Henning, 21 years old

“I"I'm Henning, 21 years old, from Greifswald, I withdraw from my studies in political science, I'm now going on hunger strike... because I have a clear vision: We must finally talk honestly.

Because we are really fucked up - the Co2 values continue to rise! They are rising and rising. CO2 values don’t care about the green-painted election campaign. The next government has to reduce emissions drastically to have a chance. And the plans of the parties are all insufficient, that is simple mathematics. So chancellor candidates Armin Laschet, Olaf Scholz, Annalena Baerbock... How long do we have to go on hunger strike until we finally talk honestly?

The only hope left to protect life is people like you and me pointing to the state of emergency.

So if you've ever asked yourself, "What would I have done during the Third Reich, or during the American Black Civil Rights Movement, or at any other historical time?" It's essentially what you're doing right now.

When the government fails so badly to protect our future, the young generation is left with nothing but peaceful resistance. The hunger strike is a risky venture, but to dare nothing would be far riskier. We are fasting for life."
