Lützerath – Thousands of demonstrators are expected near the lignite mining town of Lützerath on Saturday (12 p.m.) against the clearing of the settlement.

The police have been clearing the place since Wednesday (January 11).

According to an alliance of environmental organizations and climate policy initiatives, more than ten thousand participants are expected.

The protest march first leads through the town of Keyenberg, which, like Lützerath, belongs to the town of Erkelenz.

A final rally follows near Lützerath.

Specifically, the alliance is calling for an evacuation stop to prevent the planned excavation of the lignite under Lützerath by the energy company RWE.

Thunberg and Neubauer expected in Lützerath

The initiatives All Villages Remain, Fridays for Future and the BUND are involved in the demonstration.

The climate activists Greta Thunberg and Luisa Neubauer are also expected to take part in the protest.

Two activists are also trapped in a tunnel four meters below a ramshackle house.

The protesters call themselves "Pinky" and "Brain".

The oxygen supply is guaranteed via a hose that extends into the underground hiding place.

Since, according to Aachen police chief Dirk Weinspach, there is a risk of death, it is still unclear when the activists can be evacuated from the tunnel, which is not considered safe.

Lützerath: Activists are still blocking tunnels

According to the "Aktionsticker Lützerath" of the activists on Twitter, there is an acute "risk of the tunnel collapsing" due to the felling and clearing of tree houses by the police in Lützerath.

The already cleared tree houses, which the police let fall down, can therefore be felt in the tunnel.
