape in Pyhäjoki. 4 arrests were made but people were released the day after. Updates from a treehouse (where a comrade is protesting) tell us that by 23:00 Wednesday the cops have not yet succeeded to empty the area, but the destruction is still in progress.

Activists of Hyökyaalto (Tsunami)network and from all over Finland, Sweden and other countries has been present in the protest camp since April.

Since Sep 15th an activist is on a treehouse on hunger strike to pretend the stop of Fennovoima’s Nuclear power plant project. He is still able to communicate thanks to a mobile phone. Police and security don’t let activists to come closer and to help the comrade. His name is Tomas Aakenus, for one week he had food to eat, but on Sunday it finished, so he decided to continue the protest by an hunger strike.

In Pyhäjoki (Hanhikivi Cape is part of administration of the city) 3 people have gone on hunger strike in front of Fennovoima’s office, 1 more also in Helsinki, present in Occupied Porthania (University of Helsinki) on Monday 21th.

Hyökyaalto network inform that is worried about the health of Tomas, due to a previously fever he had and now he has difficulty in absorbing liquids: “Everyone knows the circumstances, if you have wet clothes on a tree for weeks, including three days without eating. So, yes, he begins to be in poor condition.”

Activists claim responsibility of Tomas’s health and safety to the nuclear power company: “These then will be to sort out, if necessary, in court. We believe that the responsibility is of Fennovoima. Which is the bigger criminal: an illegal demonstration or other life-endangering?”

ITA:
Martedí 15 Settembre gli sbirri e le vigilanti/guardie di sicurezza delle compagnie di sorveglianza Arlia e G4S (hanno il diritto di fermare le persone e consegnarle alla polizia) hanno iniziato lo sgombero degli attivisti dalle terre dove Fennovoima ha pianificato i cantieri della nuova centrale nucleare nel Capo di Hanhikivi a Pyhäjoki. 4 arresti sono avvenuti ma le persone sono state rilasciate il giorno dopo. Aggiornamenti dalla casa sull’albero (dove c’é un compagno) dicono che alle 23:00 di Venerdí gli sbirri non hanno completato lo sgombero dell’intera area, ma la distruzione continua.

Gli attivisti della rete Hyökyaalto (Tsunami) e da tutta la Finlandia, Svezia e altri paesi sono stati presenti nel campeggio di protesta da Aprile.

Dal 15 Settembre un attivista sull’albero é in sciopero della fame per pretendere lo stop al progetto della centrale della Fennovoima. É ancora in grado dicomunicare grazie ad un cellulare. Polizia e vigilanti non permettono agli attivisti di avvicinarsi ed aiutare il compagno. Il suo nome é Tomas Aakenus, per una settimana ha avuto cibo da mangiare, ma Domenica ha finito le provviste, quindi ha deciso di continuare la protesta con uno sciopero della fame.

A Pyhäjoki (il Capo di Hanhikivi é parte dell’amministrazione della cittá) 3 attivisti sono entrati anch’essi in sciopero della fame di fronte aggli uffici di Fennovoima, un altro compagno in piú ad Helsinki, presente nell’Occupazione di Porthania (Universitá di Helsinki) da Lunedí 21.

La rete Hyökyaalto informa che é preoccupata della salute di Tomas, vista la precedente febbre che ha avuto e la presente difficoltá di assorbire liquidi: “Tutti conosciamo le circostanze, se hai vestiti umidi su un albero per settimane, e la fame da giorni. Quindi, sí, lui ha iniziato ad essere in condizioni gravi.”

Gli attivists danno la responsibilitá della salute di Tomas’s alla compagnia nucleare: “Se sará necessario, risolveremo questo caso anche in tribunale. Noi crediamo che la responsibilitá sia di Fennovoima. Cos’é piú criminale: un manifestante illegale o il rischio di vita?”

Police evicts action camp in Pyhäjoki and Squat Venetsia in Helsinki

Finland

On Tuesday September 15 the cops and security guards from local security company Arlia and G4S started to evict the protesters on Fennovoima´s planned nuclear construction site on Hanhikivi Cape in Pyhäjoki. 4 arrests where made but people where released the day after. Updates from a treehouse tell us that by 11 o´clock Wednesday evening the cops have not yet succeeded to empty the area, but the destruction is in progress.

