As extreme weather is visibly increasing, bringing suffering to millions of people around the globe, it is clear to all that coal mining should come to a an urgent end in order to prevent further climate change! Nevertheless, the German government supports coal power stations and continues the expansion of the biggest lignite coal mines of Europe; the Garweiler and Hambach mines in the Rhineland near Cologne, just 30km over the border with the Netherlands.

To expand these coal mines, fertile agricultural land and centuries old villages such as Manheim, Keyenberg, Borschemich, Immerath and Morschenich are continuously being evicted and destroyed. The last remaining part of the unique 12.000 year old Hambacher Forst is also in danger of being cut down. The people who have been occupying the forest to protect it are being violently harrassed by the police. This needs to stop!

So what can you do? This evening we will inform you about the possibilities for you to join the Ende Gelände mass civil disobedience actions against coal infrastructure that will take place between 19 and 24th of June this year. Together we can make a difference! We will explain practicalities about the action plans and we will share experiences of Ende Gelände last years. In addition there will be a 20min artistic performance about Ende Gelände in 2016.

"Expect the Unexpected" is a vibrant 30 minute one-man show by Kevin Thee Painter (Barcelona) that takes your hand and brings you through a multi-media experience to Ende Gelände. The performance shares with its audience: the rush of a thousand people running into the dust of Europe’s largest lignite coal mine, and the fear of confronting charging police lines, the joys of finding lost comrades and the passion that motivates those who lock their bodies onto railroad tracks.

Before the info session there is vegan dinner offered for donation!

Ende Gelände June 19th - 24th 2019
To protect the villages, the Hambach forest and our global climate there will be five days of civil disobedience to put an end to coal mining. By disrupting the operations of the Rhineland coal mining areas, we show our concerns about the extraction and combustions of coal. The urgency of climate change asks for immediate transitions, coal mining needs to stop now! For more information: https://www.ende-gelaende.org/en/action/
