Saturday July 1st
Cops are back ! At 6pm, 4 vehicles parked at the (ex) antenna a few hundred meters from the forest then started moving towards the South barricade. About 20 cops got out of the trucks in anti riot gear and fully armed. In order to keep them away the south barricade was set on fire.
We faced them for an jour, they were pointing their flashballs at us but didn’t shoot. Just like yesterday, it looks like it could be a rehearsal exercise, maybe to prepare for an eviction.
We are calling for people to start joining us in the forest to make sure we keep enough numbers to keep them off. July is gonna be yet another busy month.
We also call for people to join us on our big demo on August 15th to celebrate the fall of the wall and consolidate the forest occupation.
Friday June 30th
Classic. Every month, we are gifted with our own cops visit. Except that today, there were 50 of them, with flashballs and shields in hand and they weren’t smiling. They mpved towards the first south barricade while in the north about 15 of them searched the North watchtower even though it is set on a private property (a field owned by a friendly farmer).
The police operation started at 5pm and was over around 6:30pm. We are calling for people to remain careful, it looks like they might be training for an eviction. The cops assured us “we’re here to stay and we’ll see you again soo”. We sure know how to expect them.
