31/08/2013 Manheim. Second Day of the Actions Days in the Rhineland Coalfield. Around 300 activists are occupying the coal train tracks which is the main way to transport coal between the open-cast coal mine “Hambach” to the big power plants which emit 100 millions tons of CO2 per year. The action is happening in solidarity with the Climate and Reclaim the Fields Camp that is taking place from August 23 to September 6, 2013 in the Rhineland coalfield.
Starting on Friday the 23 August, the third Climate Camp takes place in Manheim, near Cologne. The start of the climate camp was restricted by the requirements of the assembly authority who forbade camping at the meeting. Although the camp is now taking place for the third time, this ban, which is suspended due to the outcome of a final judicial decision, could be prevented by a lawsuit.
This conflict forced the Climate Camp to withdraw to an adjacent private meadow. At the planned location only an information tent and a tech-tent were allowed to remain. The workshop tents had to be removed even though they were not designed as sleeping facilities.
Op woensdag 19 Juni vind er een informatieavond plaats in Nijmegen over het Rijnlandse bruinkoolwinning gebied, het klimaat Camp en het Reclaim the Fields kamp en de Reclaim Power Tour. Idee is om een groep op te zetten die zich fietsend vanaf Nijmegen aansluit bij de Reclaim the Power Tour in Essen en vervolgens samen naar beide kampen toerijdt.

Reclaim the Fields and AusgeCO2hlt invite you to an actioncamp in Rhineland, close to Cologne (Germany), from 23.8. until 6.9. 2013. For three days we will take collective direct action against the open cast mining in Rhineland. Furthermore there will be a program including different practical and theoretical workshops, discussions and a lot more.
The Reclaim the Fields bulletins aims at facilitating the information transmission between the stars of the constellation, sharing the latest news and the current state of the process amongst the people or collectives already involved and allowing new people to catch up and join us, having at disposition the necessary background texts and a history of the debates.
