Traffic light coalition: climate activists put pressure on party trio

Shortly after the coalition talks began, the pressure on the negotiators increased to provide answers to pressing social questions.

Climate protection activists in particular are demanding that the future federal government put the fight against climate change at the center of the political agenda.

Almost four weeks after the federal election *, thousands demonstrated in Berlin on Friday for more ambitions in terms of climate protection.

There were blockades in front of the party headquarters of the SPD and the Greens.

Activist Luisa Neubauer warned the traffic light negotiators to keep their promises in terms of climate protection.

"And when we stand here now and say: 'Dear government, dear coalition partners: inside, 1.5 degrees', then we mean it, it is not up for negotiation, we do not do things by halves," said Neubauer in front of the SPD Headquarters.

The 25-year-old had already put pressure on the SPD, Greens and FDP in the days before.

. The fact that in the future, Olaf Scholz *, another Social Democrat, should sit in the Chancellery does not cause her any sleepless nights. There will be political differences, that goes without saying, she said. "But I can sleep peacefully."

Merkel does not share the concerns that a traffic light coalition * led by social democrats could run into too much debt.

"With Mr. Scholz, I didn't always get the impression that the money was loose," added Merkel.

The 67-year-old can look back on the current coalition negotiations.
