Demonstration: opponents of coal continue protest actions on excavators

After the eviction of Lützerath, opponents of coal continued their protests in several places in North Rhine-Westphalia on Tuesday morning. A bucket-wheel excavator was manned in the Inden open-cast lignite mine and had to stop working as a result. The Aachen police spoke of around 20 activists involved, a spokesman for the energy company RWE of 30 to 40.

According to police and RWE information, a group of around 50 activists also occupied factory railway tracks to the Neurath power plant near Rommerskirchen. After they refused to leave the tracks, the protesters were carried away, a spokesman for the Aachen police reported. The "action ticker Lützerath" reported about 130 blockers on the coal railway at the Neurath power plant. Violent clashes were initially not known at any protest location.

"There is no coal train here today. We are standing in the way of destruction with our bodies," tweeted the "Ende Gelände" alliance above a photo of activists in white full-body suits on the railway tracks. "Climate protection remains manual work!"

The police forces prepared themselves for several spontaneous, decentralized actions. The action alliance "Lützerath Unräumbar", which also includes groups from Fridays For Future and Last Generation, had previously called for a joint day of action on Tuesday.
