Images of climate activist Greta Thunberg's supposed arrest by German police circulated widely after the incident on Tuesday, causing some people to admire her supposed bravery in the face of state power.
Further examination of the incident and raw footage has revealed that the 20-year-old Swedish activist, much like her actor father, has a talent for theatricality. It is reported that Thunberg's supposed arrest was staged and it was not an arrest in the true sense of the word.
On Tuesday, climate activists gathered in a western German village that was marked for demolition for an anti-labor demonstration, condemning the expansion of a coal mine that creates jobs.
Due to domestic anti-oil policies and inadequate reliance on renewable energy sources, Europe became overly dependent on Russian energy. When Russia reduced the energy supply to the continent during its war on Ukraine, countries like Germany, which previously obtained around 30% of its energy from Russia, were compelled to revert to using coal.
While the advocacy of climate change played a role in Germany's pressing need for coal, Thunberg and other activists still spoke out against the demolition of the abandoned village of Luetzerath, which is necessary for the expansion of the Garzweiler 2 mine.
Despite being condemned and owned by the mine, Luetzerath has recently turned into a squat for ecosocialist and leftist militants, as well as climate extremists.
In this footage, Leftist extremists from the condemned village can be observed attacking journalists:

Climate activist Mike Hudema tweeted with a similar sense of urgency, "Greta Thunberg has been detained in Germany for protesting the expansion of a coal mine despite the government claiming it will exit coal by 2030. The coal expansion betrays 'present and future generations.' There is no time to wait."

A video has surfaced that shows Thunberg laughing with the people who were supposed to be her captors.
The footage depicts Thunberg and her police escorts striking various poses for the photographers and videographers around them, and laughing at times.
After the photo opportunity, the police escorted the Swedish trespasser off the private property.

They were not in the locker room as expected, but rather at the team's hotel. In response, a team manager had to quickly return to the hotel to retrieve the uniforms.
