Aimée van Baalen, spokeswoman for the climate activist group “Last Generation”, talks about her salary as a climate gluer.
In the TV talk of “Hart aber fair” on Monday evening climate change – and climate bonding was discussed. Activists from the group “Last Generation” stick themselves to the ground again and again. In the show, one of the activists now talks about how this finances her life.
Aimée van Baalen (23), spokeswoman for the activist group “Last Generation” says on the show: “I get a salary for the educational work I do.”
“It’s minimum wage”
When moderator Louis Klamroth (33) asks who is financing it, van Baalen avoids it. She refers to the transparency report. She makes it clear: you earn “average” as a climate gluer. “That’s minimum wage.”
Aimée van Baalen hailed critical questions. But she defends the adhesive actions by saying that the state is breaking the rules of the Paris climate agreement. For this reason, “The Last Generation” would continue to protest – and stick to the streets.
Among other things, the group demands a speed limit and a nine-euro ticket in Germany. In the program, the activist also calls for a social council in which citizens and experts decide on binding climate protection measures.
Moderator loves Luisa Neubauer
CDU politician Gitta Connemann (58), who is also invited, counters whether the German Bundestag is already doing this.
However, one topic remains unaddressed on the “Hard but fair” show. Moderator Louis Klamroth is with climate activist Luisa Neubauer (26). Like Aimée van Baalen, she is also involved in “Fridays for Future”. But the moderator didn’t comment on that. (eu)
