Pödelwitz, October 8, 2020
In the morning of 8.10. we set fire to the cables of the transformer station of the open pit coal mine Vereinigtes Schleenhain near Pödelwitz. As a result, the lights in the mine went out and everything is at a standstill.
The Corona crisis showed that it is possible to react with drastic measures when people are dying. There is no reaction to the much more far-reaching climate crisis because it will only drastically affect the next generation.
Thousands of people are already dying because of climate change, be it through crop failures, natural disasters or fleeing from them. Only these deaths are not beside us.
The money of the old white men plays the larger role here. Dinosaur technology can only be held on to as long as the state subsidizes it. Other struggles have shown that something only moves when the resistance is big enough. Every attack against the coal lobby is also an attack against the state.
Coal phase-out or not – it is too slow and too tepid. Coal mining and burning is outdated and unnecessary and a huge source of CO2 emissions. We have made sure that the mine is already at a standstill.
All villages stay.
The next generation
