Greta Thunberg joins climate activists in condemned German village

Swedish climate activist Greta Thunberg joined a group of climate activists in Luetzerath, in western Germany, as they attempt to stop the village’s demolition to make way for the construction of a coal mine. “Germany is embarrassing itself,” the 20-year-old said, urging the activists to stay strong amidst police evacuations. Germany is defending the mine construction as the government attempts to secure energy sources other than Russian gas.
