Dannenröder Forest stays!
The Dannenröder forest is an old, fully intact, mixed forest in the German state of Hesse. The government wants to destroy it in order to expand the A49 highway. This is especially irresponsible in face of the climate emergency and ongoing loss of biodiversity. Forests play a decisive role in the fight against global warming, absorb CO2 and provide homes for a myriad of plants and animals. Instead of building ever more highways, we need to increase our efforts to make transport climate and forest friendly.
To protect the forest from being cut down, activists have been living there for more than a year. But the forest could be cleared as early as the beginning of October. The Hessian Minister of Transport, Tarek Al Wazir, must call off the clearing. The German Federal Transport Minister, Andreas Scheuer, must call an end to the expansion of the A49 and all other highway projects. The Federal Transport Infrastructure Plan must be fundamentally revised according to sustainable criteria!
