MASS ACTION OF CIVIL DISOBEDIENCE AGAINST COAL MINING

In 2015, the 21st COP (UN-Climate Summit) will take place in Paris. We
expect the results to be pathetic. And while global CO2 emissions from
more and more coal-fired power plants are rising dramatically, we take
climate justice into our own hands. It is high time to be serious about
phasing out coal!

In a big colourful action of civil disobedience we will obstruct the
exploitation of lignite (soft coal) with many hundred people. Thus we
will resist one of the crucial root causes of climate change. We will
use a variety of actions forms about which we will communicate in an
open and reliable way. Let’s make the Rhineland the focal point of a
strong and powerful anti-coal-movement!

In context with the mass action there will be a Climate Camp and a
Degrowth Summer School. A wide coalition of groups, organisations and
individuals is already involved in the preparation.

*We need YOU to take part in the action, and to co-operate in the joined
process of preparing a summer of climate justice. You are more than
welcome to come to our next meeting, on February 14-15. (The place will
be announced soon)*

*Put these dates into your calendar now, take your holidays in August,
join us!
