Speaking at the edge of the protests in the village of Lüzerath in the Rhine region, Ms Thunberg accused the Greens of hypocrisy, saying: "They took part in the demonstrations to save Lützerath and then sacrificed Lüzerath.” Ms Thunberg told broadcaster ARD: “We can’t accept that RWE, a fossil fuel company, can do deals with the government and threaten countless lives across the world.” Ms Thunberg, 20, travelled to Germany last week to join protesters who had occupied the deserted village, which is situated at the edge of a huge open cast mine owned by energy firm RWE. 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
