Lützerath lives! The world is watching and fighting for #climatejustice!

The village of #Lützerath, in Germany has become a crystallization point in the global fight against coal and other #fossilfuels.

🧵 (1/9)
(2/9) It is on the brink of the biggest coal mines in Europe which are owned by the biggest #CO2 emitter in Europe, the fossil fuel megacompany #RWE.
(3/9) The village was occupied by climate activists for 2,5 years to stop RWE from digging the coal under Lützerath in solidarity with the fights of indigenous and most affected people in the #GlobalSouth

Forcibly bringing awareness of the impending uninhabitability of earth into spaces that aren't designated for political discussion -- spaces which can easily be tuned out & ignored -- is infuriating to those who're determined to block it out & avoid a sense of day-to-day urgency.
Earlier this week, a #climatecollapse protest was held in a museum. Today, it's at a car company. And tomorrow?

What really concerns the people most infuriated about these early-stage protests is that it will reach into *their* lives, shake them up, & make them NEED to change.
They see how the media calls these #ClimateEmergency activists terrorists, & they see how a cowardly public echoes those calls. Nobody wants to be a target of that kind of hate, however unjustified.

Being made to feel the sense of urgency that could cause them to stand up? 😬😱

Well as my last attempt⤵️to #StopTheWar in #Ukraine failed to get any traction I thought my 2nd attempt should start with a bang or in the words of #DrStrangelove"How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb"
2/n It seems I am not scary enough to scare sense into some participants of the current war, I thought trying to use a selection of #GNUTerryPratchett words from #Discworld #Jingo & #Hogfather along with some horrors of war concepts might persuade #WarCriminals in the conflict
3/n that a better path might be available to them and others if the war ended quickly but as another Author @Kurt_Vonnegut said of horrors in another War #SoItGoes🤷‍♂️
I started with the words
From the #WarGames film

"The economic rescue packages to deal with the impact of the #coronavirus must also be green, a growing chorus of environmental campaigners have urged", writes @fionaharvey in the @guardian.

We would like to add some points to that.…
The airline industry has a history of tax avoidance and of seeking and obtaining special treatment while treating workers badly.

Now the same managers who have been lining their pockets for years are asking for billions of taxpayers' money to save their airlines.
The current situation requires collaborative planning for a #JustTransition:
▪️employees in the #aviation sector should receive training for climate friendly jobs,
▪️privatisations have to be reconsidered and
▪️a shift towards climate-safe forms of travel has to be undertaken.

1 #EUelections a message to UK voters from Germany.

For anyone who actually cares about what happens to #Europe & the world:
the #EUelection is NOT A PROXY 2ND REFERENDUM.

Your vote will NOT deliver #Brexit / stop Brexit.
The EU Parliament does NOT have these powers.

2 But your vote in the #EUelection2019 DOES have real-world consequences.

Right now, under the Spitzenkandidat system, the EPP's #ManfredWeber, of the right-wing anti-immigrant pro-backroom-lobby Bavarian CSU - is on course to become the next EU Commission president. 😖
3 If #ManfredWeber becomes Commission president, it's curtains for any chance of saving the world from #ClimateCollapse.

His CSU are way to the right of Merkel - & literally in the pocket of the German auto industry.

For good measure, Weber is also mates with #ViktorOrban 🤢
