The dates for the accused activists’ criminal court case have
been scheduled now. The court case is going to take place on July 10th, 15th and 17th 2019 at 9am at district court Eschweiler.
In November 2017 a small group of activists blocked the coal power plant Weisweiler and forced RWE to almost completely shut down the power plant. The mission was named “WeShutDown”. You can find an a press review here:
Due to the activists’ action, 27,000 tons of CO2 less were emitted. The identified activists now face a civil suit (about 2 million euros for damage) as well as a criminal case. It’s obvious that RWE attempts to intimidate the growing climate justice movement. Repressions against climate activists have occured increasingly and continously in the past years. But we don’t put up with that because we are strong. Solidarity is our most powerful weapon.
The dates of the criminal court cases have been scheduled now. The court case is going to take place on July 10th, 15th and 17th 2019 at 9am at district court Eschweiler.
The activists are going to take advantage of the court case politically and take a chance to indict RWE for destroying the livelihood of millions of people worldwide. To achieve that it’s important to gain a huge public attention. That’s the reason we started the soli-campaign “WeDontShutUp”.
What can you do to support our campaign and the accused activists?
→ come to the hearings of the court case in Eschweiler – either inside the courtroom (attention, you’ll probably only get in if you reveal your personal data) or at the vigil in front of the courthouse
→ organize informative meetings: the activists would gladly come (nearly) anywhere to share their experiences with you because “A power plant blockade a day keeps the climate change away”
→ organize soli-actions: take photos, draw and hang banners, do anything crazy – the purpose is to make very clear that our movement is indestructible!
