Una cosa sono le parole ed un’altra sono i fatti.

Una cosa è gridare a gran voce ‘democrazia‘ ed un’altra, totalmente differente, è metterla in pratica.

Se è sequenziale al concetto che in democrazia viga il diritto alla libera parola, ad esprimere il proprio punto di vista, dovrebbe essere altrettanto sequenziale che ciò fosse fatto nel rispetto della esistenza e della libertà altrui.

Quando in una nazione che si definirebbe ‘democratica‘ si permette che una trentina di persone blocchino per molto tempo una linea ferroviaria e, con essa, il traffico merci di un’azienda produttrice, alla libertà è subentrato l’arbitrio.

Comanda non la maggioranza ma chi vuole prevaricare.

I dimostranti ritengono, sia pure implicitamente, di essere i depositari di una verità assoluta e globale, donde trarrebbero la giustificazione ad imporre con la forza le idee che sostengono. Si attua de facto la dittatura di una minoranza organizzata e motivata, spesso stipendiata. Questo è il primo passo verso la dittatura politica. Questo è stato un punto di passaggio della presa del potere da parte del partito nazionalsocialista.

Nelle democrazie occidentali il Cittadino vale quando come Elettore si sceglie i suoi governanti. Le elezioni sono il cuore centrale della democrazia.

Poi, gli eletti si daranno da fare per fare approvare in parlamento delle leggi.

Se alla maggioranza compete il governo, alla minoranza compete l’adeguarsi alla volontà della maggioranza: se questo fondamentale equilibrio venisse a meno, la democrazia crollerebbe.

È il parlamento, non la piazza. il posto ove si concretizza l’azione politica.

Sono democratici questi dimostranti? Bene. A giorni in Germania si andrà a votare in tre Länder e constateremo il risultato delle urne.


Deutsche Welle. 2019-08-14. German climate protesters block train carrying Volkswagen cars

Dozens of climate protesters tied themselves to a train track in front of a freight train to protest the German government’s ‘failed climate policy.’.

A group of environmental activists stopped a train loaded with 200 brand new Volkswagen (VW) cars in the northern city of Wolfsburg for several hours on Tuesday, in protest of the automotive industry’s contribution to climate change.

Local police said that around three dozen activists participated in the protest, and several of them tied themselves to the tracks between the VW factory and a local station, forcing the train to stop on a bridge.

About 15 officers responded to the incident, but initially saw no reason to take immediate measures against the activists.

According to German rail company Deutsche Bahn, as the train was on a feeder track leaving the VW factory in Wolfsburg, other rail traffic in the area was not affected by the blockade. 

Calls for a ‘transport revolution’

A police spokesperson said the blockade was cleared in the evening and protesters who had abseiled from the bridge were collected by a police boat waiting in the canal below. Several activists were detained, but Wolfsburg police told news agency AFP a short time later that they had all been released.

According to the German press agency dpa, the activists said they were trying to delay the production process. VW said that the protest action had no effect on the production and distribution of vehicles.

One of the groups participating in the blockade said in a blog post that the protest was in response to the “failed climate policy” of the German government in regards to mobility and fostering a “transport revolution.”

According to AFP, a handful of activists connected to the rail blockade were spending the night in a metal globe in the entrance hall of VW’s headquarters. They planned to end their protest on Wednesday with a press conference.

In a statement, VW said that climate protection and sustainability were among the company’s top priorities and that it regularly invited environmental organizations for discussions on sustainable mobility.
