For the second day in a row, the “Last Generation” climate protection initiative blocked streets in Berlin. On the Berlin city highway 100, there were initially impairments at the Halensee and Sachsendamm exits on Thursday morning, said a police spokeswoman. Several people were glued to the roadway.

The Berlin traffic information center reported on Twitter that the A111, A100 and A113 motorways were affected. The longest traffic jam formed on the A100 in the direction of Neukölln.

In Wilmersdorf, a demonstrator was injured when the A100 was blocked. The “Last Generation” published a video on Twitter. In it, a man describes that he suffered a broken collarbone and a slight concussion. He also suffered abrasions and his backpack was torn. He wears an arm sling. The Berlin police confirmed that a protester was injured.

A spokesman for the authority said the police were aware of the video and the circumstances. According to this, eight demonstrators blocked road traffic in the morning at the Autobahn exit on Konstanzer Straße. Four of them are said to have stuck themselves.

The police cleared the road. The blockers would then have wanted to go back onto the road. The police officers would have prevented this by pushing and pushing away. One person then complained of headache and shoulder pain. An ambulance was requested and the person was taken to a clinic, the police spokesman said.

According to the police, there had already been blockades at six locations on the A100 the day before, and a total of 43 people were involved. She is now being investigated for coercion.

On Thursday, the initiative reiterated its call on Chancellor Olaf Scholz (SPD) to speak out against oil drilling in the North Sea.
