Germany is about to invest millions of euros to support fracking and the destruction of the planet

This Friday, June 7, the German Bundesrat will vote to allow American fracking gas to be imported into Germany by investing 130 million euros to build 3 LNG terminals to process it, an extremely dangerous infrastructure to be built in densely populated areas.
Germany has been under intense pressure from Trump to start buying the US fracking gas, turning all German gas consumers into unknowing supporters of one the world’s most contaminating industries and leading contributors to global warming.
At a time when we should be divesting from fossil fuels and moving toward renewable energies, it is absolutely unacceptable for the German government to do the exact opposite, and use taxpayers’ money to finance infrastructure for the consumption of a product that will support and expand fracking operations around the globe.
Students from Fridays for Future have launched a campaign to stop this suicidal decision, and we must all support them!
Please sign the petition and join us on Friday, June 7, outside of the Bundesrat to protest this move.

Time: Friday, June 7, 9:30 – 12:00
Location: Berlin, Germany, in front of the Bundesrat
Participating organisations: DiEM25, Extinction Rebellion, Fossil Free, Fridays for Future Deutschland, Fossil Free Berlin, Deutsche Umwelthilfe and more.
