Among those released is 42-year-old Solvig Schinköthe: “I'm exhausted, but also proud of the people here. What we are doing is absolutely necessary. I cannot stand by and watch as our government continues to spiral toward fossil fuel collapse. We are robbing ourselves and our children of any future. I don't want to lose hope. That's why I won't stop raising awareness of the climate emergency. For a future worth living, the fossil fuel madness MUST end!"

Lina Schinkoethe (20)

Her 20-year-old daughter Lina, who had stuck herself to the street, adds: “Instead of finally making a declaration of life and ruling out new oil drilling in the North Sea, the government is letting us citizens be arrested and taken away like criminals. Mr. Habeck has to make a decision: does he want to lock us up or finally follow the appeals of science? Plans to drill for oil in the North Sea must be stopped immediately!”
