DIE AUTOBAHN – KAMPF UM DIE A 49
The A 49 through the Dannenrod Forest has divided the local population for over 40 years. Through their protests, three generations have been able to delay its extension until now. But for how much longer? The verdict has been passed, the forest is now occupied by activists and the police are already preparing for their eviction, to make way for the machines. Ludwig Sporrer
