Berlin, June 06.11.2023, 08, 00:XNUMX a.m â€“ The Last Generation protests have been going on for seven weeks now, insisting on the need for a socially just phase-out of fossil fuels by 2030. Today Puschkinallee, near the S-Bahn station, is the site of the road blockade. Supporters of the last generation have sat down there in high-visibility vests and attached their hands to the road with superglue.

They also sprayed orange paint on her hands, which means that the prints of her taped hands will remain clearly visible long after the blockage is removed. 

Rolf Meyer (56), physicist and speaker of the Last Generation explains: “The government must have the courage to pull the ripcord now. It is inevitable that Germany will quickly phase out fossil fuels by 2030. If this doesn't happen, we will all end up in an almost dystopian reality."

If the world's governments fail to meet the CO₂ reductions required by international law, by 2100 a third of humanity will live in areas where conditions are hostile to life. This is the conclusion reached by a study by a British research team this year.[1] Areas around the equator are particularly affected, where the temperature and humidity will be life-threateningly high. Extreme weather events, such as floods, storms and drought, are already responsible for three times as many displacements of people from their habitats as conflict and violence. [2]
