(en) Czech, AFED: Occupied excavator -- Report on direct action against the fossil industry [machine translation]

Date Mon, 11 Nov 2019 09:07:40 +0200


On Tuesday 29 October, an autonomous group of eight climate activists occupied a mining excavator at the Vršany mine . Immediately after casting published the manifesto (the full text HERE), which is not merely the submission of specific environmental concessions requirements addressed to governments, authorities, or corporations. The manifesto is a much deeper expression of the breakup with the technocratic capitalist regime, which sees only the profits of the owners of capital in the first place and then nothing for a long time. The group, called Against Coal, bothers "how a handful of individuals blatantly exploits our planet, threatens the future of humanity and its overall existence, for profit alone. We have been observing politicians for too long about the state of climate emergency and the need to tackle climate change, but their real steps are in the opposite direction. "In particular, they spoke against the sale of the Pocerady coal-fired power plant to Pavel Tykac At the same time, they declared themselves "part of the global anti-capitalist climate justice movement. The capitalist system is the cause of the climate crisis. We will not do anything without changing the climate crisis system. "Their struggle for" a world without oppression in which everyone is truly equal and people live in harmony with the rest of nature "was illustrated on the excavator by displaying banners" Capitalism won't save the climate "and" No borders, no nations. Solidarity with Rojawa '.

The group reported on the occupation of the excavator, with the addition of photos and videos, in its social network accounts. Recall that the nights were freezing. So warm sleeping bags came in handy. Winter, however, did not spoil the atmosphere, as did the realization of a collective photo with the inscription "Coal belongs to the ground!" On the bare backs of the activists. The event ended after 60 hours on Thursday, 31 October, as the Ministry of Environment postponed the deadline for the decision to issue an emission exemption for the Chvaletice power plant, which was one of the main reasons for the occupation of the excavator, especially in terms of timing. Immediately afterwards the police arrested them.
