Frankfurt, April 14.04.22, 12, 40 p.m. - Around XNUMX people from the last generation were arrested again during the blockades this morning.

He said at his arrest:
“I and my generation lived beyond our means and paid no attention to the future of our grandchildren. I have become aware that we have to stop our fossil business as usual immediately if we want to give them the chance of a world worth living in. If the government doesn't finally stop its fossil fuel madness and the destruction of the livelihoods of the generations after us, I'm prepared to go to prison for the future of my grandchildren."

After 150 arrests in the last few days, 40 last generation people were arrested again today in the blockades. Many have been arrested several times in the last few days. People consciously accept these mass arrests and the waiting in prison cells, sometimes for several days, as part of their determined protest. In some cases, people were arrested to avert danger before they even blocked roads.
