Frankfurt, December 11.04.22st, XNUMX - Early in the morning, Last Generation supporters blocked the A684 motorway and brought traffic to a standstill around Frankfurt am Main - only emergency vehicles were allowed through. The Last Generation is directly addressing the financial center against the unbridled financing of new infrastructure for oil, coal and gas at home and abroad with German money. Exiting existing fossil fuels is difficult enough. Nobody needs new oil from the Arctic or fossil gas from Qatar.
The campaign calls for a “Stop the fossil fuel madness” and thus refers to the federal government’s previous investments in new, additional fossil gas and oil projects. Mistakes like Nordstream I and II are now funding Putin's brutal war of aggression. What are the consequences of this?
Terminals for fracking and liquid gas from Qatar and America are now to be built with millions on the North Sea. This is fossil madness. Olaf Scholz and the federal government want to create facts that will last for decades instead of putting the money sensibly into renewable energies. They thus finance unjust regimes and betray the German population in the climate emergency.
Fatih Birol, Executive Director of the IEA, leading energy economist:
In the fossil madness we remain hostage to bloody dictators like Putin and have to watch as we support the most cruel murders of civilians with over 600 million euros every day. Money for new tanks whose tracks are crushing women and children in Ukraine. The lie continues that there is “no alternative” to this, even though it is unmistakably clear to everyone that every additional euro spent on the construction of pipelines and terminals will be offset by the subsequent blood of the victims of war, drought and climate destruction.
Carla Hinrichs, 25, speaker of the Last Generation:
"Anyone who accepts fossil fuel madness without standing up to it is cooperating with it. Everyone must now choose a side."
Every Thursday & Sunday on Zoom – we look forward to seeing you!