Eviction of Squat Venetsia

On the same day that the eviction in Pyhäjoki started, Squat Venetsia in Helsinki showed solidarity with the occupation in Pyhäjoki. The day after, on wednesday, Venetsia was evicted.

Squat Venetsia had been planning solidarity events for the Pyhäjoki occupation and was also going to play an important role in housing people during the major strikes, protests and anti-government activities planned in Finland on friday.

The resistance on Hanhikivi Cape, Pyhäjoki

The protest camp, which has been around since April, is now moved to a different location in the remaining forest. The diverse activities that has taken place in Hanhikivi Cape – ranging from blockades, occupied trees and acts of sabotage- have significantly delayed Fennovoima´s plans to start the construction of the nuclear power plant together with energy company Fortum and Rosatom – Russian state owned company that specialises in the manufacturing of nuclear arms. Since the start of the occupation the situation on Hanhikivi cape has become more and more oppressive. A couple of weeks ago guards from the security company Arlia entered the camp in the night, armed with knives. A person was dragged away by the hair and two occupants were arrested by the police.

Both the camp on Hanhikivi Cape and Squat Venetsia – as part of the finnish squatting scene – have lately played important roles in spreading autonomous culture of active resistance and direct action against state and capital, in Finland. It is no coincidence they have been targeted now, on the verge of the protests taking place on Friday.

Monday Morning Machine Mayhem

Source: Takku

Early in the morning of monday July 6th, with simple and cheap tools like a hacksaw and a can of spray paint, we disabled an expensive digger machine at Fennovoima & Rosatom’s nuclear power plant working site at Hanhikivi, Pyhäjoki.

We committed the action as an independent group of direct actors – not acting in the name of any organization, but only in the name of solidarity towards the global struggle acting under black and green banners. We support anyone who acts against Fennovoima & Rosatom.

No state and no corporation may claim any water or any lands.

No man and no machine can bind our action or our hands.

Three taken into custody at nuclear protest (Pyhäjoki)

A Swedish national and two others were detained Monday morning for involvement in a protest against the construction of a nuclear plant by Fennovoima in Pyhäjoki, near Oulu. Two of the detained protesters had chained themselves to excavating equipment.

Three people have been taken into custody following their involvement in a protest against the building of a nuclear plant in Pyhäjoki, western Finland.

Two of the detained protesters had reportedly chained themselves to excavating equipment.

A third detainee, a Swedish national, has been named as 19-year-old student Leon Berthas, who may have been filming the protest. His father, Håkan Berthas, told Yle he last heard from his son at eight a.m. Monday and has not been in contact with him since.

“He said that the police were coming. I said ‘you should be alert, watch out,’” Berthas said.

Berthas said that he presumes that his son simply wanted to film the event but that police prevented him from doing so by detaining him.

“They didn’t want him to film,” Berthas alleged. “It is obvious that they do not want demonstrations and police violence to be filmed,” he claimed.

Police spokesman Arto Autio said that Leon Berthas was taken to the Raahe police station for questioning because he refused to obey police requests at the construction site. Autio said that police repeated their requests 10 times before he was taken into custody.

Autio says the individuals were taken into custody because police needed to check their identities, and that Berthas faces charges of disobeying police.

It remains unclear when the three will be released.

Bertha attends college and his documentary film “Sisu Meltdown,” about nuclear power in Finland — which his father helped to film — is part of his coursework.

Construction at the Pyhäjoki site resumed later on Monday.

Antinuclear resistance in Pyhäjoki (Finland)

Source: Hyokyaalto

The Fennovoima Energy Company is starting to construct a nuclear power plant in Pyhäjoki, a nice, quiet and small municipality in the northwest of Finland. An action camp has been started in the area to stop the project.

During the second half of April, Fennovoima cut 95 hectares of very special coastal forest at the construction site. They didn’t wait for a month for the legal permission to clearcut the landscape. Instead, Fennovoima started destroying the forest on Wednesday, the 15 of April. The forest was a home for several rare birds and other species. Nests of endangered white-backed woodpeckers (Dendrocopos leucotos) were destroyed, a very rare white-tailed eagle got disturbed as dozens of machines demolished its neighborhood.

