Prostesters in Ger­many de­mand quick exit from coal

The Fresno Bee (Sunday) - - News -

Thou­sands are march­ing in Ber­lin to de­mand that Ger­many make a quick exit from us­ing coal-fired en­ergy, a day be­fore a U.N. cli­mate sum­mit opens in neigh­bor­ing Poland.

Satur­day’s march through Ber­lin’s gov­ern­ment district and a si­mul­ta­ne­ous event in the west­ern city of Cologne were or­ga­nized by en­vi­ron­men­tal groups. Many demon­stra­tors car­ried flags with slo­gans like “Stop Coal!” and “The fu­ture is coal-free.”

The sum­mit open­ing Sun­day in Ka­tow­ice, Poland, seeks to build on the 2015 Paris ac­cord.
