Join our support for the petition to protect drinking water access at the Czech/Polish/German border

Thirty thousand people in the Czech Republic’s Liberec region face a loss of access to drinking water due to the planned expansion of the Turów coal mine. This mine is planned to newly stretch outwards to just 150 meters from the Czech border and downwards to a depth below the bottom of the Baltic. The resulting drainage of Czech underground water is not just a threat to citizens; the drying out of the area would destroy entire local ecosystems and cause significant agricultural damage. A further increase to dust and noise levels is a threat as well.

The Turów brown coal mine is polluting the atmosphere. Watch this video showing the spread of its toxins

The Turów brown coal (lignite) mine near Poland’s border with Germany and the Czech Republic is filling the atmosphere with dangerous toxins. In fact, the region’s air pollution is so strong that a rise in premature deaths has been predicted. Greenpeace published a video showing the path taken by the pollution cloud from Turów during May and June of 2018.