The operation was carried out by the Waste Management Company Lassila & Tikanoja. The fast start of the cutting was a shock for many people and organizations. The local nature conservation association, the bird protection association and the antinuclear organization Pro Hanhikivi that have been opposing Fennovoima complained and demanded to stop the cutting of the forest immediately. The nesting season of the birds had started already. Many antinuclear people resigned their waste management contract with Lassila & Tikanoja immediately.

In Helsinki 5 people from the Hyökyaalto Eco Action Group took necessary action and entered the headquarters of Lassila & Tikanoja, in order to distribute flyers to the workers in their offices and they refused to leave the building before the cuttings would be stopped. Three people were carried out by police and arrested. They were released on the same day.

We, the Hyökyaalto Eco Action Group, had already planned to start a camp at the forest area, but now we had to hurry. On Tuesday morning, the 21th of April at 6 AM, four people arrived at the cape of Pyhäjoki and witnessed the apocalyptic view of dozens of machines killing the forest. During the following six days the cutting machines were working 24/7. We had been in contact with local cabin owners, and now we just waited to get the cabin keys – and the occupation camp started. The locals were upset, since Fennovoima had been given a special permission that made it possible for them to expropriate land from the locals, which had belonged to their families for generations. The locals knew their cottages on the shore should be emptied by the 31th of May, but they still didn’t know what the compensation price would be.

hanhikivi2-hakkuurisua The next morning more people arrived from northern Finland and plenty of locals arrived to see the clearcuttings. Soon one person climbed high into a tree, in order to occupy a small part of forest left over to stop it from being cut. At the same time, two cars blocked the road off from the cutting machines and security cars. Some people just ran to the machines and placed themselves in front of them so that they were forced to stop the cuttings. When the cops arrived, they got loads of frustrated feedback from Pyhäjoki people, including one person who had first parked his car to block the road. They reminded the cops that they had never been heard when they complained about the crimes of Fennovoima’s, but now the cops were there immediately to protect Fennovoima’s destruction of the forest for the nuclear power plant. Two people that had blocked the machines were arrested by the cops immediately. The tree and small forest area was occupied successfully for 16 hours. Activists from the Hyökyvaalto Group supported the occupation of the tree by bringing warm clothes, food and clean water. In the night a heavy snow storm stopped the occupation of the small forest area and the activist was forced to leave his position in the tree. The next morning that small part of the forest was simply cut down.

Meanwhile, on the next night in Helsinki, in response to the cutting operations, two vans of the waste company Lassila & Tikanoja were burned out completely and a third van was damaged in the same fire. People in the camp and around it welcomed the news from south joyfully. We didn´t hear a negative word about the arsons.

In the camp all kind of little disturbing of the work process became a daily routine. The only road to the cabins goes through the clean cut area and is used by the cutting workers, so people who used the road slowed down the disturbing of the environment whenever there was a log truck or security car on the road. Soon the security company forgot that the road is a public road and started stopping cars from getting to the shore area where the cottages are and accused us as well as the locals for trespassing in the area. Fennovoima’s illegal attempts to try to occupy the cape, while it was still privately owned and public accessible land, raised even more anger amongst the residents.

On Saturday the next bigger blockade was carried out by the activists. A forest tractor was stopped and blocked for 6 hours as three people jumped onto it, chained and locked themselves to it. A bit later one activist changed vehicles when a log truck was stopped on the road next to the forest tractor and he blocked the log truck. A media show was on. One person from the camp had already been on air in the local radio station and was talking about Fennovoima and direct action, but now the pictures of repeating protests spread throughout the media nationwide. The companies attempt to carry out the work in silence didn´t work out after all.

Just a few days later, on Tuesday, a group of four people attempted to block a log truck that was speeding down the road. Three of them stood on the road prepped with a banner, ready to jump upon the truck the moment it would slow down. The optimistic trust towards the truck driver created a lethal risk, since the driver made no attempt to stop. They had to jump off the road and into the ditch, but one person managed to run after the truck, jump onto it, and climb onto the logs while the truck was still driving. Soon the truck had to stop and the banner was raised. It took several hours before the cops and firemen managed to get him off his position on the truck.

