Protest #5 on Saturday, 2019-04-06, Forumtorget, Uppsala

Today I protested against climate breakdown between 13 and 15 pm at Forumtorget, Uppsala, Sweden. Again I did not have to share the honor of today’s protest with other protesters (but I am happy to do so :-)). This time I not only showed a protest poster, but also distributed self-designed “Bend the carbon curve!”…

Protest chants

Since I am rather new to protest in public, and sometimes I feel rather lame just holding up my protest poster I have collected and made up some chants which one sing and shout (preferably with a loudspeaker ;-)) [more to come]: English “The classic”: Call: What do we want? Reply: Save the climate! Call:…

Protest #3 on Saturday, 2019-03-23, Forumtorget, Uppsala

I protested against climate breakdown for the third time on Saturday, 13-15pm, 2019-03-23, at Forumtorget, Uppsala. Although I have gotten more and more Facebook likes, I was protesting on my own. The pedestrian zone was very populated so I got a lot of exposure, but there were few interactions, since I assume people just preferred…

How to create a protest banner!

I recently designed a professional protest banner to support public protest by creating more attention and to make my key message more visible.

“We will STOP you!” – An adaptation of Queen’s “We will rock you!” to support public protests against the fossil-fuel industry

An adaptation of Brian May’s rock anthem “We will rock you!” from Queen’s album “News of the World” (1977)  to support school kids striking against climate change, in general, or the fossil-fuel industry, in particular (original in bold vs modified italics) (Sorry, Freddie!). I wonder whether these lyrics with the famous “stomp-stomp-clap” would work at…

Download audio files to support public protests!

I am making the audio files below available which I find useful to support protests by playing the audio files to the public, eg playing the audio tracks from a smartphone, SD card, etc using a megaphone. (Note: I am using this megaphone, which I am happy with so far [PEARL, Germany] [AMAZON, Germany]. From…

Don’t mention the emergency? [BOOKLET + FLYER]

I just came across the following 24-page brochure which I found excellent in terms of condensing current science regarding the climate crisis into messages and actions, while firmly based on  psychology (esp. social, behavioral and clinical psychology) with statements well-referenced in the (scientific) literature.
