Desolation row

On 25 April, 6,000 people formed a four-and-a-half-mile-long human chain in Germany’s Rheinland as part of the region’s largest-ever anti-coal protest.

The demonstration along the Garzweiler II open-cast mine called for cuts in open-cast mining, an end to coal-related displacement of communities, and the closure of Germany’s dirtiest and oldest lignite coal-fired power plants.
