Protest in The Hague

– climate catastrophe
don’t stop at national borders –

The Hague, Berlin, September 30.9.2023, 13, 30:XNUMX p.m p.m. - Almost 100 supporters of the Last Generation joined the protests on the A12 in The Hague that have been taking place for three weeks today from around 15:12 p.m. Extinction Rebellion Netherlands is calling for daily protests on the highway in front of the Dutch Parliament and demanding an immediate end to fossil fuel subsidies.

On the A12 in The Hague, the Last Generation supporters are wearing bright orange safety vests and some have stuck their hands to the road. The Dutch police are currently clearing Last Generation supporters from the streets in The Hague and putting them on buses.

Rolf Meyer, speaker of the Last Generation, is on site in The Hague and explains: “The governments of the world continue to pour fuel on the fire, even though it has long been obvious that we no longer have the flames under control. With every ton of CO2 we emit, the risk of the climate system collapsing increases. The resulting disasters do not stop at national borders. It is now up to all of us to take responsibility and make full use of our opportunities for protest and peaceful resistance – even across borders.” 

In Berlin this Saturday, supporters of the last generation are again gathering for a protest march on the streets of Berlin. Wearing bright orange safety vests, they slowly walk through the capital from around 13:30 p.m. from the Neptune Fountain.

Last Generation spokeswoman explains the Citizens' Council set up yesterday on the topic of “Nutrition in transition”. Lea Maria Rhein: “When droughts and flash floods destroy our crops, when we are faced with empty supermarket shelves, even the smartest nutritional concept is of no use to us. Rethinking nutrition and agriculture is not enough. We now need an overall concept, a socially just exit plan from fossil fuels, which the government is obviously still failing to develop. The question we have to ask ourselves is: How do we phase out oil, gas and coal by 2030 at the latest?
