Sun, Wind and Water
Munich was out on the streets today, protesting against the government’s energy policy. The tenor of the protest was that nuclear plants should finally be shut down in favor of renewable energy. I came to Munich in 1962 and have never seen crowds like this in downtown Munich before. This is a topic that moves probably not just Munich, but the nation.
Several interests groups, political parties and all age groups were present. I saw lots of fellow members of the generation of ’68. I for one had lost faith in the effectiveness of demonstrations. I am sure many others are also disillusioned. But there we were, out on the streets once more.
