About Ende Gelände:
Over the last ten years, a strong and diverse radical climate justice movement has been growing in Germany. The last few years saw the emergence of Ende Gelände (“Here and No Further”) mass mobilizations for civil disobedience against coal mining. Wearing their emblematic white overalls, demonstrators invaded mining pits, danced in front of the diggers, slept on the railways, and provoked pictures that have raised attention globally by exposing the dirty truth behind the official tale of the German energy transition “Energiewende” and making the connection between climate chaos and capitalism.
Join German activists from Ende Gelände on their US tour as they share stories about successful mass mobilizations for climate justice, including their campaign to stop the coal mines of the Rhineland region and protect and Hambach Forest.
