Thousands of students filled the streets and marched in support of climate protection, in Berlin and Frankfurt, on Friday.
Around 5,000 and 4,500 protesters are reported in Berlin and Frankfurt respectively, by the media.
Demonstrators were seen holding signs such as “Make ecology great gain” or “There is no planet B.”
Angela, who’s a student, underlined the importance of immediate action for climate and said that “for the young people, the future is very much ahead of us. That means that those who are already elderly won’t live in the future that they have damaged. So the young people should fight for their own future.”
Adults were also present at the march. One of them, Christine, praised students for demonstrating by saying that “I think it is so important, they do such a great job and I think is so important that they show they are so disappointed with us adults and with the politicians.”
The demonstrations in the German cities are part of a larger movement, as the strike for the future has mobilised people from all around Europe, amid European elections.
The strike originates from “Fridays for Future”, a movement that was initiated by Swedish student Greta Thunberg, who has been demonstrating on Fridays since August 2018 under the motto “School strike for the climate” in front of the Swedish Parliament in Stockholm.
