On the second weekend of May, thousands of people from across Europe gathered in a small corner of Lusatia, close to the German border with Poland. They were there for a weekend of anti-coal stunts and actions including a climate camp and demonstrations, next to one of the most polluting coal mines in Europe. In parallel, many participated a direct action under the banner of Ende Gelände (here and no further) with the aim of shutting down the mine – and they succeeded.
