Activists tape themselves to road on Earth Day – traffic is paralyzed

On “Earth Day” there were further protest actions for sustainable transport policy. In Frankfurt, the “Last Generation” blocked a busy road and caused a traffic jam.

Climate activists have continued their protests in Frankfurt am Main. On Friday morning they blocked the Untermain Bridge and paralyzed traffic there for almost an hour. According to the police, seven people took part in the action, four of whom stuck to the street. The group Scientist Rebellion itself spoke of eight participants.

With banners they called on the federal government to stop the expansion and financing of fossil infrastructure projects. With this, the scientists showed their solidarity with the program of the last generation. In the past few days, this had repeatedly brought traffic to a standstill with similar actions in Frankfurt.
