DAccording to their own statements, the climate activists of the “Last Generation” group will not be taking part in any more protest actions in Berlin and Munich until the end of next week. As the group announced on Friday evening, they are hoping for action in the last week of the Bundestag session in the current year. At the same time, she warned against restarting the protests with more clout.
The time will be used to “properly train and involve the many people who are currently joining the movement in order to come back with even more people”. The federal government can still act in the fight against climate change. “It’s not a question of ability, but of will, and we can only sincerely hope that she still lives up to her responsibility,” the statement said.
The climate activists of the “last generation” were heavily criticized on Thursday and Friday after some of them paralyzed flight operations at the capital’s BER airport. The activists climbed through the security fence and went onto the airport grounds. Numerous politicians called for consequences, including the expansion of preventive custody in the Federal Police Act.
“I think we all – society and politics – could use a breather to calm the heated spirits a little,” spokeswoman Aimée van Baalen was quoted as saying.
