NRW Interior Minister Reul warns Greta Thunberg to de-escalate

Before the large-scale demonstration near Lützerath planned for Saturday, North Rhine-Westphalia’s Interior Minister Herbert Reul (CDU) called on the Swedish climate activist Greta Thunberg, who was expected there, to de-escalate.

“In NRW, everyone is allowed to demonstrate, including Ms. Thunberg, who is traveling from afar,” Reul told the “Bild” newspaper, according to a statement on Friday. “I hope she makes sure her fellow campaigners stay peaceful and stick to the rules.”

The Swedish activist had announced her visit near Lützerath on Saturday in the short message service Twitter in order to defend the former village against the threat of excavation of the coal underneath. After the evacuation of the settlement against the resistance of activists had already begun on Wednesday, the police continued their action on Friday.
