Climate activists are currently occupying the village of Lützerath in Germany.

Protests, occupied excavators, street barricades on country roads – the situation in Lützerath in North Rhine-Westphalia is becoming increasingly tense. The village in the Rhenish lignite mining area, occupied by climate protectors, is about to be evicted due to a residence ban. Police forces have been on duty since the beginning of the week to support the work of the energy supply group RWE, which now fully owns the place.

According to climate activists, around 300 people are currently in Lützerath to block construction work by RWE. Since the beginning of the week, the police have been preparing to evacuate the village. Activists also erected barricades and fireworks and stones were thrown at emergency services.
