End Coal Now: Take action in Germany!

This August, a series of direct actions, organised by Ende Gelande, will be taking place in the Rhineland, near Cologne, Germany, to put a stop to coal mining in the Rhineland. The area is the biggest emitter of carbon dioxide in the world, despite Germany having taken the reins in the fight against climate change.

From the 7th to the 17th, Klimacamp, will be taking place in the Rhineland Coal Fields. Ende Gelaende have provided some useful information about the camp here, and more can be found here, too.

Alternatively, from the 9th to the 14th in the Rhineland's lignite-mining area a Degrowth in Action summer school on climate action will be happening.

Finally, the build up to this will culminate on the 15th in the above-mentioned lignite-mining area where activists will form human blockades and chains to prevent further extraction of the coal. Attendance to either of these camps is of course not a prerequisite to join in on the direct action on this day, but hey - might as well make a holiday out of it, right?

For more information you can visit the Ende Gelande Facebook or Twitter pages.

NEW: Some people are looking into booking a bus from the UK.
