Identitarians occupy Nord Stream Terminal
A spectacular action with a signal effect: a handful of activists from the Identitarians, including the Austrian spokesman for the movement, Martin Sellner, symbolically occupied the terminal of the Russian-German Baltic Sea pipeline Nord Stream 2 in Lubmin on Monday, thereby emphasizing the demand to open the pipeline.
A video published on Twitter shows Sellner in front of the terminal. Behind him are several people with a placard that reads “Turn open Nord Stream 2”. Sellner himself published the original video on his Telegram channel.
“We demand the immediate opening of Nord Stream 2 and a referendum, a referendum on the Federal Republic’s energy and sanctions policy,” Sellner said in the video. He also threatened to put the pipeline into operation himself. “If they don’t step on the gas, then we will step on the gas. We’re here today to turn on Nord Stream 2.” In the video, the activists can be seen armed with smoke flares and wearing masks. The police arrested several activists, but most were able to retreat to a forest area and escape the attack.
In an interview, Sellner emphasized that the action in Lubmin “occupied” an important topic in the public discussion: “We’ve done the groundwork, we occupied the area around Nord Stream 2 – in terms of content and literally.” That is decisive “that the action fulfills its true purpose. It should inspire our camp and mobilize it for the battles and challenges to come. There is no respite and no sleep. The hot autumn is here!” said Sellner, referring to the increasingly critical situation in Germany.
The German government has put the certification process for the Nord Stream 2 Baltic Sea pipeline on hold. In politics, too, the call for commissioning the energy lifeline is getting louder and louder.
