Germany, 18 November. Chittranjan Dubey (XR Germany and India) says:
“I come from India, and for me it’s an act of conscience. I have been influenced by Mahatma Gandhi, who sat on fast many times in his life to express his dismay against the atrocities of imperialism. Now, I am sitting on fast in one of the most developed countries on this planet, Germany, to raise awareness around the severity of the climate and ecological crisis by punishing my body. Through personal sufferings, I want to increase the alarm that if the stern steps are not taken now, we won’t be able to stop the 6th mass extinction.
“India is already suffering due to climatic conditions, and hundreds of thousands of people are becoming climate refugees each year and entering into extreme poverty. As a person of color, and coming from a developing country, fasting in Europe’s biggest economy is the strongest message in itself that I am not going to sit silent no matter in which part of the world I am.
“This act is symbolic in many ways where activists are going to sacrifice their health so that all species could be saved. No matter an individual sits for a day or several days, it shows how serious they are and love mother earth. If anything goes wrong to these activists, the respective and the democratically elected government must take moral responsibility. Global Climate Hunger Strike is going to be unique in human history because the first time so many people from all parts of the world are sitting on fast to stop the ecological crisis. It’s a spiritual revolution.
“Since the governments have taken no extreme measures to stop the ecological collapse, these hunger strikers are now going to another extreme, and it is just a beginning.”
