Of islands and ghost towns: Here and no further for Germany's lignite mines

A friend of mine recently told me about her visit to a small village in Germany’s Rhineland, some 50 kilometres from Cologne. It was a beautiful summer’s day and she took a walk enjoying the peace and rural bliss around Holzweiler until a voice shouted, “I wouldn’t go there!” A man walking his dog approached. “It’s a ghost town! There’s only a few souls out there.”

Sitting in the Oxford sunshine, Ken Henshaw is telling me how proud he is of the solar panel on his Port Harcourt house. ‘In Nigeria, you are your own government and energy company!’ he jokes, describing the lengths to which he has gone to connect his home to a power source. He also had to buy a pump to access clean water, and runs his own sewage system.

Our response to the deal with Greece being reached over the debt crisis.

Last night activists from Global Justice Now and Jubilee Debt Campaign projected “Cancel Greek Debt” in giant letters against the German embassy in West London, below a a mock-up of German Chancellor Angela Merkel  as the three wise monkeys (‘see no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil’). The series of projections also included a the slogan “OXI – no to Debt and Austerity.”

Campaigners have expressed dismay today that the European Parliament ignored the voice of millions of European citizens to express a positive opinion on TTIP (the US-EU trade deal). After angry scenes in Strasburg in which MEPs accused Parliamentary president Martin Schulz of “shredding the rules of procedure”, several much fought amendments were not voted on.