In the last few days there has been more and more critical news about Fennovoima and their actions. There are only two months left until the deadline on June 2015, when Fennovoima needs to have 60% Finnish ownership according the government officials, and it´s still lacking investors. The Finnish state partly owns a company named Fortum and they are negotiating about Russian involvement in hydropower and are about to buy 15% of Fennovoima. If that wouldn´t happen, Fennovoima would be in deep problems. They would probably not be able to cut themselves off of the construction contracts before 1th of July when their decision in principle (permission from the government and parliament) will expire and they would need to start the whole political process again.

Many people wonder if any reasonable company would be willing to jump into the mess Fennovoima has created, or still consider if they want to confirm the old contracts.

Until the 31th of May the cabins will be legally in the use of the campers, but let´s see how the expropriations will be put into action. We have never said we would leave the cape at that date. During the next period, Fennovoima may attempt to build a fence to cover the construction area along the cape and build the electricity system for the upcoming construction site of the nuclear power plant. This spring and summer will be a period of active resistance for us, and we don’t intend to leave the area after the summer period either. Now is the best moment to make the greedy nuclear power project fall. Still, we need help!! Join the resistance!

Right now, we have been more than successful in our fight against Fennovoima. We have supporters and several different resources to continue our resistance. We have found a vast majority of people positively supporting us through social media, email, phone, and the local supporters have been generous in providing us with clean drinking water, washing facilities and shelter.

And yet, nevertheless, more people are needed here, in Pyhäjoki. We have become a mixed group of people of environmentally concerned people, activists, locals, and also average people who have become aware of the situation through social media and, instead of just “liking”, took a bus to Pyhäjoki to join us in our cozy and family-like, warm camp.

Everybody can make a difference, either through cooking nice food for our daily meals, writing texts about the events here for (social) media, addressing locals and workers, handing out flyers and other tasks. And if you are an adventurous person you can join us in our actions. If you love animals, come and take pictures of the crimes committed against the endangered species that are left and frightened, since they only have small areas of forest left to live in.

The final expropriation date has been set by Fennovoima to the end of May. This is the most important time to gather at the cape of Hanhikivi, the most beautiful place of nature that Finland has to offer for nature lovers, families and those who love to see rare species of animals in their natural environment.

Antikernkraft Wiederstand in Pyhäjoki, Finnland – Mache mit in unseren Kampf!

English

Die Firma Fennovoima Energie Versorgung hat mit einen Projekt begonnen, einen Kernkraftwerk in Pyhäjoki zu bauen. Pyhäjoki ist ein Kleindorf im Nordwesten Finnlands direkt an der Küste, Heimat für viele Tierarten die von aussterben bedroht sind und vielfach besucht von Naturliebhabern und Urlauber aus der örtliche Umgebung.

Fennovoima hat in April begonnen, 95 Hektar von den Wald in der Pyhäjoki Küstenumgebung zu Förstern. Fennovoima hätte warten müssen auf eine Sondergenehmigung um mit ihren Arbeiten beginnen zu können. Das ging einfach an Fennovoima vorbei und Fennovoima hat ohne zu warten begonnen, die Umgebung zu zerstören am Mittwoch, den 15 April, 2015. Wie erwähnt – der Wald ist Heimat für viele seltene und von aussterben bedrohte Tierarten. Die Vögel hatten schon begonnen Neste zu bauen in den Bäumen. Die Neste von den seltenen Weißrückenspechte (Dendrocopos leucotos) wurden einfach durch die Försterarbeiten zerstört und ein Seeadler wurde aufgebracht als sämtliche Maschinen ihren Heimatumgebung zerstört hat.

Die „Arbeiten“ wurden ausgeführt von den Abfallwirtschaft Firma Lassila & Tikanoja. Das alles so schnell und ohne Genehmigung begonnen hatte war ein Schock für viele Leute und Organisationen. Fennovoima Gegner wie der örtliche Naturschutzverband, Vogelschutzverband und der Anti Kernkraft Organisation Pro Hanhikivi hatten sich beschwert und verlangten einen sofortigen Ende der Försterarbeiten. Ihre Beschwerden wurden nicht gehört und blieben ohne Erfolg. Viele Kernkraftgegner im ganzen Land haben aus Protest ihren Verträgen mit den Abfallwirtschaft Firma Lassila & Tikanoja sofort gekündigt.

