Germany: Greenpeace target Die Linke over "contradictory" mining policies

Germany, Berlin
May 26, 2014 at 19:59 GMT +00:00 · Published

About three dozen members of the environmental group Greenpeace stormed the headquarters of German political party Die Linke in Berlin Monday, unfurling a massive banner at the entrance to the party's building near Alexanderplatz and occupying portions of the interior.

The group is protesting over lignite mining in the state of Brandenburg and what they view as contradictory environmental policies of left parties like Die Linke who support Welzow-South II, a proposed lignite mining site in Brandenburg.

Four Greenpeace protesters could be seen hanging from the building's facade, while others occupied an interior courtyard. It remains unknown how long the activists plan to stay, or what actions Die Linke might take to remove them. No arrests have been made so far.
