Bannerdrop-Aktion am Herkules in Kassel

On 25.9.19, activists from KligK climbed a scaffold on the Herkules building in front of the visitors to the water games in the Wilhelmshöher Bergpark and unrolled a banner with the inscription “Our capitalist life – their climate crisis. Für eine Politik, die andern keine Grube gräbt”. In doing so, the activists wanted to draw attention to the fact that already today numerous people – especially in the global South – are affected by thunderstorms, floods and droughts without themselves having made any significant contribution to global climate change.

The campaign can also be seen as a direct response to the climate package adopted by the German government on Friday, which the activists consider to be completely inadequate.

It takes a lot of us to make this uprising happen. We need you to shape this process with us.
