Barbara, from Keyenberg, is still facing the reality of being thrown out of her home for coal. But she’s not giving up that easily – she’ll take the problem to court if she has to.

We – Andrea, Barbara, Britta, Michael and our neighbours from the villagers threatened by the Garzweiler II mine – are fighting to keep our homes. Our campaign is called “Menschenrecht vor Bergrecht” (Human rights before mining rights). We are standing strong to save our villages from destruction and will go all the way to court if we have to.