5 Aktivisten aus der Gruppe Hyökyvaalto Umweltaktivisten haben erforderliche Maßnahmen getroffen und sind in den Helsinki Büro von Lassila & Tikanoja eingedrungen um Flyer zu verteilen und haben den sofortigen Stopp der Försterarbeiten gefordert. Drei Aktivisten wurden von den alarmierten Polizisten verhaftet, jedoch am gleichen Tag noch freigelassen.

Wir, die Hyökyaalto Umweltaktivisten, hatten bereits geplant einen Besetzungscamp in den Waldgebiet an der Küste von Pyhäjoki zu bauen und Wiederstand gegen Fennovoima und Lassila & Tikanoja zu leisten, aber wir mussten uns beeilen da die Arbeiten so schnell ausgeführt wurden und kaum noch etwas von den Wald noch übrig geblieben war. An Dienstag, den 21 April, um 6 Uhr morgens kamen wir zu viert an der Küste von Pyhäjoki an und wurden Zeuge der Verwüstung und Zerstörung das angerichtet wurde von sämtliche Maschinen die den Wald einfach platt gemacht hatten. Die nächsten Tage über sahen wir wie die Maschinen 24/7 arbeiteten. Da wir mit den örtlichen Ferienhausbesitzern Kontakt hatten, haben wir gewartet auf Ferienhausschlüsseln und die Besetzung des Waldes hatte begonnen. Die Örtlichen waren sehr aufgebracht und wütend, da Fennovoima eine Sondergenehmigung hatte, Privatbesitz das über Generationen weitergegeben wurde von den Örtlichen, zu enteignen. Die Örtlichen wussten das sie ihren Besitz bis zum 31 Mai 2015 räumen mussten, aber sie waren unklar über die Summe die sie erhalten sollten, da viele sich geweigert hatten an die Verhandlungen teilzunehmen.

hanhikivi2-hakkuurisua Am nächsten Morgen trafen mehr besorgte Leute an aus Nordfinnland und viele Örtlichen kamen an, um sich selbst ein Blick der Apokalypse zu verschaffen. Es hat nicht lange gedauert bis einer der Aktivisten auf einen Baum geklettert ist um die Försterarbeiten zu stoppen. Gleichzeitig wurden zwei weitere Maschinen blockiert von zwei Personen und Autos blockierten die Straße, damit die Förstermaschinen und Sicherheitsdiensten nicht durchfahren konnten. Die Arbeiten wurden dadurch gestoppt und als die Polizei angekommen ist, wurden die erstmal mit verärgerten Menschen konfrontiert die sich über die illegale Arbeiten beschwert haben. Ein Autofahrer der die Straße blockiert hatte hat die Polizisten daran erinnert, das ihre Beschwerden gegen die illegale Arbeiten von Fennovoima nie gehört wurden. Die Polizei jedoch war sofort damit beschäftigt, Fennovoima den Rücken frei zu halten und die Zerstörung des Waldes weiter zuzulassen für das Kernkraftwerkprojekt. Die Zwei die Maschinen blockiert hatten mit ihren Körpern wurden sofort verhaftet. Der Baum und umgebene Waldstück wurde erfolgreich besetzt für weitere 16 Stunden und die Hyökzvaalto Umweltaktivisten unterstützten den Besetzer aus ihren Reihen mit warme Kleidung, Essen und sauberen Trinkwasser. In der folgenden Nacht brach ein Schneesturm auf und der Aktivist musste sein Position auf den Baum verlassen. Am nächsten Morgen war der kleine Waldstück das durch die Besetzung geschützt werden sollte einfach verschwunden, abgeschnitten und zerstört.

An den darauf folgenden Nacht in Helsinki wurden zwei Kleintransporter der Firma Lassila & Tikanoja völlig ausgebrannt und ein Drittes wurde durch das Feuer schwer beschädigt. Es war eine Antwort auf die Försterarbeiten und die Aktivisten im Camp haben die Nachricht aus den Süden Finnlands mit Freude gefeiert. In der Umgebung von Pyhäjoki gab es kein negatives Wort über den Brand von den Örtlichen.

