- Day 3 Update: All 5 blockades still in place cutting the plant Schwarze Pumpe from coal supply. We are many!
- A great overview of images from today's actions at Ende Gelaä
- Hundreds of people made it inside the Schwarze Pumpe (which is reported to be running at reduced capacity due to the blockades). Thousands of people tuned in to watch the livestream as people streamed into the power station. Police have now kettled some of the protesters outside, whilst others have made it back to the Ende Gelände camp.

- Day 2: 1.50pm Local news is reporting the Cottbus police force spokesperson as saying: We are not currently planning to intervene. The lignite mine is more than 5.5km long and yesterday over 1600 people flowed into and around it. They spread themselves across the whole area. How are we supposed to intervene?" WOW.
- The second day of action is underway early. A bike finger of over 200 cyclists set off while over 1500 people formed the orange finger and set out on foot for the power plant.
Stand with the hundreds of people putting their bodies on the line in Germany and send a message to the Swedish government.
Call on Sweden to keep its climate promises and its coal reserves in the ground – forever. Sweden must honour its responsibility to Vattenfall workers by stopping the sale to EPH and ensuring a just transition to sustainable jobs.
Ende Gelände 2016
Over 3000 people are in the Lausitz region of Germany, shutting down one of Europe’s largest lignite coal mines owned by Vattenfall.
