Climate activist Greta Thunberg was arrested in Germany on Tuesday for storming a coal mine. Or was she? Police said that she was amongst a group of activists that “stormed” the perimeter of the mine that authorities called “steep and extremely dangerous.” The mainstream media showed videos of Greta being carried away while other behind-the-scenes videos emerged where she was seen taking photos and posing with police (above). Was it all staged? You be the judge.
What’s the message?
Thunberg was protesting a new coal plant that Germany is building in order to decrease its dependence on Russian gas. Meanwhile, Germany has also shut down most of its nuclear plants which Thunberg says (and we agree) is the cleaner alternative to coal.
Police said that they did know that she was famous when they arrested her. Again, you be the judge.
