Germany: environmental activist Greta Thunberg arrested after a demonstration against a coal mine in Lützerath

Swedish environmental activist Greta Thunberg was arrested by police on Tuesday (January 17th) among a group of demonstrators protesting against the extension of a coal mine in the village in Lützerath, western Germany. “The group is in custody”, a police spokeswoman told AFP, adding that anti-coal activists had moved “to the edge of the mine”.

For several days, this locality has been the scene of clashes between activists and the police, around the extension site of an open-pit lignite mine, involving the disappearance of the village of Lützerath, in the Rhine basin, between Düsseldorf and Cologne. This place, which has become a symbol of opposition to fossil fuels, had attracted thousands of demonstrators on Saturday.
