Defend Lützerath [Germany]

Lützerath. Germany. After the long struggle to save the Hambacher forest, the focus of many activists changed to Lützerath, a small village which is to be demolished for a brown coal open pit mine: Grazweiler. Many villages and major parts of the Hambacher forest (only the last minor part was saved in 2018) were already destoyed by RWE‘s open pit mines. Lützerath is completely occupied, but the interior minister of the German state North Rhine-Westphalia, Herbert Reul, announced that a huge police force will evict Lützerath in January. Defend Lützerath! Defend ZADrheinland! Enough 14.

On blockades, rescue lanes and a staged media outrage [Riot Turtle]

Berlin. On October 31, a woman was seriously injured (This original German version of this article was written before the woman passed away, Enough 14) after being hit by a concrete mixer in Berlin. Such accidents are always a tragedy. It is even more tragic when a rescue truck is stuck because there is no rescue lane in a traffic jam caused by a blockade. In this case a blockade by Last Generation activists. Activists always have a responsibility when they carry out an action. They always have to weigh things up. There is no doubt about that. I sincerely hope that the injured woman will fully recover, but there is no justification for the death threats against climate activists by far-right radicals fed by a dishonest media outrage and political clowns screaming for harsher punishments.

Climate strike: How to continue? What is the next step? [Wuppertal, Germany]

Wuppertal. Germany. Yesterday (September 23, 2022) I joined the climate strike demo in Wuppertal. I had to pull myself together to go to the demo. The climate movement is in a crisis and in my opinion the Fridays For Future (FFF) demos have become a kind of ritual, without the necessary anger and power. Thoughts after the FFF demo in Wuppertal.

Climate depression? A response to Tadzio Müller’s Coming out No. 6

The #ClimateEndgame is in full swing, one heat wave after another. Drought, floods. War is back in Europe, the ruling class is responding with a gigantic rollback to fossil fuels, driving people into poverty by making them pay for decades of failed energy policies. It’s not just dependence on Russian gas, fossil fuel dependence represents failed policies for all living organisms on this planet. Riot Turtle responds to Tadzio Mueller‘s Coming out No. 6: Hi, my name is Tadzio, and I’m suffering from climate depression.
