Reclaim the Fields and Actioncamp 2014 in Germany

9th. – 13th. of July 2014 in Sehlis/ Taucha near Leipzig/ Germany



Together with you we want to organize a diverse and resistant Camp against the B87n, a new highway, that is supposed to be built through one of the last remaining pieces of intact landscape in the north of Saxony. On top, the highway is supposed to cut through the fields of the cooperative “Rote Beete”, one of the three projects of community-supported-agriculture in Saxony. The Camp means to underline the longlasting local resistance against the B87n.

But it is not all just about one more highway. Instead, it is all about the use and the price of ever-more concrete, ever-faster cars, ever-more use of energy and ever-more effectivness and profit.

Reclaim the Fields – Treffen vom 30.01. – 02.02.2014 auf Burg Lutter

Vom 30.01.- 02.02.2014 möchten wir euch zum Reclaim the Fields Treffen im deutschsprachigen Raum einladen.

Das europäische Reclaim the Fields Camp fand dieses Jahr im Rheinland statt, um verstärkt einen Zusammenhang zwischen Kohleabbau und dessen Auswirkungen auf die Ernährungssouveränität aufzuzeigen. Darüber hinaus galt es die starken Zusammenhänge von Energie, Landwirtschaft und deren Auswirkungen auf den Klimawandel deutlich zu machen. Während des Camps fand sich eine Gruppe zusammen, die aktiv das Reclaim the Fields-Netzwerk im deutsprachigen Raum ausweiten und stärken möchte. Und dafür braucht es dich!

Da es bei dem Treffen vorrangig um Vernetzung und ein Kennenlernen gehen soll, werden folgende Fragen im Fokus stehen:

- Wer bist du und was verbindest du mit Reclaim the Fields?

- Welche Interessen, Erfahrungen und welches Wissen möchtest du mit uns teilen?

- Wer sind "wir", was wollen "wir"... und wo soll das Ganze hingehen? Und wie?


....."wer?" ....."wie?" ......"was?" ...."wieso?" ...."weshalb?" ......"warum?"

Wann: 30.01.2014 -- 02.02.2014

Actions Days in the Rhineland Coalfield, Day II – Demonstration and Coal Train Blockade

31/08/2013 Manheim. Second Day of the Actions Days in the Rhineland Coalfield. Around 300 activists are occupying the coal train tracks which is the main way to transport coal between the open-cast coal mine “Hambach” to the big power plants which emit 100 millions tons of CO2 per year. The action is happening in solidarity with the Climate and Reclaim the Fields Camp that is taking place from August 23 to September 6, 2013 in the Rhineland coalfield.


From Climate- to Reclaim The Fields Camp

Starting on Friday the 23 August, the third Climate Camp takes place in Manheim, near Cologne. The start of the climate camp was restricted by the requirements of the assembly authority who forbade camping at the meeting. Although the camp is now taking place for the third time, this ban, which is suspended due to the outcome of a final judicial decision, could be prevented by a lawsuit.


This conflict forced the Climate Camp to withdraw to an adjacent private meadow. At the planned location only an information tent and a tech-tent were allowed to remain. The workshop tents had to be removed even though they were not designed as sleeping facilities.


Info about Registration of the Camp with local authorities/police

Here an interview with Tina, in the organizing group of the camps, with new Infomartion about Registration of the Camp with local authorities/police (in German only).

Broadcasted August 19th on Radio Dreyeckland in Freiburg.


Callout for Helping Hands/Materials at the Camps!

 Helping hands needed for the De/Construction of the camps!

From Tuesday 21st of August we will start to build up the big tents and other important infrastructure. After the Camps we will be deconstructing the camp until the 10th of September.

We create the space we need for our camplife. We will set up the tents, compost toilets and showers.

We us the basis of what is there as a foundation for a good life and nice actions.

Call out for Gardening Tools for the Camps

Soon the camps in the Rhineland will start with a lot of people and lots of colorful workshops, but not enough tools yet for all the amazing things we have planned.

Everything is needed, from watering-can, to big water containers, from hammer and nails to wood for construction, from pickax to wheelbarrow.

Bring your used or old tools to the camp or if you want to bring them beforehand, to the squatted meadow (www.hambacherforst.blogsport.de) near Morschenich, Germany.
