"Summer Plan 2023" leaked: Climate glue wants to change strategy - Whole group is targeted
In recent weeks, the so-called climate stickers had drawn attention to themselves with numerous campaigns. After an interruption of the road blockades in recent weeks, the climate protection initiative Letzte Generation now wants to launch targeted actions against "the rich". From next week, they want to "go to the symbols of modern wealth" and "draw attention to the reckless waste of the rich," according to a "summer plan 2023" by the group, the validity of which was confirmed on request.
The German government is allowing "super-rich people to destroy our livelihoods day after day." The climate catastrophe is being made "primarily by the rich". The group does not yet want to say what concrete actions are planned in this context. From July 15 to August 6, the group wants to take a kind of summer break and interrupt their actions. From 7 August, there will be a campaign, especially in Bavaria, also with a view to the state elections there. In the fall, Berlin will once again be the focus of protests.
Climate adhesives always cause a stir
The climate activists had repeatedly blocked roads in Berlin and other cities since January 2022, sometimes gluing themselves to each other. They are calling for a more decisive approach by politicians to climate protection than has been the case so far. In May, the Bavarian police and prosecutor's office searched 15 apartments and business premises of the group in 7 federal states. The accusation was of forming or supporting a criminal organization.
After the raid and the blocking of some accounts, the group collected 450,000 euros in donations "in a very short time" through a supporter initiative, she emphasized in her communication channels. At the same time, donations and help were asked for and various training courses were offered. For example, normal demonstrators or participants in actions of the group are not allowed to talk to the press at first, but "must" first attend an "introductory press training" and two "practice sessions".
Climate activists of the "Last Generation" recently sprayed luxury shops with paint on Berlin's Ku'damm. Passers-by complain furiously about the action.
