AktivistInnen von ROBIN WOOD haben heute Vormittag zwischen Säulen vor dem RWE-Tower in Essen ein Banner mit der Aufschrift „Capitalism kills climate“ gespannt. Zusammen mit Aktiven am Boden fordern sie den Ausstieg aus der Kohle und das Ende des blinden Wachstumswahns von Politik und Konzernen. Ihre Kritik richten sie gegen die Logik, in der private Profitinteressen über Gemeinwohl und Klimagerechtigkeit stehen.
We will introduce “Zucker im Tank” and tell you why we are here, how you can get active and how we can support you.
For the action days this year and the climate camps many people from across Europe will come to Rhineland. We hope that again diverse and strong actions will give a hard time to the company RWE. Only, most of the activists will leave after 29th of August – the struggle against coal seems to be an event that only takes place once a year.
We want to use the presence of hundreds of activists in Hambacher Forst to prepare for the next cutting season. We need supporters and fellows to be able to oppose the company RWE. We will need diverse ideas and forms of action. There is much to be done. Be it to build platforms, prepare actions, build contacts and networks. Let us deal with the imminent repression openly and in solidarity. If the state tries to separate and weaken us with court cases, police violence and zivil law suits we should get together and support each other as much as possible.
The massive number of activists will be accompanied by a massive number of police. Last year showed that also prosecution uses its presence to act against occupations. Directly after the Ende Gelände action days in 2016 the LAUtonomia forest occupation in Lusatia (Lausitz) was evicted. We don’t want to give the police the opportunity to repeat this procedure in the rhineland. Therefore we need many people who stay longer than only during the climate camps. The danger to be confronted with an overpowering police action will be reduced if we continue our presence in the forest after the camps. If only for some days, weeks or longer: Come into Hambacher Forst and let the struggle for climate justice not only be a festival event but carry it 365 days a year around in the woods, on the streets, the diggers and railways!
We offer a workshop on custody in Germany. We think this topic is important because repression is not declining. This workshop will allow you to benefit from experiences of others and reflect yourself.
At the area workshop we introduce you to the specialities of the Rhineland coal infrastructure. We explain the territory, show how coal excavation infrasctucture is built, how a coal pit is shaped etc.
An action sometimes needs practical tools to work. In this workshop we give you practical help on building helpful items.
During the Action days the media will be focussing on us. In this skillshare we want to consider how we can deal with the press and – if we want – how to work with media and / or the press.
