TV Broadcast:

The red line - Resistance in Hambach Forest

TV broadcast of The red line - Resistance in Hambach Forest from Karin de Miguel Wessendorf on 23rd of january 2020 at 23:59, HR.

"When 31,000 policemen take action against 50 tree squatters and tear gas and truncheons are used, a 550-hectare "pedunculate oak-hornbeam-lily-of-the-valley-forest" becomes a symbol of resistance. Since 2015, director Karin de Miguel Wessendorf has accompanied the protests against the clearing of the Hambacher forest and against the destruction of the villages on the edge of the lignite opencast mining, the largest CO2 source in Europe. First it was only a rebellion of individual groups with different goals, but in the autumn of 2018 the protest against the clearing finally becomes one broad supraregional movement."
