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.

Ende Gelände organized 6000 people to block a coal mine. Together with the Hambach Forest Occupation and it's dozens of tree-sits, local Resistance and national mobilizations, the German Climate movement is on the brink of stopping coal. 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”.
