(Translated from German) German Basic Law "The state is also responsible for protecting the natural foundations of life for future generations."

As recently as 2021, the Federal Constitutional Court of Germany found the government's climate protection law fell far short of meeting the constitutional obligation to protect life and health from the dangers of climate change. However, in recent months, Germany still failed to draw up emergency programs for roads and buildings. That’s why Last Generation Germany took to the streets. These three supporters had this to say.

Maria Hess, 58, teacher, said "If I have the choice between either applause for myself without effectively changing anything in collective reality, or the chance to make an effective contribution to saving the world, without getting applause for it – what choice do I make then?”

Dennis Köhler, 28, student, said "It doesn't help anyone to ignore and criminalize us people who work with great commitment for the survival of all. As long as the emergency and government failures are so blatant, we and more and more people will continue to protest. That's why we're sitting here today!"

Edmund Schultz, 59, project manager, said “The climate crisis is not just urgent and serious. It is an existential threat." He adds: "When the world is in greatest danger, we must protest against the further destruction of livelihoods - more than ever before. It is a matter of conscience.”

Four civil disobedience activists (including one rebel) blocked the road to the Burning Man festival. It generated hundreds of media stories.

Another rebel glued his feet to the floor of Arthur Ashe stadium and stopped a US Open semi-final game for 49 minutes. It generated thousands of media hits worldwide, inserted the topic of climate emergency where it is least seen - the sports pages.

Would you like to be a part of this new wave of climate actions, where a small number of brave people can make a big impact?

Come learn from these two rebels. It's not hard. It just needs a bit of pluck, a bit of creativity, and a straightforward message.

“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!”
