Stroller on fire – Where is the Climate Chancellor?

Berlin, July 2, 2022, 11 a.m – Citizens of the last generation emphasized their demand this afternoon with a symbolic action in front of the Federal Chancellery. They are demanding a declaration from Chancellor Olaf Scholz in which he rules out new oil drilling in the North Sea. An empty stroller was on fire while a politician sat idly by in a sun lounger, enjoying his summer break.

Solvig Schinköthe (42), mother of three children:
"My youngest child is nine and he is growing up in a burning world. Children in particular are already dying from the climate catastrophe. And what is our federal government doing? She wants to add more fuel to the fire by drilling more in the North Sea. In doing so, it destroys our livelihoods and the future of our children."

She further said:
"We citizens demand that our government fulfill its duty. It is obliged in our Basic Law to protect our livelihoods, especially in responsibility for our children. We therefore demand that Olaf Scholz clearly rejects new oil drilling in the North Sea before the summer break!"

Leah Bonasera (24), co-founder of the Last Generation:
"Today we are already seeing the catastrophic effects of the climate emergency: droughts in northern Italy or the fires here in Brandenburg. And we only have a few years left before our climate spirals completely out of control and we head towards the destruction of our society. That's why our government must now adopt austerity measures such as a speed limit and free public transport, which would massively save fossil oil!"

After another week of highway blockades, the peaceful citizens of the last generation want to use this symbolic action to draw attention to the urgency and drama of the climate crisis. Under the motto “Climate Chancellor is missing!” they are demanding that Olaf Scholz reject new oil drilling in the North Sea before the start of the parliamentary summer break. In the last few days there have been repeated color campaigns by the Last Generation at the Federal Chancellor's Office and at the Willy Brandt House, where the words "Where is the Climate Chancellor?" were attached to the facade.