In den Besatzungscamp war die Verhinderung der Försterarbeiten zum täglichen Geschehen. Es gibt nur eine Straße der zu den Ferienhäuser führt. Diese Straße wird von den Örtlichen, Naturliebhabern und den Försterarbeiter zugleich genützt. Es war daher einfach mit Autos die Försterarbeiten zu verlangsamen und die Arbeiter die Arbeiten schwer zu machen, aber auch den Sicherheitsdiensten bei ihren Arbeiten zu verhindern. Es dauerte nicht lange und die Sicherheitsdiensten haben wohl vergessen das es sich hierbei um ein öffentlicher Straße handelt und sie fingen an, alle Autos zu blockieren und beschuldigten jeden der durch wollte unbefugtes Eindringen. Fennovoima´s illegale Versuche den Ortschaft zu betreten schlugen fehl, das es sich noch teilweise um öffentlich zugänglichen Raum und Privatbesitz handelt. Fennovoima hat dadurch noch mehr Ärger auf sich gezogen seitens der Örtlichen und Naturliebhabern.

Samstag wurde noch eine größere Blockade Aktion ausgeführt von den Aktivisten. Ein Traktor der Försterarbeiter wurde zuerst gestoppt und anschließend blockiert für volle 3 Stunden, als 3 Leute auf den Traktor aufsprangen und sich daran festketteten. Kurz darauf entschloss sich einer der drei Aktivisten das Fahrzeug zu wechseln als ein vorbeifahrenden Laster blockiert wurde und hat sich daran festgekettet. Ein Medienspektakel folgte darauf. Zuerst am Morgen wurde einer der Aktivisten eingeladen zu den örtlichen Radio Sender und hat dort über Fennovoima und Direct Action gesprochen. Nun wurden noch fast täglich Bildern verbreitet in Finnlands bekanntesten Medien und dadurch konnte Fennovoima ihren Plänen nicht in Stillschweigen ausführen.

Ein paar Tage später gingen Blockade Aktionen wieder los. Vier Aktivisten wollten einen Lastwagen das ganz schnell die Straße hinunterfuhr blockieren und waren ausgestattet mit einen Banner. Drei von ihnen standen auf die Straße um den Fahrzeug zu stoppen während einer am Straßenrand wartete. Der Lastwagenfahrer, der bereits sehr schnell fuhr, hatte nicht die Absicht zu stoppen und die Drei mussten im Graben springen um sich von mögliche schwere Verletzungen zu schützen. Der Vierte jedoch schaffte es, am Fahrzeug aufzuspringen, hinaufzuklettern und zwang somit den Fahrer anzuhalten. Daraufhin wurde der Banner mit aller Stolz hochgehalten. Die Polizei und Feuerwehr haben sämtliche Stunden voller Ärger verbracht bis sie den Aktivisten von den Laster holen konnten.

In den letzten Tagen verbreiten sich mehr und mehr negative Nachrichten über Fennovoima und ihren Methoden. In zwei Monaten, Juni 2015 muss Fennovoima 60% Beteiligung am Besitz durch finnische Investoren haben laut finnische Regierung. Fennovoima jedoch hat Probleme Investoren zu finden. Die finnische Regierung besitzt zum Teil eine Firma namens Fortum und es wird über die russische Beteiligung an Hydroenergie verhandelt. Fortum soll 15% von Fennovoima kaufen. Wenn das nicht geschieht und die Verhandlungen scheitern, wird Fennovoima weitere Probleme bekommen. Fennovoima kann es dann nicht schaffen ihren Verträgen zum Bau des Kernkraftwerks einzuhalten und können sich auch nicht bis zum 1 Juli von ihren Verträgen lösen. Neue Verträge müssen dann wieder verhandelt werden und Fennovoima fängt von Vorne wieder an.

Viele wundern sich ob sich überhaupt noch eine Firma finden lässt der sich beteiligen will an den Schlamassel den Fennovoima erschaffen hat.

Am 31 Mai sollen alle Ferienhäuser geräumt sein. Bis dahin ist es legal für die Camper, sich am Ort aufzuhalten. Warten wir es ab, wie die Räumung aussehen soll und auch, wie es durchgeführt werden soll. Wir haben keine Absicht den Ort oder die Ferienhäuser zu verlassen. Fennovoima wird möglicherweise versuchen, einen Zaun um den gesamten Ort des geplanten Kernkraftwerk zu errichten. Der Frühling und Sommer wird eine Zeit des aktiven Wiederstandes für uns werden und wir werden den Ortschaft nicht verlassen, auch nach den Sommer. Gerade jetzt ist es eine wichtige Zeit um den Kernkraftproject stürzen zu lassen. Dennoch brauchen wir Hilfe – also mache mit im Wiederstand!

