Unist’ot’en ​​against Chevron and Enbridge

Sovereignty, self-sufficiency, self-determination.
DeutschFrançais

The Unis’tot’en ​​(C’ihlts’ehkhyu / Big Frog Clan) in Canada defend their country against Enbridge, Pacific Trails Pipeline (Chevron), Tar Sands Gigaproject and LNG. “Wet’suwet’en territory, which extends from Burns Lake to the Coastal Mountains, is sovereign territory which has never been ceded to the colonial Canadian state; the Wet’suwet’en are not under treaty with the Canadian government. Their territory, therefore, is and always will be free, and belongs to the Wet’suwet’en people alone.” They just defend their own country.
Since 2009, the Unist’ot’en clan of the Wet’suwet’en ​​hold a permanent community in the way of three approved projects: Northern Gateway (6.1 billion $) of Enbridge, Pacific Trail Pipeline (1.15 billion $) of Chevron and Coastal GasLink (3.7 billion $) of Trans Canada. These pipeline projects were planned through the territory of the Wet’suwet’en. Since the early 19th century the Canadian government tries to expell the Indigenous, who defend themselves by all possible means against it.

Farewell to the silence

One year after the opening of highway A4

PRESS RELEASE
Buir: “Farewell to the silence – one year after the opening of highway A4”

On September 16, 2014, the new route of the A4 was officially inaugurated. At the invitation of the action group “Buirers for Buir”, on the evening before a farewell to the silence took place as a neighborhood meeting. It should be remembered this year with a neighborhood church service, followed by a picnic on the evening of 15 September.
It is one year ago now, that on the eve of the A4 inauguration members of the action group, along with many neighbors and friends from the lignite-critical network, said farewell to the silence in Buir on the Olbertze Bridge. With “Farewell to the silence – One Year After” should be reminded of the event one year ago. more…

Ende Gelände is a great success of the environmental movement. We of the Interventionist Left were there and want to take a preliminary stock of the campaign. We are looking forward to your feedback and hope in the future we can fight together with you against coal, climate change and capitalism.

On August 15, 2015, we set out with more than 1,000 people from the Climate Camp in Lützerath (Rhineland) to set an unmistakable sign against the devastating lignite industry. We overcame a highway and numerous police cordons, we descended in the apocalyptic coal mine of Garzweiler and finally we blocked there more…

Plane Stupid blocks Heathrow Airport

planestupid.com (“bringing the aviation industry back down to earth!”) blocked heathrow airport today.

As you’re reading this I am sitting in a police cell. I was one of the 12 people from Plane Stupid who were responsible for breaking onto the runway yesterday morning at Heathrow Airport and holding up flights.
The reason we decided to take what might seem like such extreme action is quite simple: we cannot build anymore new airport runways if we are serious about averting climate catastrophe. This action was a message to the Government who now have to make a decision based on a public debate that until now has virtually ignored the climate change implications. Heathrow versus Gatwick? We can’t expand either if we still remain serious about stopping climate change. more

CALLOUT to Pyhäjoki / Finland

A callout by our friends in Finland to fly by at their camp against a newly built nuclear power plant in Pyhäjoki.

CALLOUT: July approaches, the eviction threat grows – get yourself to Hanhikivi post-haste!

Fennovoima-Rosatom’s nuclear power project is now at a critical point.
Fennovoima is supposed to hand over the keys – symbolical and concretical – to Rosatom on the 1st of July. However, Rosatom wants – as agreed – the area without troublesome extra attachments.

Requirements for a police-assisted eviction are however not quite ready yet. The people still holding on to their lands and cottages in the area have been sent a message by Fennovoima, in which is demanded that the last missing cottage-keys be surrendered to the company at the latest on Friday 26th of June. If this does not happen, the issue will proceed to the Distraint Authorities [the authority managing forced collection of debts, taxes, etc.] according to Fennovoima. more…

CrimethInc in Hambacher Forest

The CrimethInc collective produced a 97 minutes podcast on the Hambacher Forest. Have fun!

In this episode, the Ex-Worker offers an in-depth profile of the struggle to defend the Hambacher Forest. In the Rhineland coal country of western Germany, a group of angry locals, environmentalists, anarchists and squatters have converged to challenge the destruction of one of the region’s oldest forests by the energy giant RWE’s brown coal mining. In these moving interviews recorded live in the Hambacher Forest in spring 2014, Clara gets a tour of the occupation and discusses the recent history of actions and broader political context. Through insightful and often hilarious informal conversations, the occupiers point out distinctive features of the forest, show the gritty and frequently comical day to day realities of squatter life, discuss their personal motivations for resisting the destruction of the forest, and offer poignant insight into the logic of resistance as a way of life. The episode concludes with recent updates from the occupation, ways to participate and show solidarity, and reflections on its significance for radicals across the world. {June 15th, 2015}
