When the Dome res(is)ted
And the dome came dangerously close to the open-cast mine: For its first stop in the Hambach forest, it was erected on the BUND resistance acre about a 10-minute walk from the camp – the only property near the mine that RWE has so far been unable to buy up.
Upon arrival, the participants learn what the resistance acre is all about. Afterwards, everyone is invited to join the discussion group under the dome. And the Europe-Dome is well filled! Topic no. 1: Climate protection, of course. But democracy, co-determination and the various political decision-making levels are not neglected either. The day shows once more how young people from all over Europe are also keen to discuss and are not afraid to express their opinions.
At the end of the event, the tipi is dismantled for one night at dusk. A lonely “sheriff” visits us one last time and enthusiasticly asks about our project. Maybe another guest for the following Dome Talk?
We are curious what the next meeting with the young activists will produce.
