17 supporters of the last generation remain in Munich prison cells
Berlin, November 11.11.2022, 8, 05:XNUMX a.m. - Today, dozens of people came together in the heart of Berlin to resolutely oppose the federal government's deadly course. They are peacefully blocking traffic at the Frankfurter Tor because they can no longer silently accept the political failure in the climate catastrophe. Today they are supported by the Lebenslaute orchestra, which also blocks a street at the Frankfurter Tor and plays classical music.
Antonia Vollbrecht is an agricultural journeyman. She explains: "I'm sitting here on the street because I can't help it. Because it feels completely unreal to carry on like it's nothing knowing what's going on. Because I can't stand the fact that even with a clear view of the abyss, we don't finally pull the handbrake and instead my generation has to listen to us, we should just have a little optimism. "
Here she alludes to statements which were made yesterday in the talk format “Markus Lanz”.. There was talk of a lack of optimism and that people could easily adapt to the climate catastrophe.
Such words show that the true extent of the catastrophe has not yet reached everyone's minds.
The renowned German Climate researcher Stefan Rahmstorf reacts to this on Twitter and paints a clear picture: “A world four degrees warmer would be full of disasters, famine and suffering. Ecosystems would collapse. No longer a stable coastline, cities are sinking."
A world 4 degrees warmer would be full of disasters, famine and suffering. Ecosystems would no longer be adapted to the climate and would collapse. No longer a stable coastline, cities are sinking. But please be optimistic & adapt. #Lanz https://t.co/gBwDhBvaPz— Prof. Stefan Rahmstorf 🌏🇺🇦 (@rahmstorf) November 10, 2022
If the world's governments continue to fall short of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change's recommendations and then miss these goals, then that will be exactly the reality. People cannot adapt to famine and a lack of drinking water on the one hand, and flooded and destroyed cities on the other. We die in such conditions.
Optimism does not mean ignoring the facts. Optimism means doing everything we can to make the most of the last chance we have left.
Jacob Beyer, Speaker of the Last Generation, was willing to go to prison for it. Together with 17 other people, he is currently locked up in the Stadelheim prison for 30 days. An emotional video statement was published on social networks in the past few days:
"I want to put everything I have into it now to preserve the chance we still have. I no longer want to take part in the destruction of all of our livelihoods and that is why I am resisting. And if I have to go to prison for it, then I'm ready for it. If you want to support me, take my place on the street now. "
