In an ORF interview on Wednesday, Federal President Alexander Van der Bellen spoke about the climate crisis and got emotional. He not only vehemently called for more speed in countermeasures, but also sharply opposed those who describe the climate adhesive activists as “terrorists” – without naming the FPÖ. Doing this is “distasteful of the first order,” because “these people use glue, a terrorist uses explosives.” Van der Bellen also clearly opposed the demand for higher penalties for blockages of climate adhesives made by the governor Johanna Mikl-Leitner (ÖVP) in the run-up to the Lower Austrian state elections: “I think that’s way overshooting the mark.” For “really reasonable” he thought 100 km/h on the Autobahn.

For almost a year, activists of the “last generation” have been blocking Vienna’s morning traffic in particular. The anniversary will be in February when the next week of action is scheduled to start on February 13th. The demands of the “last generation” remain the same: the end of all nine oil and gas wells in Austria, an end to all these international projects and a speed limit of 100 km/h on the autobahn, “half a million tons of CO2 would be saved in one fell swoop”.
