A radical climate justice movement — called Ende Gelände (“Here and No Further”) — has been growing in Germany. It was founded on principles of frontline struggles, mass mobilization, direct action, and cooperation across organizational and tactical differences with local and municipal power-building strategies.

Last fall, they organized 6,000 people to collectively block a coal mine and 82 simultaneous tree sits to protect a forest from being completely bulldozed. No small feat, right? Demonstrators invaded mining pits, danced in front of the diggers, slept on the railways, and provoked pictures that made the connection between climate chaos and capitalism and exposed the dirty truth behind the German energy transition “Energiewende”.

Join the Scaling up the Resistance Tour now and let’s talk about how we can scale-up our fossil fuel resistance! See you in Pittsburgh!
