Saxony: climate activists temporarily block crossing in Dresden

Dresden (dpa/sn) - Climate activists in Dresden have protested against the continued use of fossil fuels in Germany. According to their own statements, the participants blocked a traffic light intersection three times for seven minutes each on Tuesday morning, as a spokesman for the group "Last Generation" said. The 16 activists temporarily stopped motor vehicle traffic. According to the information, there was a total traffic disruption of 30 minutes. According to the Dresden Police Headquarters, the action on St. Petersburger Strasse took place without incident. According to their own statements, the police were on duty with 20 officers during the announced action.

Under the motto "Stop the fossil madness", the climate protectors are concerned with a mobility turnaround in favor of environmentally friendly means of transport, said the spokesman. They demanded that Federal Economics Minister Robert Habeck (Greens) refrain from building and financing new fossil infrastructure - including LNG terminals for liquid gas. Instead, it is important to use more renewable energy sources such as the power of the sun and wind.
