Demonstration October 6: Save #HambacherForest – #EndCoal!

Although we ussually don’t publish calls of NGO’s like Greenpeace Or BUND, we make an exemption for this demo, as it’s on the same day as the action of Ende Gelaende, October 6, 2018. The demo will be really big and creates headaches for the cops. Where to concentrate on? There are many tweets and Facebook event pages about travel options to Hambacher Forest on October 6. There will also be a bus from Amsterdam.

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.

People have blockaded the further destruction of Hambacher forest for more than 6 years and have built over 60 treehouses to protect it from the expansion of the mine. Even though thousands of people have put their bodies on the line to end the coal extraction, and more than 750.000 people signed a petition against it, the German government and the company RWE continue their dirty business.

Over the last weeks, the police have supported the coal company, to clear the blockades and the tree houses to prepare the clearing of the forest for further expansion of their mining operations. In order to raise the stakes, most of the German environmental NGOs agreed to have a mass demonstration together near Hambach on the 6th of October!
