Fingers Overview 2020

For many years we have been using the finger concept in our actions. It means that we go out in several “demonstration groups” (= fingers) and go to different blockade locations to block more effectively. Fingers usually have a color, such as the “silver finger”. Last year there were six fingers in the Rhineland (action in June) and seven fingers in Lusatia (action in November ). Due to the Corona pandemic there will be much more fingers this year – this is part of our hygiene concept. Usually it does not matter, which finger you choose, but this time there will be fingers with specific target groups. We are also expanding our action targets to include gas infrastructure as well as coal infrastructure.
.

Which fingers are there?

the finger of the Anti Coal Kidz (for young people)
the colourful finger (for people in wheelchairs, among others)
the fingers for internationals
fingers that block the natural gas infrastructure
and all other fingers without specific target group or goals.

The Anti Coal Kidz Finger („Anti Kohle Kidz“)

We are the Anti Kohle Kidz, AKK for short. We exist since 2019 and we see ourselves as a specially organized part of Ende Gelände. We want to offer young people in particular the opportunity to take part in Ende Gelände. More information available here.

If you coordinate your travel in advance as a large group with buses or train, please read here!
If you are traveling as an individual or in a small affinity group and want to join the Anti Kohle Kidz, please address to the welcome point in Cologne to be assigned to the right base station.

The Colorful Finger

The Colorful Finger should be open for people who do not have the capacity to walk for miles over fields, edges and through police chains and tries to think along with the needs of wheelchair users, people on crutches and physically limited people. More information is available here.

The colorful finger would be pleased when you announce your arrival. Please write therefore and also if you have any questions regarding your arrival or accommodation to bunt@ende-gelaende.org (PGP-key – encryption recommended)). More information is available here

People who want to join the colorful finger, please address to the welcome point in Mönchengladbach to be assigned to the right base station.

.

The Fingers For Internationals

There will be at least one finger that communicates primarily in English. To what extent English is also spoken in other fingers is still unclear.
If you have been in a corona risk area in the past 14 days please stay at home. Please check the list of the Robert-Koch-Institute (23.Sept.2020).

The International Finger would be pleased if you announce your arrival, as we would like to organize your accommodation through a bed exchange: bettenboerse2020@riseup.net (PGP-key – encryption recommended). More information is available here.

If you are traveling as an individual or in a small affinity group and want to join the International finger, please address to the welcome point in Cologne to be assigned to the right base station.

The Fingers that block natural gas infrastructure

In recent years, Ende Gelände has focused on coal. It should not be forgotten that natural gas is also a fossil fuel that fuels the climate and increases global injustice. Fossil gas is not a bridging technology for us and certainly should not be expanded. Therefore, in addition to the many fingers blocking coal infrastructure, fingers will also block natural gas infrastructure. Please be prepared to run in such a finger as well, as they will not be identified before.
