Tübingen (dpa / lsw) - According to their own statements, climate activists do not want to carry out any protest actions in Tübingen - Mayor Boris Palmer thinks that's a good thing. However, he explained on Tuesday that the group's decision had nothing to do with an agreement. "The last generation didn't offer anything, I didn't ask for anything. Because for me that would be attempted blackmail and you can't talk to me about that."
The climate activists announced on Monday that, like in Hanover and Marburg, they would not organize any protests in Tübingen. The statement followed a conversation between four members of the Last Generation and Palmer at the end of February.
After the conversation, the head of the Tübingen town hall published his answer to the climate activists in a Facebook post. He supported the group's proposal to conduct citizen participation at federal level for a climate protection package with the goal of climate neutrality by 2030. The citizens' council seems to him to be a suitable instrument for this. "And my position on a citizens' council would not change if there was a blockade in Tübingen," said Palmer on Tuesday. "One simply has nothing to do with the other."
