Video: Opponents of coal continue to mobilize

STORY: The Swedish environmental activist Greta Thunberg was there on Tuesday morning when a demonstration march with several hundred demonstrators started in the brown coal village of Keyenberg. According to the police, the group was heading towards the cleared town of Lützerath at the Garzweiler opencast mine. After the eviction of Lützerath, opponents of coal continued their protests in several places in North Rhine-Westphalia. The action alliance “Lützerath unclearable” called for the demo, which started in Keyenberg. The alliance had proclaimed January 17 as the first central day of action. At about the same time, several climate activists blocked tracks near the RWE plant near Lützerath and thus the access routes to the Neurath coal-fired power plant. The police were on site in large numbers.
