German police evict climate activists trying to stop coalmine expansion – video report

Hundreds of climate activists barricaded themselves in a camp at an abandoned village in western Germany in an anti-coal protest. About 700 demonstrators occupying the deserted village of Lützerath in North Rhine Westphalia clashed with officers after eviction orders were issued by a local court. Environmentalists say bulldozing the village to expand the nearby Garzweiler coalmine would result in huge greenhouse gas emissions. The government and utility company RWE say the coal is needed to ensure Germany’s energy security.

          This is outrageous, coal is one of the main contributors to global warming and that the expansion of the mine will exacerbate the problem. The eviction of peaceful protestors is a violation of their freedom of speech and assembly.

              They may try to put all efforts down but persistence will win,I think there are better ways of solving crisis other than conflict

                    Really sad. May these activists remain in high spirits regardless of the difficult times. Kenya's Uhuru part was saved by the late Wangari Mathai, a woman who was a noble Laurette winner.

                        It is high time people get to be sensitised more on climate change. We only have this one home/globe to live on.

                              Germany should invest in other ways other than coal

                                  Shame on German for encouraging coal use instead of transiting to green energy...

                                    This was wrong in so many ways...the fact Germany is still using coal and other fossil fuels while the world is trying to transit from that into green energy is just saddening.. they should listen to the activist

                                      The eviction of climate activists protesting the expansion of the Garzweiler coal mine in Germany highlights the ongoing tension between the need for energy security and the urgent need to address greenhouse gas emissions to combat climate change.
