“Keep It in the Ground”: As COP23 Ends, Activists Protest at Europe’s Largest Open-Pit Coal Mine

Throughout the United Nations climate summit in Bonn, Germany, activists have been protesting against fossil fuels. Early this morning, Democracy Now! drove about 45 minutes west of Bonn to the forests of western Germany, where activists unfurled a banner at the largest open-pit coal mine in Europe that read, “It’s Up to Us to Keep It in the Ground.” “You can’t separate the peace movement from the climate movement,” says Lea Heuser, winner of Germany’s Aachen Peace Prize.
