Representatives of the "last generation" in Baden-Württemberg should not hope to meet Prime Minister Winfried Kretschmann (Greens). Kretschmann said on Tuesday in Stuttgart that he considers the climate activists' sticking actions to be "highly worthy of criticism", even if he shares their goals.
The actions met with displeasure from the overwhelming majority of the population and are therefore not the right means. "You don't need to talk to me about that," he said.
Hanover's Lord Mayor Belit Onay (Greens) had agreed on a cooperation with the "Last Generation" a good two weeks ago. Onay sent an open letter to the Bundestag asking the leaders of the SPD, Greens, FDP, CDU and Left Party parliamentary groups to discuss the climate protection demands of the "last generation" in parliament. He shares the view of the last generation that current measures to combat climate change are not enough, it said. Demands from the group could help achieve climate goals. He asked the parliamentary groups to discuss this and to give more support to climate protection measures in the municipalities.
In return, the city's climate protectors assured them that they would "completely stop the protests in Hanover that were initially suspended". The agreement between the mayor and the activists was met with strong criticism in some cases.
On Tuesday, two Last Generation activists pasted a poster of Onay's letter to the Reichstag building in Berlin. While a second poster was being affixed to the north entrance of the Bundestag in the Reichstag building, a police officer intervened and tore the paper from the wall. The two members of the last generation also distributed the letter as a leaflet in front of the Bundestag and then discussed it with politicians. Police officers secured the posters and determined the personal details of the demonstrators.
