After the death of a cyclist in Berlin, a UN spokesman called for responsibility in climate protests - but also showed understanding for the demos.
UN Secretary-General António Guterres shares the anger and frustration of demonstrators at the lack of progress in the fight against global warming - protests are important. "We saw the youth movements a couple of years ago and I don't think we would have made the progress we've made without those movements," continued Dujarric.
The background is a debate about an incident in Berlin: According to the fire department, a special vehicle that was supposed to help free a cyclist who was injured in an accident under a truck last Monday was stuck in a traffic jam. This is said to have been triggered by a climate protest. The activists are criticized after the accident that resulted in the death of the woman.
