Thirteen Greenpeace activists were escorted to the Kozani police station late on Wednesday, after spending 14 hours protesting on top of the cooling tower at the country’s largest coal-fired power station in Ptolemaida, northern Greece. The activists were protesting Greece’s failure to adopt cleaner energy practices.

The Greenpeace members were expected to face a prosecutor later in the day on charges of disturbing the peace and causing damage to property.
