Protesters Condemn Nationalism, Warn Against Climate Chaos as Europeans Vote for New Parliament

HeadlineJun 10, 2024

On Saturday, an estimated 15,000 protesters took to the streets of Berlin to call out the rising power of the far right. Meanwhile, in Brussels, a group of scientists and climate activists on Friday blocked the entrance to the EU Commission.

Sebastian Gonzato: “We blocked the entrance to the European Commission because we are trying to push for degrowth. No political party really has degrowth on its agenda. And degrowth is a necessity if we want to survive this century, if we don’t want to face ecological, civilizational collapse. And so we need — really need — to talk about it.”
