Greenpeace backed German farmers sue government for not tackling climate change fast enough

Close

Environmental activists Greenpeace have teamed up with three families to sue the German government with the aim of forcing it to meet climate protection goals earlier than it had planned, magazine Der Spiegel reports.

The case, brought by Greenpeace on behalf of the three German families, alleges that Chancellor Angela Merkel’s government, by failing to tackle climate change with sufficient urgency, was infringing their right to life and health.
