Protect Lützerath – keep the 1.5 degree limit! Protest on Nov 12th, 12pm in Lützerath

Oppose the absurdity of the current energy policy with strong protest! In a strong demonstration in solidarity with the global civil society for climate justice we gather on Nov. 12th in Lützerath. The coal under Lützerath must stay in the ground – for climate justice worldwide!

Eine Demo in Lützerath, die Menschen tragen OP-Masken. Eine Person hält ein gelbes X in die Kamera, auf dem steht "1,5°C Grenze – Lützi bleibt!". Die Infos auf dem Sharepic lauten: Von Lützi bis zur UN-Klimakonferenz – Die Demo zur COP27 – 12.11. Demo, 12 Uhr in Lützerath, Shuttlebusse ab Erkelenz.
(Engl.: From Lützi to the UN Climate Conference: Protest 12am in Lützerath. Shuttles from Erkelenz)

While the United Nations is hosting the World Climate Conference (COP27) in Egypt, the German government is ignoring the critical 1.5 degree limit in the Rhineland: In a backroom deal with the coal company RWE, the government has agreed to mine an additional 280 million tons of the climate killer lignite in the Garzweiler open pit mine alone. Six times more than would be permissible to comply with the 1.5-degree limit of the international climate agreement. This is precisely why we are showing where Germany’s responsibility lies: in Lützerath at the Garzweiler II open pit mine. The government and RWE want the village to be demolished – a madness in view of increasing storms, droughts and heat waves. With thousands of people, we will stand in front of the village, which is under acute threat of demolition, on November 12.

Millions of people worldwide are already losing their livelihoods and homes due to the climate crisis, and the climate catastrophe already means hell for many. It is an illusion that burning coal has anything to do with “energy security”.

Let’s counter the absurdity of the current energy policy with our powerful protest! In a strong demonstration in solidarity with global civil society for climate justice, let’s gather in Lützerath on Nov. 12. The coal under Lützerath must stay in the ground – for climate justice worldwide!

++ Ende Gelände in court ++ Prosecution of climate protest is a no-go for democracy ++ Trials against activists, journalists and MPs near Leipzig begin ++

12. October 2022 "What is criminal is when energy companies like MIBRAG make profits with dirty lignite and burn up the planet for their profits. Ende Gelände opposes the climate crimes of the fossil corporations time and again. It is completely absurd that activists are therefore criminalized and put on trial. We will not be intimidated. On the contrary, the climate justice movement is getting bigger and stronger." Continue reading ...
