Protestors wearing hazard suits took over an open-pit coal mine near Bonn, Germany yesterday (November 5), over climate change and the use of fossil fuels.
Those taking part were calling for coal to no longer be used as a power source, before global climate change talks started today (November 6) in Germany, according to Yahoo.
Around 200 people attended the protest which went on for several hours, however police did circle around those involved.
Banners they held included the phrases "Burn borders, not coal," "Welcome to COP23" and "Climate Justice."
Protestors included Pacific islanders where rising seas and more storms have already affected their homeland.
Zane Sikulu from Tonga said: "If we don’t shut the mines down, we have no chance. We’re here to protect our land, our culture and our identities as Pacific people."
COP23 started today (November 6) in Bonn and will run for the next two weeks where 195 nations will discuss climate change.
Donald Trump has already claimed he wants to remove America from the Paris climate deal, Reuters said.
