I couldn’t leave that fourth tower standing. Now it rests calmly on the ground.

Fuck RWE and fuck speciesism.

A lone owl, this time with some other forest friends.

24th November, Hambacher Forest

After the court’s decision to cut the remains of the forest and a call from the police to inform us that we will be evicted next week, I decided to send a message.

I came out of the perimeter of the forest to locate four huge shooting towers. Slow and steady under the handsaw, each one of the legs gave way. Unfortunately, the police were parked only 100 meters away from the fourth tower, so it will have to be done a different day.

I approached the railway used by RWE to transport coal. With a rope attached to one of the extremes, I tied the other side of a metal chain to the rail. Then, throwing the rope over the electricity cables and pulling the chain upwards I caused the electric system to trip with a huge sound flying in the sky. They won’t be transporting coal tonight.

Seeing the police lights approaching the railway, I retired back to the safety of the forest. You are not cutting the woods. You are not evicting the animals. You are doomed to fail.

Fuck capitalism. Fuck speciesism.
