Sugar in the fuel tank!

This year, again, the movement for climate justice has intensified further. Many climate camps and actions against global capitalism – organized in mass actions as well as small affinity groups – have taken place, and there’s no end to be foreseen. We’re getting more in number and more multifaceted. That’s great!

We continue focusing on the support of unpredictable, direct and creative actions anytime and anywhere.
Our common basis with other players is the insight that climate change needs to be confronted right where it is created. And it’s never been only about lignite excavation … we welcome that also issues like industrial farming, hard coal and traffic are being targeted by the movement more and more.
