On the last October weekend, thousands of activists will block coal infrastructure around the Hambach mine in a mass action of civil disobedience. By doing this, Ende Gelände stands up for an immediate coal-phase-out and for global climate justice. Three open-cast lignite mines and three massive power-plants make the Rhineland coalfield near Cologne one of the biggest sources of CO2 in Europe, and a focal point of the climate movement.

„It's a huge success that the clearance of the Hambach forest is suspended“, says Karolina Drzewo, press spokes person of Ende Gelände. „But the coal diggers continue to threaten villages, local ecosystems and the global climate. Science urgently tells us to phase-out fossil fuels. However, the government delays determined climate action. Therefore we will take matters in our own hand and begin coal-phase out with our bodies.“

This year there will be a special Ende Gelände Train that leaves Prague in the afternoon of October 25 and will go via Dresden, Leipzig, Berlin, Hannover to Düren in the Rhineland coalfield.

Ende Gelände has also been part of the protests for saving the Hambacher Forest on October 6, 2018. You find photos of this and former actions on our flickr account:
