Just before the COP23 climate conference got underway in Bonn, an action alliance protest march called Ende Gelände got underway. Activists from around the world managed to temporarily shut down the Hambach lignite coal mine. It’s situated in the Rhineland coalfields, just 60 kilometers away from where delegates were arriving for the international summit. DW’s Natalie Carney was there.
