Climate activist Greta Thunberg and thousands of demonstrators marched in Germany against the demolition of a village

to make way for a coal mine described as “one of the biggest carbon bombs in Europe”.  Climate activists march in Luetzerath against a plan to tear down the village to build a coal mine extension.

Crowds of activists demonstrated on Saturday in the western hamlet of Luetzerath, waving banners and chanting as a bass band accompanied them.

Luetzerath, deserted for some time by its original inhabitants, is set to disappear to make way for an extension of the adjacent open-cast coal mine, one of the largest in Europe.

Environmentalists say bulldozing the village to expand the Garzweiler mine would result in huge amounts of greenhouse gas emissions.

The Swedish climate activist Thunberg, 20, marched at the front of the procession as demonstrators converged on the village,

showing support for activists occupying it in protest over the coal mine extension. Some fought with police who were trying to move the march away from Luetzerath, which is surrounded by fences.
