ca. 17.30  - Tractor blockade in Splietau

In Splietau the southern route is blockaded by about 80 tractors at the moment. The blockade shall be held till tomorrow. Police moved tanks for eviction in the area, but they are still on the way. The tractors are locked into each other and the keys taken away...

Evening : 18 arrests - that doesn´t say much

18 people arrested, 17 free again up to now. No one can tell exactly how many people are still here.

But it´s a lot of them ! The whole area stands crosswise, everywhere are people and machines (cars, tractors, bikes). The "normal" life tomorrow will not be the same normality as we´re used to it in this country. The Wendland is occupied by police, but even they with their enormous violence are not superiour, maybe the will be able to push the resistance of the people who are here to beside but they will not break it.

No pasaran !
