In Canada’s tar sands region, the largest ever proposed open-pit mine has been shelved, thanks to people power. What would've been Latin America’s largest open-pit coal mine in Porto Alegre, Brazil was stopped by a federal court Friday, thanks to a diverse campaign of marches, public education and advocacy because the indigenous population was not consulted. In the Philippines, a new ban on all new coal-fired power station projects in the province of Antique has passed due to local opposition. 100% renewables: Thousands of people across Ukraine are telling the government its plan for the energy transition doesn't go far enough. Clean seas: The Austrian oil company OMV has pulled the plug and stopped its controversial deep-sea drill off the coast of Aotearoa New Zealand. JPMorgan Chase, the world´s largest fossil fuel lender, announced a policy that rules out funding for coal plants, and for oil and gas projects in the melting Arctic. The protests did have success. However tar sand mines, one of if not the dirtiest energy source of all, can still be funded.

In Kanada wurden die Pläne zur größten, jemals geplanten Teersandmine ad acta gelegt, dank weitreichender Proteste von Bürgern. Was die größte Kohlemine Lateinamerikas im Tagbau hätte werden können, wurde in Porto Alegre, Brasilien dank eines Gerichtsurteiles letzten Freitag gestoppt. Das Gericht stellte fest, daß die indigene Bevölkerung nicht wie vorgeschrieben konsultiert worden ist. Dank Protestzügen, öffentlicher Information und Fürsprache konnte dieser Sieg errungen werden. Auf den Philppinen darf es in der Provinz Antique keine neuen Kohlekraftwerke geben, dank lokaler Proteste. 100% Erneuerbare: Tausende haben in der Ukraine ihrer Regierung gezeigt, daß ihre Pläne für den Klimaschutz nicht weitreichend genug sind. Saubere Meere: Das Österreichische Erdölunternehmen OMV hat sich aus der umstrittenen Tiefseemine Aotearoa in Neuseeland zurückgezogen. JPMorgan Chase, der weltweit größte Geldgeber für fossile Energien hat seine neue Investitionspolitik bekannt gegeben: Keine Finanzierung neuer Kohlekraftwerke und keine Öl und Gasprojekte in der auftauenden Arktis. Die Proteste haben Wirkung gezeigt. In Teersandminen, eine der dreckigsten, wenn nicht überhaupt die dreckigste Enegiequelle, darf allerdings weiterhin investiert werden.

Bugfix for xchroot: Under certain conditions directories were not unmounted correctly when leaving the chroot. A possible hang when invoking cleanup later on has also been resolved. No more spurious error message on chroot to relative directory. When already inside the directory of the chroot the directory is kept on chrooting.
