Shutdown two, week sixteen


#climateaction #climateemergency #climatestrike #cologne #fridaysforfuture #politics

The number of infections is slowly increasing again. Surprise! Not. We knew that the new mutations would be more contagious, but still, our government refuses to acknowledge and prepare for the third wave. A year ago Friday, right-wing terrorists murdered six people in Hanau (Hesse). There were vigils in their honor all over Germany as Continue reading Shutdown two, week sixteen

Shutdown two, week ten


#climateaction #climateemergency #climatestrike #cologne #fridaysforfuture #politics

Still no end in sight; today, our government has tightened the contact restrictions again and extended the lockdown to the end of January. Quite rightly so, the infection rates are still way too high. Even though we all know that the virus transmits from person to person, some politicians from our governing party advocate to Continue reading Shutdown two, week ten

It came, and it went, my first virtual New Years Eve. Relatively uneventful, zooming with family and friends, and watching a Techno live stream on Twitch. The start of the new year was not a big thing; were still in the first year of life in the age of pandemics, and nothing is going to Continue reading Shutdown two, week nine

Shutdown two, week six


#climateaction #climateemergency #climatestrike #cologne #fridaysforfuture #politics

As expected, the current lockdown measures were not enough to slow the infection rates, and we will go into a much harder lockdown beginning Wednesday. Schools and shops will close, and contact restrictions will remain in place over Christmas and New Years. Then there is still the other crisis, the looming climate emergency. Two years Continue reading Shutdown two, week six

Shutdown two, week five


#climateaction #climateemergency #climatestrike #cologne #fridaysforfuture

The current measures do not reduce the number of infections enough; this week, state and federal governments will convene again to tighten the rules. Aside from Covid-19, we also had two significant events on the other crisis, the climate emergency: On Friday, we had a scientist, Jason von Juterczenka, deliver a fascinating lecture on tipping Continue reading Shutdown two, week five

Shutdown two, third week


#climateaction #climateemergency #climatestrike #cologne #fridaysforfuture #politics

Infection rates are dropping way too slowly; we will likely see an extension of the current lockdown at the next federal conference tomorrow. Still, Police in the state of Hessen is using the lockdown to press ahead with the utterly unnecessary destruction of the Dannenrder Forst. And the Greens are keeping their silence. All over Continue reading Shutdown two, third week

The Greens


#climateaction #climateemergency #climatestrike #cologne #politics

We need to talk: For the past decades, you have billed yourself as the leading party supporting the protection of our environment. In the face of the current climate emergency, the ecological movement has grown into a worldwide climate justice movement. However, in the states where you are governing, youre coming up short sending Continue reading The Greens

Its not only the Dannenrder Forst or the open-pit mine Garzweiler where our politicians stick to the ideas of yesteryear and ignore the climate emergency. In our fair city, Cologne, the city council is determined to destroy the citys lung, the green belt, for our soccer clubs benefit. The club is not that successful, they Continue reading Gleueler Wiesen

#climateaction #climateemergency #climatestrike #cologne #fridaysforfuture #politics

One year ago, we decided to add an after-work protest to the weekly climate strikes. Much has happened since, not least, a global pandemic, but one thing did not change: Our politicians still largely ignore the climate emergency. They seem unwilling to change, adapt, and leave the fossil era behind, not for themselves and not Continue reading One year later

In 2020, Germany builds a new motorway through three old and precious forests, severely endangering biodiversity and the supply of drinking water for the surrounding villages. The states government is a Black/Green coalition (in US colors, that would be Blue/Green the Christian Democrats in Germany occupy a comparable space in the political landscape as Continue reading Danni bleibt

NRWE


#climateaction #climateemergency #climatestrike #cologne #fridaysforfuture #politics

All scientists and most politicians agree that the age of fossil fuels is past and that we need to focus on clean, renewable energy. We also know that the demand for lignite will dramatically decrease over the next decade. However, RWE is still planning to enlarge the open-pit mine at Garzweiler and destroy several villages Continue reading NRWE

Global Climate Strike


#climateaction #climateemergency #climatestrike #cologne #fridaysforfuture #politics

Last Friday, September 25, was the latest global Climate Strike. After a long break, due to the Corona pandemic, we went back to the streets to protest against how our governments ignore the Climate Emergency and destroy our future. All while following the Corona distancing rules, of course. Cologne alone had 10,000 protestors in the Continue reading Global Climate Strike

Cologne goes green


#climateaction #climateemergency #climatestrike #cologne #fridaysforfuture #politics

On Sunday, we had local elections in the state of North-Rhine Westphalia. In my home town, Cologne, the Greens reached a clear majority in both the city council and the boroughs. Lets make Cologne climate-neutral and keep it colorful, tolerant, and diverse in the years to come! (Source: https://wahlen.stadt-koeln.de/prod/KW2020/05315000/html5/index.html, 9/14/20)

On Friday, September 25, well have the next global climate strike! Fighting the climate emergency is as important as ever, and we need to keep up the pressure on our politicians. Last Friday, we had a relatively successful dress rehearsal in Cologne and were able to validate the distancing concepts for the next big protest. Continue reading September 25

Pandemimimis defile parliament building


#climateemergency #climatestrike #fridaysforfuture #politics #socialmedia

This weekend saw a big gathering of right-wing extremists and Corona-deniers in our capital, Berlin. During their protests, a group went to the stairs in front of our parliament building, brandishing the Reichs hateful symbols absolutely disgusting and shameful! The Police should have prevented this, but they were sadly understaffed, with only three officers Continue reading Pandemimimis defile parliament building

Coal


#climateaction #climateemergency #climatestrike #cologne #fridaysforfuture #politics

Our government recently passed a law that guarantees several large corporations, such as RWE and LEAG, the right to mine lignite until 2038. It also awards them huge compensation for shutting down money-losing plants. Theres no need for coal-firing plants to generate electricity its even not commercially viable anymore. Instead of protecting the environment Continue reading Coal

Amazing to see so many placing shoes for climate action in Copenhagen today. People demanding climate action are no longer invisible, we are very much still fighting for #ClimateJustice #FridaysForFuture #ClimateStrike #dkpol
