“Facing the devastating consequences of climate change, civil disobedience against coal is not only legitimate but the watchword of our day. RWE now tries to criminalize climate activists who stand up against one of the dirtiest of all fossil fuels: German lignite mines. Don’t be intimidated, and continue your powerful campaigns for climate justice!”
