Cheap flights and expensive trains in Europe: The climate pays the price difference!2015-06-18 19:06:06
One can travel 50 times the same trip by train as one trip by plane, for example between two European capitals. If you only look at the effects on the climate. EU environment agency fears a rise in air trips of up to 270% from 2012 to 2050 if this trend is not reversed.
At the same time trains are closed between European countries. For half a year ago stopped for example the night train from Denmark to the south. Despite the fact that there had never been more passengers! And the trend is the same in the rest of Europe. The politicians have not dared to speak transport in the Danish election campaign and the transport companies just give up! No stakes on the trains as the climate-friendly alternative to planes.
This coming weekend's action in Europe will support trains across Europe. At Copenhagen Central Station, we make beds up on the platform, get dressed in pajamas and ask: Where is the night train to Münich / Basel / Amsterdam etc.? In pajamas, we go singing around and talk to passengers in the entrance hall. Halfway in the program we connect to the Berlin Hbh. and Paris Gare ‘Est, who also lost their night train, and hear what they are doing down there in Europe?
Support a climate-action near you about a completely overlooked problem in the climate debate = transport across borders in Europe!
Time and place: Central Station track 7½ out between the hall and Tietgensbro Saturday. 20.6. pm. 18:45 to 21:00 and in the same time twice in the station hall. Speakers in Copenhagen, Kjeld Allan Larsen, Council for Sustainable Traffic and Jette Gotsche, Danish Cyclists Federation and others.
Odense Railway Station track 5 on Saturday. 20.6. pm. 19:00.
Elsewhere in Europe, take a look at the list below!

Sign the all-European petition:
Goodbye to the “Danish” night train?2014-10-26 19:20:30
In a week’s time, during the night of 2 and 3 November the last two night trains to / from Denmark will meet somewhere in Germany. The last night train departs from Copenhagen via Odense and Kolding southbound on Sunday evening d. 2 November.
Our petition has been a fine manifestation and have as at now collected 8,000 signatures, but it has not prevented DB and DSB from terminating the train. For my part, I will stop the petition when the last train has departed.
I have taken steps to ensure that in Denmark we demonstrate the last departure. We will stand on the platforms and say goodbye - and hope to see the train soon again!
In Copenhagen our arrangement consists of these two elements:
Sunday. 2.11. at 18.15. Location: Below the clock, in the Main Hall.
A dance for the night train: Our manifestation in Copenhagen begins with a very special event. All guests at Copenhagen Central Station on Sunday evening at. 18:15 will witness the crowds under the clock suddenly burst out into dancing to James Brown's old soul number 'Night Train'. We welcome more volunteers for this little dance flashmob, so if you can set aside a few hours the same day from 3 PM to practice a funny and easy small dance, then look it up and register at https://www.facebook.com/events/616564321799051/
Or write to the organizer Nina: email@example.com
Sunday. 2.11. 18:30. Location: Track 7, in the middle of the platform.
Goodbye to the night train? A worthy protest with banners, signs, live music and two short speeches.
Register at https://www.facebook.com/events/369297779904837/ or just show up!
The train departs at 18.46. The manifestation ends when the music is at an end.
The train leaves towards Germany and we also have demonstrations along the route:
Odense on track 5 20:15 to 20:28 (until departure)
Kolding at track 1 20:55 to 21:10 (until departure)