Bisher waren wir mehr als nur erfolgreich in unseren Kampf gegen Fennovoima. Wir haben so viel Unterstützung gefunden und uns stehen ganz viele Mitteln zur Verfügung um weiterhin Wiederstand zu leisten. Wir haben so viele Leute gefunden die uns positiv unterstützen durch Social Media, Email, Telefon und die örtlichen Bewohnern sind mehr als nur großzügig wenn sie uns mit sauberen Trinkwasser versorgen, wasch Möglichkeiten und Wohnraum.

Dennoch reicht uns das nicht aus. Wir wollen mehr Leute sehen hier in Pyhäjoki. Wir sind bereits ein so durcheinander gemischter Gruppe – von Leute die besorgt sind um die Umwelt hier, Naturschutzliebhabern, Aktivisten, örtlichen Bewohnern und den Durchschnittsmenschen der aufmerksam auf uns wurde und den das „liking“ alleine nicht ausreichte und einfach einen Bus nach Pyhäjoki genommen hat um in unseren gemütlichen, family like, warmen Camp mitzumischen.

Jeder kann was verändern hier, wirklich jeder. Es gibt so viele Dinge zu tun. Vielleicht willst Du kochen um uns mit den täglichen Mahlzeiten zu helfen, schreiben über die Geschiednisse hier für die Medien oder Social Media, die Örtlichen vor Ort ansprechen und darüber informieren, was wir tun und wofür wir stehen oder einfach Flyer verteilen in den Nachbarschaften – es gibt genug Aufgaben für Jeden der uns in den Kampf gegen Fennovoima beisteht. Wenn Du Abenteuer suchst, bist Du auch gerne wilkommen bei unseren Aktionen mitzumachen. Wenn Du einen Tierliebhaber bist, kannst Du Fotos machen von den Tierarten die hier von Aussterben bedroht sind und verägstigt umherirren und dabei dokumentieren, wie schwer die Verbrechen gegen diese Tiere sind, da sie nur noch kleine, begrenzte Lebensraum noch über haben.

Das Enddatum zum Enteignung und Räumung des Gebietes wurde von Fennovoima gegeben: 31 Mai, 2015. Es ist daher jetzt wichtiger wie je zuvor hierher zu kommen und uns hier an der Küste von Hanhikivi zu versammeln, der schönste Ort den Finnland zu bieten hat für Naturliebhabern, Familien, örtlichen Urlaubern und die Menschen, die einfach nur gerne die Tiere beobachten in ihren naturlichen Umgebung.

Från Pyhäjoki till Hambach…

… världsomspännande solidaritet i motståndet mot den kapitalistiska miljöförstörelsen!

Runtom i världen upplever vi en pågående förstörelse av naturen i kapitalismens namn. Samtidigt har motståndsrörelsen gått upp till kamp och tagit ansvar för att försvara vår livsviktiga natur och dess mångfald.

I åratal har motståndsrörelsen försvarat en urskog i Hambach, Tyskland, mot RWE:s planer att anlägga en kolgruva på området. Där har kampen varit framgångsrik. I Finland pågår just nu en liknande kamp för allas gemensamma väl. Ett naturskönt skogsområde vid Bottenvikskusten i nordvästra Finland har skoningslöst huggits ner. De ansvarslösa kapitalisternas dröm är att bygga ett kärnkraftverk.

Vi som deltagit i motståndsrörelsen i Pyhäjoki, Finland, har tyvärr fått bevittna hur många sällsynta djurarters boområde sorglöst har förstörts. Nu är vi här för att försvara de sista oförstörda revirområdena så länge som det behövs. Vi tänker inte låta ett kärnkraftverk hota strandområdet. Och vi viker oss absolut inte inför girigheten i vårt försvar av ett unikt artbestånd och dess rättmätiga levnadsplats. Vi kämpar mot skövlingen av skogen, för ett rent kustområde och för livet i skogen och havet, samt för att trygga en renare framtid för de lokala invånarna.

Med dessa ord och gärningar vill vi visa vår solidaritet till våra gelikar i Hambach, som just nu kämpar mot våldsmaskineriets avhysningsförsök medan de försvarar våra gemensamma skogar mot kapitalisternas förödande framfart.
