Entertainment Volkswagen: Criminal Approval by Greenpeace Action in Emden
The False Hope of the Progressive-Prosecutor Movement
Well-intentioned reformers can’t fix the criminal legal system. They have to start relinquishing power.But progressive prosecutors’ approach won’t bring about meaningful change. The progressive-prosecutor movement acknowledges (as research has shown) that prosecutors’ “breathtaking” power is a major source of America’s criminal-justice problems. It asks its adherents to use that power for good, and trusts them to do so. But true reform won’t come from using that power for good; instead, prosecutors will need to have less of it in the first place.
about one month after the Greenpeace campaign against Volkswagen in the Emder Hafen, the carmaker has filed a criminal application.
"We do not tolerate laws," said a VW spokeswoman in Emden on Wednesday and confirmed a report of the "East Friesen-Zeitung". Volkswagen had previously announced to examine legal possibilities against the Greenpeace action. But the spokeswoman stressed that VW continues to be interested in a dialogue with the environmental protection organization.
Europe tools up against US and Asia as a car battery force
As demand for electric cars grows, giant battery factories are being built across Europe.The project will be a gigafactory, a term coined by Tesla founder Elon Musk to describe his first high-volume plant for producing lithium-ion electric battery cells, deep in the Nevada desert.
Public Prosecutor's Office and police determine against about a dozen activists because of the reproach of the trial break and the particularly severe theft.
The activists were climbed at the end of May on a fence on a loading area in the Emder Hafen and had there on unmatched cars, which were ready for overseas shipment, the ignition key. Shortly thereafter, the organization brought the keys to a glacier at the Zugspitze in Bavaria. The environmental protection organization criticized that Volkswagen turns too slowly to the electromobility. She had chosen the snow truck glacier because it was particularly affected by climate change.
In recent weeks, there were repeatedly actions by Greenpeace against Volkswagen. At the beginning of June, demonstrators invaded a construction site as well as on the site at the Group's own power plant of the headquarters in Wolfsburg. Last week, a Greenpeace campaign directed against VW failed at the first European Championship game of the German Football National Team in Munich. A 38-year-old man from Pforzheim in Baden-Württemberg was embraced at the playing field shortly before the kick-off of the game between Germany and France and had injured two men in the landing approach, which came to the hospital.

Volkswagen said Sunday it plans to stop producing cars with internal combustion engines in Europe for its eponymous flagship brand between 2033 and 2035, as the Germany auto giant accelerates its drive towards electric vehicles. "In Europe, we will leave the combustion engine vehicle market between 2033 and 2035," he said in a interview published online Sunday. He added that the change will take place "a little later in the United States and China. In South America and Africa, due to the lack of political framework conditions and infrastructure, it will take a little longer.
