Save the climate disobediently!

This summer we will send out a clear message together with hundreds of people for a consequent coal exit through our action Kohle erSetzen! (rePlace coal!).

Especially the power generation through coal significantly heats up the global climate change, which is one of the biggest challenges of our time. Furthermore in the Rhineland, literally on our doorstep, complete villages are still being relocated and ecosystems are still being destroyed.

Similar to the symptoms of an exploitative generation systems accumulating in the Rhenish lignite (brown coal) district, the diverse resistance will come together at the end of August: a human chain, track blockades, a bike demonstration, actions of smaller groups and our sit-in!

Disobediently we will block a coal power station. Together we place ourselves onto the access roads and demand clearly: rePlace coal! (Kohle erSetzen!

We will organize ourselves in affinity groups and support each other. Whether young people, experienced activists, blockade beginners or people who signed a cease-and-desist declaration of RWE: in a decisive and joint fashion we will be disobedient and not open the road when police asks us to do so.

Let’s fight nonviolently and in solidarity for climate justice on the streets!

Mark it in your calendar: To be well prepared for starting the action, manage to be in the Climate Camp not later than Thursday at 6pm (24th August).
