Climate activists of the “last generation” continued their protests in Berlin on Monday at several intersections. There were also occasional physical altercations with the drivers. On the A100, the section between Oberlandstraße and Gradestraße remains closed. Elsewhere, Berlin police managed to end the protest, as announced at noon.

The blockade of the Elsenstraße/Puschkinallee junction in Treptower Park, where protesters were dressed as prisoners, has now been lifted. According to the Traffic Information Centre, the Frankfurter Allee/Möllendorffstrasse intersection is also free again. There were also protest proceedings, which have since been resolved, at the Bundesplatz, on Wisbyer Strasse at the corner of Schönhauser Allee in Prenzlauer Berg and on Yorckstrasse on the corner of Mehringdamm.

“The Last Generation”: airport blockades are no exception

Some protesters also registered themselves. There were long traffic jams. According to the police, there were physical altercations between motorists and bumpers on the Frankfurter Alley at the Ringcenter in Friedrichshain.

According to their own statements, they put on prisoner clothes in protest of the fact that protesters in Munich were locked up due to repeated sieges. They demanded more action from the federal government to combat climate change.

Despite a sharp increase in criticism of their actions, “last generation” activists announced an expansion of their radical protests. “We will take our protest to all areas that will be affected by the climate disaster,” activist Carla Rochelle said on RTL Sunday. The union calls for tougher criminal law for climate activists. However, this was rejected by the Traffic Signs Coalition.

Her movement isn’t in a “popular contest,” Rochelle said on Sunday’s Stern TV show: Activists “don’t want to be liked — but about educating the community that we’re in a climate disaster race.”

The 20-year-old also closed on demand Siege measures at German airports are not enough. In Amsterdam, climate activists were partially paralyzed at Schiphol Airport on Saturday. (with AFP)
