Protester: What do we want?
Crowd: Climate justice!
P: When do we want it?
(Typical Germans, even when protesting, always polite.)
What started off as a pupils' protest, seems to have attracted quite a lot of irate middle-agers. One even lugged along his surfboard.
Miguel and Lourdes had come all the way from Toledo, Spain, to protest.
Hopefully not by plane?
Anyway guys, love your placards.
"Your car is too big"
Young and old in Munich agree that there are just too many SUVs parading around the grandiose Residenzplatz. Still, if you have a stately SUV, that's probably the very place you will want to flash it around.
I joined the march quite spontaneously. But next time I'll go better prepared. Probably with a placard that says something like 'We can all help the environment. Buy less plastic and cut down waste!"
However big and flashy (or small and modest) the car we drive, however important it is for us to fly - avoiding plastic and helping to reduce waste is something we can all do.
