Shoot: Activists Stop Coal Import in Poland (Video)

GP0STTUK5
Masked border guards with machine guns invade the Rainbow Warrior sailing ship taking part in a peaceful protest at the coal port in Gdansk. They threaten with weapons, smash the window and go on the bridge. Greenpeace activists and activists who had previously blocked coal transport from Mozambique are detained. By their protests, climate defenders called on the Polish government to protect the climate and to move Poland away from coal by 2030.

“We would like the Polish authorities to act as quickly and decisively in the climate crisis as they do by suppressing peaceful protests. Climate defenders drew attention to the absurdities of Poland's energy policy. In the name of defending the interests of the coal lobby, our government does not protect the climate and does not invest in Polish renewable energy sources. Instead of building windmills or photovoltaic plants, we import "Polish black gold", mainly from Russia, but also from countries as distant as Australia, Colombia or Mozambique. Those who have the courage to oppose such a policy are threatened with machine guns,” said Marek Józefiak, coordinator of the Climate and Energy campaign in Greenpeace Polska.
In order for the climate crisis not to turn into a catastrophe, Poland, like other European Union countries, must leave coal by 2030, and within the next decade from other fossil fuels - gas and oil. As expert analyzes indicate, if Poland does not switch to renewable energy, coal imports to Poland will increase, weakening the country's energy security.
