The Swedish activist joined the Garzweiler 2 open-pit mining protest last Friday.

On January 15, the police reported that they had ended the clearing operation in the town of Lützerath to increase mining operations after strong opposition from environmentalists.

After emptying all buildings last Friday, police released the beginning of the eviction of 35 tree structures next to 30 wooden structures built by the activists last Wednesday.

On Saturday, a broad alliance of organizations against lignite mining and the demolition of Lützerath organized a march in which the Swedish activist also took part.

Müller defended the action of the security forces, arguing that if there were protesters yesterday who bypassed the police barriers and, despite repeated calls, did not fail to embarrass the officers, “it has nothing to do with a peaceful protest, but with deliberate and deliberately seek confrontation with the police”.

More than 70 police officers were injured and nine activists were taken to hospital since the operation began, the statement said, although no serious injuries were reported.

About thirty police vehicles were damaged and 32 tires of security forces cars were also punctured.

Since the start of the eviction, 154 criminal investigations have been launched.
