Watch: Greta Thunberg carried away by police in Germany during protest at open coal pit mine

Thunberg was among hundreds of protestors in the western German state of North Rhine-Westphalia, opposing the destruction of a village for expansion of the mine.

Swedish activist Greta Thunberg was carried away by police while protesting in Germany at the edge of an open coal pit mine on 17 January 2023.

Thunberg was among hundreds of protestors in the western German state of North Rhine-Westphalia, opposing the destruction of a village for expansion of the mine.

In the city of Cologne, climate activists glued themselves to a main street, while in Dusseldorf, they stuck themselves to a government building. Near Rommerskirchen, over a hundred protestors occupied coal railroad tracks.

In addition, several people occupied a giant digger at the coal mine of Inden, while hundreds of other protesters joined a protest march near Luetzerath. The village itself was evacuated by the police in recent days and is sealed off.

Thunberg had traveled to western Germany to participate in weekend demonstrations against the expanded mine and also took part in Tuesday's protest near Luetzerath. Police in nearby Aachen said a group of around 50 protesters got dangerously close to the rim of the mine and did not want to leave despite being asked to do so.
