For the second time this week, the party headquarters of the North Rhine-Westphalian Greens became the target of climate protectors. Around 30 activists from several climate protection organizations occupied the Düsseldorf office of the NRW Greens in protest against the position of the Greens on clearing the village of Lützerath.

A party spokesman has confirmed the action. “We are calling for a moratorium to stop the senseless and dangerous clearance in the Rhenish lignite mining area,” said the “Bündnis Lützerath Unräumbar” in a statement. The squatters demanded to negotiate personally with NRW energy minister Mona Neubaur (Greens).

On Tuesday, a Düsseldorf alliance had already unloaded 250 kilos of lignite briquettes in front of the state party headquarters of the Greens. This was intended to symbolically reproach the eco-party “that they are no longer the party of climate protection, but the coal party”.
