Niederofleiden, November 29, 2020
In the night of 28/11 we set fire to the gravel plant in Niederofleiden. We show solidarity with the occupation and their struggle for the Danni.
To celebrate on 29/11, we decided to visit the open pit mine of Mitteldeutsche Hartstein Industrie AG southeast of Niederofleiden the night before. There we set fire to their Hitachi ZX870LC-6 excavator. Currently, many truckloads of stones and gravel are driven daily from this open pit mine to the Dannenröder forest. There they are used to level roads for the police and to secure the already cleared areas of the highway.
The Mitteldeutsche Hartstein Industrie AG directly supports the police, Strabag and DEGES in the construction of the A49, so they have become a target for us. The construction of the A49 is an ecological fiasco, the police action there is a clear attack against the integrity of all living beings on site.
For us, it doesn’t matter whether it’s a party, a family business, a large corporation, an open-cast mine or a forestry office. You all bear responsibility! And we will not allow you to evade this responsibility! Whether registered demonstration, resistance in the forest occupation itself, highway blockades, disruption of the Green headquarters in Wiesbaden or Stuttgart, attacks on company headquarters or simply carrying the „Forest instead of asphalt“ flags. We all stand together in the resistance against the construction of this highway. You cannot divide this movement.
We also invite everyone to join this year’s celebration.
Who still lights candles on Sundays when you can light excavators instead?
Advent, Advent, an excavator is burning. First one, then two, then three, then four, then we’ll be at your door. And if the fifth excavator burns, you have missed the traffic turnaround.
