The activist Greta Thunberg was taken away by the German police during a demonstration Lützerath. Thunberg was then released in the evening. And today he wanted to comment on the arrest on Twitter: “Yesterday I joined a group that was peacefully protesting against the expansion of a coal mine Germany. We were arrested and later released. Climate protection is not a crime.” Thunberg was arrested while taking part in a sit-in at the mine Garzweiler 2 approx. 9 km from Lützerath. The Swedish activist arrived on Friday. She had already been removed by the police on Sunday for security reasons. The village in the German federal state North Rhine-Westphalia has recently become a symbol of mobilization against the fossil fuels and local activists have garnered sympathy from environmentalists across Europe.
