The climate justice movement occupied Bundesplatz on Monday morning, September 21. The city of Bern gave the activists an ultimatum to vacate the place by Tuesday noon. On Monday evening, the National Council approved a motion for an order from SVP National Councilor Thomas Aeschi, calling on the city of Bern to vacate the Bundesplatz immediately.

The undersigned take the side of the activists and call on the city of Bern to respect the climate justice movement and not to vacate the Bundesplatz. They are calling on the National Council to withdraw the regulatory proposal and immediately adopt a climate-friendly policy with the goal of reducing greenhouse gas emissions to net zero by 2030 at the latest.

At the climate camp, the various actors of the climate justice movement such as Collective Climate Justice, Extinction Rebellion, Climate Strike and Collectif Break Free all work together for the first time.

From September 20 to 25, it will be shown in Bern what a climate-friendly coexistence could look like in the future. The different aspects of climate justice are to be addressed with workshops, discussions and various activities.

Collectively, the activists want to think in climate gatherings about what a social and just world without the exploitation of nature can look like.
