Coal protests: environmental activists force works to fill in Berlin and Mannheim

climate activists have occupied early Saturday morning in Berlin and Mannheim, two power plants, in order to demonstrate for a more rapid Coal phase-out. In Berlin-Moabit, several people were on the towers of the power plant, such as a dpa Reporter on Saturday reported tomorrow. They unrolled a banner with the inscription "Whoever gives us, is for coal!". Around 20 people had entered the grounds, said a police spokesman.

With their action, the activists are calling for, among other things, "an end to the fossil capitalism", such as the action group "Direct action Berlin" announced. Built in 1900, Heizkraftwerk Moabit coal and, since 2013, the biomass is burned. The operator of the power plant at the Friedrich-Krause-Ufer, the Swedish energy group Vattenfall is.

In Mannheim gained five to six people with access to the site of the coal-fired power plant. According to the police, the activists climbed to the roof of a coal conveyor system. The conveyor belt of the power plant unit had been stopped.

the activists had criticised the operation of the power plant and the known large-scale power plant as a "climate killer". A year ago, about 100 people were entered in the Area of the power plant. At that time, they blocked the entrance and a conveyor belt.
