Covered in glue – “We would rather sink in glue than in flood disasters!”

Munich, September 14.12.2022, 10, 15:XNUMX a.m – In downtown Munich (on Von-der-Tann-Straße) two supporters of the last generation were standing next to a UHU barrel today Glue showered. They wore wetsuits and held a banner announcing an as-yet-unpublicized event next week: “What’s going to happen on Tuesday?”

The plot shows the absurdity of the charges raised by the Bavarian capital on December 09.12.2022th, XNUMX preventive general decree against sticky gatherings. This prohibits any protest in which climate activists fix themselves on the street.

The people of the last generation are not deterred by bans and prison sentences - nine supporters are still in preventive detention in Bavarian prisons.

“The adhesive ban doesn’t change anything. We will continue to stick ourselves on Munich's streets as often and with as much glue as necessary. Banning a democratic form of protest simply shows the government's inability to adequately respond to the impending climate hell and to comply with our simple, vital safety measures. The resistance will continue. You can’t ban people who want to protect the constitution.”, says Last Generation speaker Jacob Beyer clear.

Antonia Vollbrecht, who was bathing in Kleber today near the Prinz-Carl-Palais, explains: “We take to the streets every day for the survival of our children. It is absurd to think that we could be prevented from this vital project by simply banning it. It's five to twelve - we can't wait until the dikes break. I would rather sink in glue now than in impending flood disasters.”

In July 2021, thousands of people lost their entire existence due to the floods in the Ahr Valley - and more than 130 of them also lost their lives. According to scientists The impending climate collapse is partly to blame for the flood disaster. Extreme weather events such as flash floods and record rainfall are the inevitable consequence of the federal government's irresponsible policies.  

A few hours earlier, motorway exits were peacefully blocked in four places in Berlin. The demands for initial security measures against the impending climate collapse remain unchanged: the return of the 4 euro ticket and a speed limit of 9 km/h on all German motorways.

Speaker of the Last Generation Aimee van Baalen wonders: “When will someone finally stop the federal government from actively fueling the climate catastrophe? When will someone stop huge corporations from destroying our livelihoods? We continue to forbid our obedience in a system that is killing us! What will you do?"
