Berlin, June 21.10.2022, 16, 30:XNUMX a.m – Supporters of the last generation are currently bringing traffic to a standstill at the main train station and other places in Berlin. They criticize the fact that even the federal government's inadequate climate targets are not being implemented and that we are instead being led further into the abyss of climate catastrophe.
Participates in the traffic blockade at Berlin Central Station Lisa Winkelmann, 20: “I am very afraid that if our government continues like this, our livelihoods will go down the drain and we will face droughts, heat waves, species extinctions and floods on an as yet unknown scale. Now the catastrophe can be somewhat stopped. The government must enable people to switch as a first precautionary measure. From uncontrolled speed on motorways to affordable public transport."
There are also disruptions in other places. Citizens of the last generation climbed onto sign gantries over the Berlin city highway and clung to the support system. Bloody hand injuries have occurred more frequently in the last two weeks. Most recently yesterday, when a citizen of the last generation had his taped hand torn from the street by a police chief on the street in front of the Frankfurter Gate, which then had to be treated medically. In addition to injuries and attacks on pain-sensitive parts of the body, we see many police officers who act very carefully and get people off the street with skateboards.
The Speaker of the Last Generation, Aimee van Baalen, 23, is determined: “Everyone knows that the government's climate goals are lax and that it is still failing even at these goals. It is a farce if even the simplest necessary safety measures are not taken, such as a speed limit of 100 km/h on German motorways. Our protest will continue in the next few weeks and will become even broader and more diverse."
Jacob Beyer, 29, Last Generation speaker states: “A speed limit of 100 km/h on motorways would Save 5,7 million tons of CO2. We want simple, affordable mobility for everyone and cities that are designed for coexistence instead of just for industry and car traffic."
Scientists in the group also emphasize the need for initial safety measures in times of energy and cost crisis through a speed limit on motorways and affordable public transport (€9 ticket). Scientists' Rebellion. They protested at the World Health Summit last week and occupied the Federal Ministry of Transport in Berlin in the past few days stuck in the Porsche pavilion in the Autostadt Wolfsburg for over 24 hours. The researchers criticized Volkswagen for its contribution to an escalation of the climate crisis and called on the company not to further delay urgent climate protection measures.
