Gregor Gysi hands one to the prosecutor sitting next to him, his pack empties rapidly, the judge is happy to help and hands a new pack of “Tempo” down to the dock. There sits, pale, thin, serious and repeatedly fighting back tears: Lukas P., 24 years old, student of mechanical engineering at the Technical University of Munich, self-proclaimed climate protector of the “last generation”.
