This is a crucial moment. Our addiction to fossil fuels finances wars, causes our cost of living to skyrocket and leads directly to climate collapse costing lives.
Our government aims to build new pipelines and terminals, strives to drill for oil in the North Sea, fires up coal power plants and focuses on endless growth. Without us: We want to live!
What will happen?
From September 17-20th, we'll do what works: We disrupt. We will disrupt the government in Berlin exactly where they work, the lobbies where they want to push through their interests and the corporations where their bosses pulling the strings.
Olaf Scholz calls climate protests "stagings by the same black-clad people"  but we will show that people from all classes and walks of life are fed up and rebel to survive. We are going back to the XR roots and will create colorful, friendly and open actions so everyone can join us.
We will meet again in a camp and come together to live regenerative cultures. No matter, if you are cooking or joining a blockade: You are needed in Berlin - however you want to participate.

What do we want to achieve?
While everyone is talking about pumping more money into fossil fuels, we want to be a strong opposing voice and make clear that now is the time to break free from our fossil addiction and not send ourselves to our own suicide with new pipelines and terminals.
We want to achieve that the government finally establishes a citizens' assembly on the ecological emergency! Our lives should be decided in a grassroots democratic way and without the influence of lobbies and corporations because we see how the government decides too short-term and is too caught up in factional pressure and corporate influence.
Can we make it work?
Our strategy works: April 2019, the streets of London are shut down. Less than two weeks later, the British Parliament declares a climate emergency. October 2019, Berlin is gridlocked, and two months later, Berlin becomes the first German federal state to declare a climate emergency.
The time to get moving is now. Many are frustrated and disappointed with the government. It is time to take everyone with us and rebel. We know a better future is possible! And our third demand, a citizens' assembly, is closer than ever. One was already running in Berlin, another will be run in Saarland, and citizens' assemblies are in the coalition agreement of our government. None of this would have happened without our pressure, and now it's time to take it to another level.
But to make it work we urgently need your support! We have learned a lot throughout the pandemic, but many people have also left. So find a role and join us:
“ Civil disobedience is not only a moral choice, it is also the most powerful way of shaping world politics.”
– Christiana Figueres (led the international negotiations on the Paris climate agreement)
There are decades when nothing happens and there are weeks when decades happen.
