Ende Gelände‏ Lausitz: Protect the climate, block the coal diggers!

Aankondiging, gepost door: GroenFront! op 27/11/2015 11:09:37

Waar: Lignite coal fields in the Lusatia area (near Berlin), Germany
Wanneer: 13/05/2015 - 21:31 t/m 16/05/2015 - 21:31

Last, August over 1.500 people occupied an opencast mine and blocked the coal diggers near Cologne (video, pictures). But this was just the beginning! In spring 2016 we say: Ende Gelände (end of the road) for lignite coal in Lusatia.

2016 is a crucial year that will determine the future of coal in Lusatia. Vattenfall, one of Germany‘s energy corporations, wants to sell coal mines and coal fired power plants for as much money as possible instead of shutting them down. A new investor would reinvest large sums into lignite mining in the area. In order to avoid catastrophic climate change, this coal has to remain in the ground.

We are an investment risk! We’re saying to potential buyers: if you want to invest in lignite in 2016, we will meet you with our resistance. The larger the protest, the less lucrative the investment becomes, the lower the selling price, the more unlikely the deal. We can still avert the deal and force Vattenfall to shut down the mine. Down into the pit, up with the risk!

We are here to stay! We will turn up wherever the climate is turned into capital. Whether it is new mines or dirty power plants – our action is a promise: We will come back, until the last digger is shut down for good.

We are international! Whether local initiatives, whether the global divestment campaigns or activists from the international climate justice movement – in 2016 we protest together in Lusatia.

We are Ende Gelände! Together with many people, from the 13th to 16th May we will block the diggers with a mass action of civil disobedience.
