Environmentalists started a protest on Monday afternoon in the largest lecture hall of the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT). Lectures are still taking place.
Banners were hung in front of and in front of Audemax, calling for climate justice, among other things. About a dozen youth activists were there on Monday afternoon, to join the global protest organized by the End Fossil Occupy group. Between the lectures there should always be activities at Audimax.
Several demands on the KIT
Protesters have several demands on KIT. For example, KIT’s renewable energies should be expanded as quickly as possible. Among other things, the electricity supply for the North Campus must be covered entirely from renewable energy, in accordance with the request. In addition, students should be able to help shape the concept of energy and climate protection at KIT.
KIT runs protests
According to KIT, he sees no reason to “end students’ peaceful protest.” Teaching is not affected. In a statement, the university confirmed that renewable energies and their storage are among the main research topics at KIT.
It is unclear how long the protest will last.
