In 2018 there will be Ende Gelände mass acts of civil disobedience against coal again! We want to protect the Hambacher Forst (occupied forest in Hambach) and put an end to coal mining. Therefore we will be there when the RWE cutting season starts in October or November in the Rhineland mining area. The action will also take place if the cutting season is cancelled. Because even if this was the case, there would still be plenty of reasons to fight for the end of coal mining and climate justice now!

Germany: The anti-fascist Alliance NSU -Watch is massively criticizing Senate decisions in the first NSU trial. “This verdict is a slap in the face for relatives of those who were mirdered by the NSU and the survivors of the NSU terror,” said Caro Keller of NSU -Watch.

The small sentence for Ralf Wohlleben and André Eminger shows, “that the acts of support of two convinced National Socialists, who have carried this conviction also in the court offensive, trivialized as all but friendly turns and were depoliticized,” said Keller.
