DThe climate adhesive and their large following will see themselves confirmed once again: Now the state is already striking as against Reich citizens. The Bavarian Central Office for Combating Extremism and Terrorism at the Munich Public Prosecutor’s Office is in charge of the searches in several federal states. One of the reasons: At least 1.4 million euros in donations are said to have been collected – in order to commit further crimes.
In view of the professional approach of the last generation, the suspicion of a criminal organization was never far away. All communicative paths and procedural possibilities were and are open to them – but they chose the wrong path. If the rule of law does not respond, it sends a fatal signal.
Anyone who says in all seriousness that this is the only way to make progress should think this through to the end. Anyone who constructs a duty of civil disobedience for everyone in a functioning constitutional state is basically proclaiming anarchy. Because the accusation made by the climate stickers that the federal government is violating the constitution is also being raised by other groups.
In addition, unlike the extensive earlier protests against nuclear storage facilities or barracks, which were also accompanied by violence, the climate stickers indiscriminately coerced thousands of fellow citizens. So they don’t get any understanding, but shaking their heads, exercising the right of self-defence up to and including violence, which, however, is just as unacceptable.
The prosecution required, which has now reached a new threshold, should make everyone stop. It is not about a blanket criminalization of protests against climate policy, but about enforcing the law. You have to be able to agree on that. Because hopefully that’s what it’s all about: a peaceful struggle for better politics. Or is it only about violent actions as such? Anyone who sees this as their club purpose is forbidden.
