Christmas is, for many, the time to show their ugly side, opinionated, arrogant, unyielding. Also left and progressive circles have the opportunity this year not be wasted. You had ignored the rantings of the Nazi uncle at Christmas dinner with a lump in my throat, it was said, at the latest, when you look on Twitter: fire at will!

The occasion: The Crowdfunding of the Berlin branch of Fridays for the Future, and the condom manufacturer unicorn for a citizens ' Assembly in Berlin's Olympic stadium had on Christmas eve a success. 1.8 million euros, came together at the last minute, so in June 2020 up to 90,000 people in parallel via petitions, will be able to vote.

The reactions to it were devastating: the end of democracy is near, sold to a Hipster Start-up, abused for an Event against a Nazi backdrop. A Festival of privileged White, the money wasting and participation believe. The Nazi uncle is pleased with the vehemence with the one on the Left is the project combat. Without shades, without the attempt – also eligible – to formulate criticism in a spirit of solidarity, without the idea of self with meaningful, Yes, radical petitions to bring in. There is nothing worse to negotiate than concrete demands for more climate protection, and democracy is under great attention.

Just Fridays for the Future has set the duration of the demos, because, politically, but nothing moved; this is the other action you are wasting forms. The right to petition the festival opened, however, the opportunity to continue to speak publicly on more than AfD topics. So far 25,000 of donors to contribute; for the Left this could be a Chance. Many more have paid, so that people can have without the money part. And despite the lurid communications with the Organisers, you will know that petitions to replace political work. A damage is to be expected, neither for democracy nor for social movements. Other than the lack of (critical) solidarity.
