Climate change – Climate activists glued themselves to Vienna’s Ringstrasse

Climate activists blocked traffic on the Vienna Ringstrasse near the Schottentor station around 8:30 a.m. on Tuesday. Several people got stuck on the street. According to the police, traffic will be diverted. In view of inflation, record drought and another heat wave that is beginning, the members of the “last generation” are calling on the federal government to finally counter the climate and energy crisis with sensible austerity measures.

“There is enough money for new concrete slopes”

Above all, there must be a lower speed limit on the Autobahn, according to the activists. One of those stuck is Isabell Eckl, 28, a familiar face from the protests against the city highway. “Fossil capitalism only helps the richest, everyone else gets crushed in the madness of growth. While rising prices are troubling more and more people, there is always enough money for new concrete roads. The priorities are wrong! 100 km/h on the autobahn, on the other hand, costs money nothing and immediately saves hundreds of thousands of liters of fuel,” she was quoted as saying in a broadcast by the “Last Generation Austria”.

According to a police spokesman, seven people stuck themselves on the ring road. “The mission is ongoing,” he told the Associated PressA. Again and again the activists of the “last generation” block main traffic routes in the federal capital at the beginning of the week. Just two weeks ago, they had stuck to the distribution group in Vienna-Favoriten to draw attention to the climate crisis and demand countermeasures. (apa)
