Lutkemeerpolder, Netherlands: We stand in solidarity with Hambacher Forest which is at this moment being destroyed by RWE and the German state. Hambach is one of the oldest forests of Europe and is being cut for the expansion of the Hambach open pit mine. This mine produces lignite, one of the most polluting fossil fuels.

Note: Enough is Enough is not organizing any of these events, we are publishing this text for people across the US and Europe to be able to see what is going on and for documentation only.
This picture is an act of solidarity with the struggle of the Hambach Forest. In the Lutkemeerpolder, we are struggling against the same logic of exploitation as the people in Hambach and the people of Groningen and their struggle against the gas drilling. Large corporations such as RWE and Schiphol see climate as a commodity and don’t care about the world which is being destroyed. But we believe in the fact that ordinary people can stand up against this capitalist machine and fight back!
From 25th until 29th of October, Ende Gelände organizes mass action against the fossil fuel industry in the Rhineland. We will shut down the Hambach mine and fight for the survival of the forest and our planet!
