In 2016, the farewell to coal continues: Vattenfall, owner of the coal field in Lusatia is trying to sell its German lignite coal branch. This is a unique chance to finally close down opencast pits and coal power stations, and to show that it is possible to phase-out coal in a socially and ecologically responsible manner.
Yet, Vattenfall is only looking to sell: A new investor is supposed to carry on the centralistic, destructive energy system for decades to come. This deal would be the biggest investment in coal in the who
le of Europe – meaning more resettlements, new power stations, pollution of drinking water and climate disaster.
We say: That’s enough! Don‘t sell. Put an end to coal - „Ende Gelände“! If Vattenfall wants to close its business in Lusatia just to leave the dirty job to someone else, we will put our foot in the door. And we will step on the toes of the leaders in current climate politics. For we can neither wait for nor trust in their politics.
