For years, the RWE, a huge Electricity Company in Germany, has been clearing villages and forests on a massive scale to be able to mine brown coal. These ridiculous operations have been demonstrated against by environmentalists and villagers but it couldn’t be stopped. I will quote Sabine Schür speaking for the Action Alliance “All villages stay” :
“It is so difficult to explain this very extensive problem in a short way. The position of RWE as a large corporation and joint-stock company, the associated networking of business and politics, RWE as Europe's largest CO2 producer, the expulsion of people, the extermination of villages ( Keyenberg, Kuckum, Beverath, Unterwestrich, Oberwestrich, Lützerath), the destruction of churches and cultural goods, the slow dehydration of the Hambach Forest and the criminalization of climate activists.... reveal the system error. The further combustion of fossil fuels (brown coal...) must be stopped as soon as possible. Various studies (DIW) make it clear that we can end lignite electricity generation faster than 2038 and preserve these villages and this forest.
Unfortunately, the current government in Germany sees this differently, they should be ashamed of themselves. That's why we take to the streets and try to stop this madness.
This earth is far too beautiful not to fight for your preservation.
In order to get an idea of this destruction, one would have to look at the open-cast mining holes (Inden, Hambach, Garzweiler I and II) on site. The open-cast holes are so huge that you can see them from space. “
On August 30th, a demonstration will be held. Put aside your fears, just keep your distance or wear your mask if you feel it necessary, but go and add to the count of demonstrators. Whether you can or can’t make it, please SHARE this!
Alle Dörfer Bleiben! Kommt und kämpft mit uns!
Thank you on behalf of our Mother and all kindred souls!
