North Rhine-Westphalia: "Lützi stays!" - Protest against plans for the opencast mine

Aachen (dpa / lnw) - In Aachen, around a hundred people protested in the city center on Wednesday against the planned end of the town of Lützerath at the Garzweiler opencast lignite mine. A resident of the place populated by climate protectors said it could not be that in 2022 a village would be dredged for the "dirty lignite". The Greens campaigned in Lützerath, "now they've betrayed us."

NRW Economics Minister Mona Neubaur and Federal Economics Minister Robert Habeck (both Green) and RWE boss Markus Krebber presented an agreement on Tuesday that provides for RWE's early exit from coal in 2030, which ensures the preservation of several villages in the Rhenish Revier, but at the same time that excavation from Lützerath.

Members of the Green Youth Aachen criticized the ministers of their party. "Not all green politics is Mona Neubaur," exclaimed one member. The youth organization of the party had organized the demonstration. "If Lützerath is actually evacuated, we will be there," promised a speaker. The participants of the rally shouted: "Lützi stays, Lützi stays!".
