"Last generation": Klima-Glue sticks to the table during the process

First report from Thursday, February 23:

Berlin – Again and again members of the “Last Generation” have to appear in court.

Again and again the group paralyzes parts of Germany.

Currently also back in Hamburg.

Now, an action by a member could have legal repercussions: a scandal broke out in the trial against climate activist Henning Jeschke.

The founding member of the group "Last Generation" jumped up on Thursday, February 23, in the middle of the hearing at the Tiergarten district court in Berlin and glued himself to the table.

"I got stuck.

I have to do it because we have to talk about a climate emergency," said the 23-year-old in room D107.

"I'm sorry," said Jeschke.

The judge refused and pointed out that "this is not the forum," said the climate activist.

“More than three billion people are in a life-threatening situation.

The Aldi in England rations the vegetables.

More and more bad harvests are coming,” says Jeschke.

You will slip into famine in rich Europe.

At the same time, more and more oil wells were being tapped, and the rich were retreating to their bunkers.

While Jeschke is giving his speech, a judicial officer appears to be leaving the courtroom.

"Last Generation": Activist sticks to table

"We have to see that the people who continue to do this shit in private jets that destroy the climate are brought to justice.

That those who destroy the climate are held accountable," Reschke demands.

Shortly thereafter, the recording ends abruptly.

Jeschke is taken into the police grip.

It remains to be seen whether his message will be successful.

The process is about several actions by the group "Last Generation" in the period from March to June 2022, in which he is said to have participated.

The public prosecutor's office in Berlin accuses Jeschke of coercion, resistance to law enforcement officials and dangerous intervention in road traffic.

Criminal orders have already been issued.

According to the reporter, the judge left the room and alerted the court officials.

These should detach the accused.

The audience had to leave the hall.
