The Dresden climate activist Christian Bläul from the "Last Generation" has expressed himself very clearly about the risk that road users could die as a result of the protests: "At least in the back of my mind I'm always mentally prepared for someone dying in our traffic jams - especially through one Accident at the end of the traffic jam, it could really be that people die and that's really hard to bear, but it's something we have to risk a bit." The news portal "t-online" reported about it first.
The 41-year-old was followed for a year for a 40-minute documentary by Sachsen Fernsehen (which you can watch here): It began with his trip to Sweden to block a road there and the subsequent 16 days in custody until the current protests in Dresden. He continued to ask himself, "Which is better? Not to protest and accept that we are going to fossil business as usual or try something that could transform society and make us stop the climate catastrophe.”
The Saxon police chief Jörg Kubiessa reacted unequivocally in the film: "I don't support that at all. Since it is precisely at the ends of the traffic jam that life is in danger, they are not allowed to do so. So the answer is very clear: That doesn't fit my understanding of the law at all."
