On the 15. May next year, so many people to go on the road and for the climate demonstrate how Switzerland has never seen. To achieve this goal, want to tackle young activists, associations, organizations, communities, and companies – even those that have represented the interests of the economy and never a strike. The has decided the climate of the strike movement at its national Assembly last Sunday.
Only The do not want. You say to request that they, too, want to do something against the climate crisis. "A strike is not our means to respond to it," says Corinne Aeberhard, head of communications of the Swiss industry and trade Association. The economic cripple, was opposed to their interests are diametrically opposed. The Association "would involve" quite sure of a strike.
left-hand helix are not all activists are good at
The Swiss employers ' Association would give the activists a clear rejection: "It is not the task of the employer, private behaviors without reference to the work to control the climate demonstration to call," says Director Roland A. Müller. They sat instead on a climate-friendly work models, which allow the digitalization of today. Dismissive also Economiesuisse, the umbrella Association of the Swiss economy is responding: As an Association, you search with Interested prefer behind-the-Scenes business-friendly and effective solutions. The Commercial Association is still open whether he will participate in the strike.
So from today, The "Strike for our Future," on may 15. May is dominated by left-wing claims. All participating organizations may also bring in your own concerns – you only need to support the demands of the climate strike movement. This will be so, but more in the Background.
With your decision, organisations and associations from left to right tackle, puts into perspective the movement's statements, which had made their representative shortly before the election on Sunday in front of the media: they said they wanted to defend themselves not only against the exploitation of the earth, but also against those of the people. The climate crisis is inextricably linked with social issues. And you announced that you had asked the Swiss trade Union Confederation to support you on your big day of the strike. This has not been settled yet.
no one wants to engage in for the climate, is to be pushed in front of the head.
That was not reached all of the activists is good. "We were all in agreement that we are telling the unions requests to reach over the workers", the activist Andri Gigerl. But that their comrades-in-arms would connect the climate crisis with the workers ' struggle that took many by surprise. A reversal of the decision from the last Sunday is not. "We have only decided officially what was from the outset clear for all."
the activist Matthias Hafner confirmed that with the focus on the workers ' struggle were not all in agreement. Therefore, it has been decided that officially the air strike-motion asking the trade unions, but the "Workers for the Future", came out of the movement. No one wants to engage in for the climate, is to be pushed in front of the head.
"The parents for the climate" followed the increasing focus on left-wing topics also of concern, as the co-founder Jonas Hostettler says. The movement of risk in such a way that a large part of the population of your anti. With this broader focus, also the climate of the parents are in agreement.
trade Association is not ready to talk
the Whole economy to hit close associations to the door, but The trade Association for example, would be prepared, in principle, with the climate activists to work together – just not in the context of a strike. On a Podium on the other hand, around the theme of Upcycling, the employees, the trades very much, could you talk, says Corinne Aeberhard.
climate activist Andri Gigerl is not giving up hope yet to win also organisations outside of the left bearing. "We have to try, at least, finally, the climate belongs to all," he says. Sometimes it come to Surprises. As has been explained about the Bernese farmers Association recently willing to cooperate with you.
