Climbed the Brandenburg Gate - On the day the Berlin Wall fell, the last generation called for solidarity

November 09.11.2022th, XNUMX - Two sisters of the last generation address the federal government with their banners and call for solidarity in the face of the climate catastrophe.

Berlin, October 09.11.2022, 8, 00:XNUMX a.m – Today on "On the Day of Cohesion, two citizens from the last generations climbed the Brandenburg Gate.
A huge banner they hoisted on the symbol of peace and unity read: “We wish for survival for everyone - On the day of cohesion - We are all the last generation". 

Maya Winkelmann, who stands on the Brandenburg Gate with her sister, explains her motives: “On the day of cohesion, we as a society are on the brink. We must now decide: Do we want to survive together or die alone? I think I can expect my government to ensure survival for everyone. She should negotiate with us tomorrow at 10:00 a.m.!”

This tension, which has been running through the population for a long time, has only recently been ignited by the protests of many climate activists. While individuals want to see prison sentences, broad spectrums of society demand Fridays for Future up to Young liberals the release of people who should remain locked up for 30 days because of their commitment to all of our livelihoods.

Lisa Winkelmann therefore appeals directly to the federal government: “We call on the traffic light government to take a step towards social reconciliation! Come to us tomorrow and negotiate with us about the first security measures against the impending climate collapse. Then we can end our protests! Let’s come together and speak plainly!”

As has been published several times since last Friday, the last generation invites the federal government, ie Olaf Scholz, Christian Lindner, Robert Habeck and in particular Federal Transport Minister Volker Wissing, tomorrow Thursday, 10th November 2022 at 10:00 a.m. in Berlin for a conversation. A representative team will be available on this day.

Lea Bonasera, Marlon Profuß and Claudia Röseler would like to negotiate the first safety measures in the disaster - 100km/h on the motorway and a €9 ticket on local transport - and the associated end to the protests. 
Until a solution is found, we see no morally justifiable position other than continuing to resist on the streets.
