Following the teenage climate activist Greta Thunberg visiting Polish coal mines in Silesia to conduct secret interviews with miners, the spokesman of Sierpień 80, a miners’ trade union, accused miners who spoke to Thunberg of treason.

Thunberg recently visited Poland accompanied by a BBC television crew, with Remix News unofficially learning that BBC is making a documentary on the phenomenon of Thunberg and a Polish tour will be an important part of the film.

She visited the Bełchatów Power Station, the world’s largest lignite-fired power station, and later the Makoszowy and Guido coal mines in Silesia.

Jerzy Hubka, a miner, posted on Facebook that miners had indeed met with Thunberg and took the activist along with the BBC camera crew to film the Guido mine and also to show Greta how the bottom of a mine looks like.

Patryk Kosela, Polish miner, Sierpień ’80 trade union:

Hubka humiliated himself just so Greta Thunberg could say in Davos that she had spoken with Polish miners and ‘even they haven’t surrendered’. Ms. Greta, Polish miners will NEVER surrender. Never! But Jerzy Hubka did not tell you that because he’s a fool who shits in his own nest.

Thunberg began her rocket to world fame starting in August 2018, when she held a protest in front of the Swedish Parliament. She said that her protests were being held against climate change, which she said were derived from human actions. She also refused to attend school until world leaders took action against climate change.

The seemingly minor act turned into a major movement, catalyzing youth from all around the world to follow in Thunberg’s footsteps.
