please Britain!

Please, please Britain think twice before you jump into the arms of Donald Trump! You belong to Europe! Look at the maps, our history, our values and your inhabitants.

Britain this is crazy! 
A disaster for the climate and social justice! A disaster for the fight against populism and the far-right, the fight for decency, truth and facts and solidarity.
Good luck with your mini Trump.
Maybe Corbyn, the Labour manifesto and all those young inspired activists where just a bit ahead of time. Don`t give up!

climate emergency

COP25 - do something!
Leaders of the world show courage amid a global climate crisis. Make your country "first" on climate action.

What else must happen for you to act? You can not eat money!

solidarity to Hong Kong

My deepest solidarity to the protesters in Hong Kong. 
It is again so depressing to follow what is going on - and so amazing to watch these wonderful young students! And all the supporters in the city! Stay save.
Where is the UN? Where is the UK? US?
Heartbreaking!

CONGRATULATIONS!!!! A really strong message about democracy.

autumn





My small pieces of Baltic amber from our beaches and the algae with plastic litter in autumn colors.

bitter betrayal

It is depressing - and infuriating - to see what happens when two egomaniac old men cornered make a phone call. What kind of democracy is that? My deepest solidarity with the Kurdish and Syrian people in Rojava - and of course with all refugees in the middle east and the whole wide world. Shame on the world. We need a new UN.

again

Again and again Jews can not feel save in Germany. It is a shame! "Never again!"?? Again and again.

coastal cleanup day





I did a little beach cleanup. Typical findings: balloons, flip flops, doggy pooh bags, sweets wrapper, cigarette ends. This beach is quite clean - no autumn storm yet.

"how dare you!"

Great Greta,
you are so brave and I stand in awe!
You made me cry, you made me feel ashamed for all the so called adults in the room.
And it felt soooo good to be among all those young and old people on the climate strike last Friday.

Never ever again

Today Sept.1 marks the 80th anniversary of the Nazi Invasion of Poland - the begin of World War II. And Germany is deafening silent. No official commemoration. Only rising numbers of far right voters in today's eastern Germany regional elections. To the border of Poland.
Dangerous stupid nationalism is rising worldwide.
Never ever again.

Free Captain Rackete

Free Captain Rackete! 
To rescue drowning human beings is not a crime!
It is an obligation according to maritime and international humanitarian law.
EU stop your inhumane migration policy and stop neofascist Salvini and Orban to do your dirty work.

AC2106 fridays for future

My full solidarity with the brave kids on Friday 21 of June!
It is a shame they need to do that.
Shame on Europe to even fail the insufficient 2050 limit after such a big win for the Greens.

Go vote for Europe


Go out and vote in favor of Europe. 
We must fight this new fascism.
We have to declare climate emergency.
We have to protect basic human rights.
Europe needs to be the adult in the world.
NEVER EVER AGAIN

men - where are you?

Men - where is your outrage against this war on women? Your standing up, speaking out against this crusade of radical Christian patriarchs against women and their basic human rights? Christians who call rape and incest God willing? Shame on you!
And shame on you Christian women betraying women. Who do you think you are to decide over another women's body? Stop this religious crusade and respect human rights above all.

But distance to this fascistic comments.

clean beach




A few days ago I went to check if a beach clean up would be necessary. Looked clean. Today I thought about the Ocean Initiatives and the beach clean ups I used to do and went to the beach. 7 black plastic bags, some transparent plastic sheets, a wine bottle, an orange toy shovel. 


Usually packaging shows German text, most trash is homemade. You will find Cyrillic letters - Russia is not so far away.  Sometimes south Asian letters - ship crew members are often from there. Polish trash, Italian, Danish, Swedish, English, ... But I never found Arabic trash. It looked like Ikea food and indeed - Swedish halal chicken grillers.

Ocean Initiatives

The annual Ocean Initiatives organized by Surfrider Foundation - this weekend. 
www.oceaninitiatives.org
This year without me.
Hope you all do participate whenever you are near a beach, a river or lake. Or in the woods.

Christchurch

We must take a stand against the far right and white supremacists. 
We have to catch that stinking spirit of fascism that slipped out of the bottle in recent years.
It has been put there after the Holocaust. When leaders had decency.
NEVER EVER AGAIN.
My condolences to the families of the 50 dead.
Jacinda Ardern shows us as a head of state how to behave as a human being.

Happy Women's Day

Greetings to all of you brave women around the world!
I never thought hard achieved women's rights would be in danger in old democracies. 
My Grandmothers are turning in their graves.
Sisters lets keep on fighting.

Vatican

I think the UN must take action and bring this case to the International Criminal Court in The Hague.

And all of you schoolchildren too - FridaysForFuture!
Get the panic adults!

variations oyster





Oysters are soooo beautiful! They don´t live in the Baltic Sea, so I asked a restaurant to do me the favor of collecting some.

first clean up this year







The new year started with storm and flooding and some damages. So of course I went to the beach equipped with bags and did some plastic picking. There are more and more empty doggy-poo-bags to be found on the beach - and that is really perverse! The foam is from agricultural waste. The amount of trash is half an hour walk. So happy new year!
