Now it has targeted the actions of big car manufacturers, the radical climate movement “Last Generation”.
Around 40 activists from the movement blocked three roads leading to a BMW plant in the German city of Regensburg (152,000 inhabitants) this morning to demonstrate for a more coherent climate protection policy. According to media reports, climate stickers blocked the access roads shortly before the start of the shift. It is said that some workers stood on the road in a normal way.
Police immediately reopened one route. At two other entrances, it took a little longer to clear the workers from the road. Participants carried placards that read, “Here’s to a nice ideal world – how much longer?” Or “Allow climate disaster = Violation of the Constitution”.
Writes “Last Generation” on Twitter (X): “Companies like BMW have known for decades the destruction caused by the massive CO2 emissions of their products and are happily profiting from it. Not even the government intervenes However, it is his duty to protect our fundamental rights.”
And further: “We hereby condemn the continued uncontrolled burning of fossil fuels in the transport sector. There has been no improvement here in the last 30 years.”
Already on Monday, activists of the “last generation” in Regensburg blocked ten important streets and intersections for hours. Police said a total of 48 people had taken part in the protest – twelve activists were arrested on Monday evening on a court order.
