Theodor Schnarr Wikipedia, Wiki, Lenenslauf Generation – On Friday, April 28, climate activists protested in Berlin for the tenth day in a row, closing down major thoroughfares during rush hour and paralysing parts of the city.
Provocative climate protests continue for a tenth day in the German capital.
Last Generation members stayed glued to the road, resulting in lengthy traffic backups for commuters heading into the city. The organisation seeks to raise awareness of the danger posed by global warming and the necessity for governments to take stronger action to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
While some motorists screamed insults at the activists, calling them “terrorists” and “scum,” others quietly waited for police to clear the road at a crossing in the north of the capital. One bystander brought the demonstrators food and water while other pedestrians cheered and gave them the thumbs up.
Although Last Generation acknowledges that its demonstrations are provocative, it maintains that by creating a commotion, it may foster social discussion about climate change.
Yes, there are people who make fun of or criticise us, stated campaigner Theodor Schnarr. But I sense that more and more people are approaching us on the streets and expressing their support for this.
According to Schnarr, the group thinks disruptive but nonviolent demonstrations are appropriate given the severity of the climate issue and the pressing need to address it.
“We have all of the answers. Simply put, the German government needs to put them into action,” he stated. Frank Silzle, a driver who was inconvenienced by the roadblock on Friday, claimed that while he supported the group’s goals, he disagreed with its methods.
In the end, Silzle believed that what they were doing was counterproductive. I totally agree with their cause, but the approach they’re using is tragically leading to a backlash among the public that is extremely detrimental to the cause.
Stronger police actions and punishments against the activists have been demanded by several German lawmakers. Most courts have so far either spared activists’ lives or fined them, while three members of the Last Generation recently received prison sentences in southern Germany that ranged from three to five months.
Next week, the group intends to raise its requests with Germany’s transport minister. One among these is the imposition of a uniform speed limit on German highways, which experts say would be an easy and affordable approach to reduce emissions.
