The consensus of action is a binding framework for our days of action. We invite all people who align themselves with this agreement to participate in the Ende Gelände actions.
Ende Gelände 2022
From August 9 to 15, we will engage in resistance against fossil gas and, the construction of LNG terminals and its inherent neocolonial structures with our camp and diverse actions in the greater Hamburg area.
Our forms of action
We say what we do and do what we say. Through mass civil disobedience, we stand up against infrastructure that fuels the climate crisis and enables neocolonial and capitalist exploitative structures. Our goal is to prevent the operation and construction of fossil fuel infrastructure. To do this, we protest and obstruct with our bodies.
Possible forms of action this year may include deliberately taking climate-damaging infrastructure out of operation, even beyond our presence. Through possibilities of obtaining information in the run-up to the action and at the camp itself, each person will make a conscious decision between the different forms of action.
We will not let ourselves be stopped by structural obstacles; we will flow through and around police or plant security barriers. We act thoughtfully and do not harm people. Our actions are not directed against workers, but against fossil capital and climate injustice.
Our diverse forms of protest and action reflect our values of diversity, creativity and openness. We strive to break down barriers to allow all people to participate.
Capacities & End of Action
We pay attention to one another. Everyone should decide for themselves how to take action. We are well prepared for the action, for example through action trainings or legal workshops. We support each other in the action and keep an eye on the capacities of structures and individuals. We decide on the duration of the action of blockades together and on site in close consultation with the support structures. After the action, we process the experience together and bear repercussions collectively.
Participation by (small) groups
We invite (small) groups to enrich our action days with their forms of action. Should groups express a wish for support from the alliance, it is for individual EG and support structures to decide, based on their capacities and in close exchange with the groups, whether and how they can support them. The same applies to groups that want to maintain blockades beyond the agreed time frame and action location with or without aids (e.g. lock-ons).
We come from different social movements and political spectra and see ourselves as part of the climate justice movement. Therefore we oppose the social and ecological consequences of fossil capitalism and neocolonialism. We are in solidarity with all those who resist for a climate-just world.
In our camps and actions we envision the world we want to see. We make our decisions in a grassroots democratic way and by consensus; we try to reduce hierarchies as much as possible.
Explicitly antiracist and no room for discrimination
Our struggle for a climate justice world is antiracist, antiableist, queerfeminist, antifascist, antimilitarist and anticapitalist. We oppose all anti-Semitism and all forms of exploitation and oppression.
We are committed to being aware of and taking action against everyday and structural discrimination among ourselves and by society. We will provide space and solidarity to the people and groups among us who are affected by discrimination, for example safer spaces at our camp.
As a movement, we are actively engaged in a process of anti-racist learning, teaching, and reflection. As a part of this, we recognize structural racism and racist practices in the police. We call on white activists to reflect on their privileges when interacting with the police. If we decide to contact the police, we will carefully examine our motivation, our attitude and our goal beforehand, if necessary, together in the Deli-plenary.
To protect ourselves and others from contracting COVID-19, we adhere to the hygiene concept.
