deCOALonize Dortmund!

CLOSE EUROPEAN COAL PORTS!

SHUT DOWN HARD COAL-FIRED POWER PLANTS!
DECOALONIZE!

The Climate Network Ruhr calls for a bicycle demonstration against

hard coal imports as part of the deCOALonize Europe days of action!

*Start: Friday, October 04, 13:00, Dortmund Friedensplatz*

*Destination: Datteln 4 hard coal-fired power plant*

The last mines are closed. But power companies like Steag,
Uniper and RWE continue to burn the climate killer hard coal undisturbed
in seven power plants in the Ruhr area alone. And the municipal energy supplier
are among the largest shareholders.

The coal is imported 100% from countries such as Colombia and Russia,
USA and South Africa, where dismantling under catastrophic conditions takes place:
areas are being devastated,
the livelihoods of many people destroyed and local resistance brutally crushed. The
profits from the dirty business flow directly
into the countries of the of the global North. According to the coal commission of the German Federal government,
this should still be possible until 2038!

WE CONSIDER THIS TO BE IRRESPONSIBLE – ESPECIALLY IN TIMES OF THE CLIMATE CRISIS!

Hardly 20 kilometres from Dortmund’s city centre,

a new coal-fired power station has been under construction in Datteln for years. We go to the scene
and declare our solidarity with the people
in the mining regions. Together we set a sign for the fast
phase-out from import and combustion of hard coal!

PS: We go in any weather! Please bring a roadworthy
Bicycle, weatherproof clothing and provisions for a picnic with.
