Austrian Airport Blockade
Veronika Short, 22, asks, “But what are we celebrating? Are we celebrating that there has been no climate protection law for over 1000 days, that we continue to subsidize major greenhouse gas emitters such as air traffic and are thus further destroying the future of our children, who should have a nice day on the bouncy castle and with show flights today?”
Moritz Holzinger, 24, says, “One kilometer by plane on a domestic flight is 31 times more harmful to the climate than one kilometer by train. But this is not about individual responsibility, but about the political framework. Kerosene is not taxed and flights are still subsidized. How are people supposed to switch to the train when a ticket for the same route costs 30 times as much as a comparable plane ticket?”

“What are our responsibilities at this time? Because of the fossil fuel industry, we are facing horrors of a magnitude never before experienced in our existence. Our government continues to lead us to the edge of no return. We must stand up and defend ourselves. No one else is going to do it. It must be us, if we want to live.
Our methods must be disruptive, and they must be nonviolent. Our actions are evidence-based, credible, and we have a plan. The only thing missing at this point in time is YOU!”
