Germany: Police continue eviction of Hambach forest activists

German police continued the eviction of environmental activists living in treehouses in a section of the Hambach Forest in the late hours of Thursday. Hambach is currently home to dozens of activists who live in some 60 treehouses. The occupation began in 2012, when a group of activists decided to dwell in the forest to fight against the expansion of energy company RWE's open-pit coal mine... Еще, which is one of the largest in Europe. RWE, who owns Hambach and is legally allowed to cut down trees to access coal, plans to start felling half of the forest's remaining 200 hectares in October. Activists have called for a mass mobilisation in the coming days.
