Climate stickers impede traffic: support comes from grandmas against the right

First report February 13

: Munich/Vienna - Climate activists strike again this Monday (February 13), this time in Germany and Austria.

In Munich, they blocked the A96 exit to the Mittlerer Ring.

Two activists glued themselves to the street, two others just sat down on the road.

However, traffic is now running again.

Just last week, climate stickers temporarily stopped traffic in downtown Munich.

In Marburg, members of the "Last Generation" brought traffic to a standstill at Rudolphsplatz.

A police spokesman said that University Street in the direction of Pilgrimstein had been closed since Monday morning because of the action.

Here, too, two of the four activists glued themselves to the street.

The city's assembly authority will now coordinate further action with the activists.

On Twitter it is said that Leipzig and Berlin are also affected.

In the federal capital, the "Last Generation" receives support from the citizens' initiative "Grannies against the Right".

"The FDP wants to solve traffic problems with a #climateautobahn, i.e. an extra number of lanes.

This makes the situation worse,” says the Berlin action on Twitter.

Climate stickers block streets in Vienna: protests are to continue every day for two weeks

There is also a larger action in Vienna.

In the capital of Austria, climate stickers brought traffic to a standstill at several points around the Getreidemarkt, the Secession and the Naschmarkt in the direction of Karlsplatz from 8 a.m. through blockades.

The place and time of the protest were announced in advance on Twitter, which is a novelty.

In Vienna, the climate stickers recently complained about "disproportionate" measures by the police - and only got a dry answer.

“We want to get attention and create fairness.

It's not about maliciously interfering in the everyday life of individuals, but about rethinking politics," said an activist to the Austrian newspaper

Der Standard


It's not about endangering someone, it's about setting an example.

In the next two weeks, traffic will be obstructed daily in a central location.

However, whether this is possible depends on how many members remain in police custody, says David Sonnenbaum, a spokesman and co-founder of Last Generation.

However, the roadblocks have already been lifted.

The Vienna police reported on Twitter that all blockades had been cleared, with "17 administrative arrests" being made.
