Hotheads hijack the climate movement

There are scenes of a growing radicalisation. In Basel, dozens of people blocked on Monday the access to the UBS Headquarters on aeschenplatz in Zurich which was the headquarters of the Credit Suisse on the parade square, the target of a Blockade. Provisional balance sheet: A large contingent of police had to clear in the afternoon in Basel, the Bank's input and has taken a handful of activists, in Zurich, 64 persons were discharged. You trespass and coercion are accused of.

The climate movement, which originated from a Swedish girl with dark blonde pigtails, has not reached only verbally a whole new level of aggressiveness, but also with – illegal – acts. Announced it had blocked the escalation in the beginning of June, as in the name of the climate, dozens of people access to the Federal house.

So, these activists achieve on the inside and most Active only one: There is not more discussion about climate policy, but about the illegality of their protests.

It is not clear in what proportion actually Greta Thun, mountain, climate children to the blocking of the interior and occupants. Apparently, a part of the detainees has arrived for the action, especially from abroad, and the most likely to be a lot older than the typical climate of young people.

all this evidence suggests that the radicalization of people that sit astride the genuine concern and deep-felt idealism of the Generation of the Greta, in order to realize their radical ideas of climate policy and the critique of capitalism. It would be then, as so often in the history of protest movements: With the radicalization they lose their actual objectives.

However, even if one of these Hotheads is that you are basically alone, as climate goes, it is clear that the illegal "Action" against the banks and the Federal house is the opposite of what the climate youth with their peaceful demonstrations going on. It is discussed not and more about global warming and its consequences, but about the aggressiveness and illegality of these actions. And thus is recovered for the climate, nothing.
