Clashes erupt between police and environmental activists in western Germany

In the village of Lützerath, located in the west of Germany, clashes between eco-activists and law enforcement officers have resumed.

The reason for the protests of eco-activists was the decision of the local authorities, according to the inhabitants of the settlement are obliged to vacate their homes and allow the energy company RWE to dismantle the buildings and start coal mining.



The German authorities relocated local residents to other places, but the vacant buildings were occupied by environmental activists protesting against the expansion of the Garzweiler coal mine.

The police arrived in Lutzerat clashed with eco-activists who arbitrarily settled in the houses abandoned by the residents. Protesters erected barricades and bombard law enforcement officers with smoke bombs and firecrackers.

To expand the quarry, the village must be demolished, which is what caused the protests of eco-activists. Authorities relocated local residents before the demolition, but activists who oppose the development of the mine moved into the houses. Some eco-activists are reported to be sticking themselves to the road leading to the village, as well as to position themselves on structures adjacent to it.

About 600-800 environmental activists take part in clashes with the German police, and, according to a number of media reports, Greta Thunberg, who became famous after her emotional speech from the UN rostrum, may come to the protesters.

Energy company officials say the expansion of the coal pit has become necessary to ensure the supply of fuel to power plants during the winter energy crisis in the European Union. Earlier in Germany, a decision was made to completely abandon coal energy, but times have changed ...

      Come on, if she still has some desire for greenery, then this has nothing to do with nature, the Eco environment.

      These are clearly Soros activists whose only goal is not to preserve the ecology of Germany, but to eliminate the industry of the FRG and purchase all energy resources for the FRG from the United States.

        This is a new struggle for power in Germany, has nothing to do with ecology. I remember the "green Germanys" were against the supply of weapons to anyone in general, for green energy, and now the first ones stand for the opening of a coal mine!

        Yes do not care sorosyat not sorosyat. Why are there still no people with specific "eco" tattoos and javelins with nlavs? Why all provocations exclusively against us? And we do not succumb to provocations, we draw red lines. Why shouldn't we provoke anyone?

    Well, Germany first switches to coal and then begins to collect brushwood in the forests. Just a pastoral with a red riding hood Cinderella and that's all .. And evil Turkish migrants in the role of gray wolves (this is politically close to them). Commercials not far from the wars with France over the Ruhr coal basin ...

      What about the meaning? Then they will poison for Russian gas. They overlaid the Germans, and even launched a liver sausage with a green fool to boot. Then the money will be squeezed out "for the Poles", who will give logs for mattress weapons. Mattresses are still creatures, but the ability to be mean causes condemnation mixed with admiration.

      According to Scholz, gas is politically DIRTY, plunges users into dependence on terrible Russia. It is better to fill the atmosphere with brown coal .... t.

    . To expand the quarry, the village must be demolished, which was the reason for the protests

    An interesting movie, (moreover, online) how the Americans simply mock Europe.

      Can you imagine what mine workings are? This is not just dust and dirt from developments, these are underground workings and soil subsidence for centuries, there will be no houses there.

        As far as I understand, brown coal is supposed to be mined in a quarry way.

    The State Department and the CIA decided to roll Germany into asphalt. The time has come for the EU to order a shroud and buy a plot in the cemetery. Do not forget to accept Ukraine into the EU, but hurry up. laughing

      This is the same Greenpeace - an organization serving the interests of American corporations. And American big business (corporations), with the help of the US government, simply destroy competitors all over the planet. And those enterprises that still exist or belong to them, or are still out of reach.

      We know what. Exclusively LNG with the most democratic molecules of freedom. And very expensive.

    Declared himself an eco-activist, be kind enough to dump in the forest. Do not burn fires, do not break branches, do not touch animals. And then you just took the fashion, poking around on the topic of ecology, and then going to warm houses, eating sausage under a blanket.

    Let them turn to Kazakhstan or Mongolia. They have surplus dung. They can supply it as fuel to Germany.

    Are European eco-pofigists fighting eco-activists? Wonderful! More democracy, more!
    All this "fight for the environment" is just a hypocritical attempt by "white people" to create more favorable and comfortable conditions for themselves at the expense of others. The higher the technology, the more complex and dirty processes are needed for its implementation and disposal, which is why the United States and Europe tried to take these dirty technologies away from themselves, and they themselves had to tie up finance, research and development. It didn't grow. winked

    That's Germany for you. need coal get out of the houses. And people don't really have rights there. Disperse with sticks and even put in jail. And all because there will be no gas from Russia. Although the issue with the purchase of coal could be resolved, Germany is apparently in debt, those who actually use it pay for coal, especially in euros, and you could buy coal for euros, due to the conflict with Russia only in Africa
