Activists gathered in Berlin, maintain this Wednesday a hunger strike and ask to meet with the three main candidates to succeed Chancellor Angela Merkel after the elections next 26th.
Stationed near the buildings that house the Parliament and the Chancellery, the young people are demanding to talk with the conservative Armin Laschet, the Social Democrat Olaf Scholz and the ecologist Annalena Baerbock about the effects of climate change.
All three candidates addressed environmental issues in their campaigns and Baerbock even advocated placing carbon neutrality as the top priority of the next government.
Among the strikers’ demands is the creation of a ‘committee of citizens representing the whole spectrum of society to push for measures to protect the environment’.
The local press showed images of the members of the small group sitting in a circle and under the visible effects of voluntary fasting.
Some of the protesters posted messages with their demands to the Merkel government on the Twitter social network.
