Sahra Wagenknecht announces the withdrawal from the protest movement "stand up"
Berlin – The leader of the left Sahra Wagenknecht wants to withdraw from a media report from her leftist collection movement that started "getting up". "We need a realignment to get up," said Wagenknecht of the "Frankfurter Allgemeine Sonntagszeitung" ("FAS"). "Party politicians should recover, this also concerns myself: initially they were needed with their experience. But now it is right to renounce responsibility." Wagenknecht founded the movement together with her husband Oskar Lafontaine to reach the left-wing voters who have classical festivals have been dismissed.
"Get up" started at the beginning of September and today has about 170,000 supporters. Four weeks after its foundation, the movement had already reported about 100,000 supporters. Unlike political parties, you don't have to pay a membership fee and you can easily access the Internet.
Sahra Wagenknecht failed for two months due to an illness
Wagenknecht told FAS that the movement could "live better if given to the wearer on the basis anyway". The former leader of the left-wing party Lafontaine had stressed in the foundation of "getting up" that they had been surprised by the strong influx. In their own party, however, the two met with much rejection. Even the leaders of the SPD and the Greens reacted skeptically.
Wagenknecht has now declared to the newspaper that he will continue to support the movement, for example through public appearances. "But I also have to see what workload I can do. The fact of having been absent for two months because of the illness also has to do with the extreme stress of the last few years. That's where I have to find a new balance."

The left faction has also confessed to the wrong judgments. "The parts we wanted to tackle are walled up," he told FAS. For many of his requests there were no majorities in the Bundestag: out of this impasse she had wanted to go out with the collection movement. "But the leaders of the SPD party and of the left feel so at ease in the impasse that they have refused the possibility of" getting up "with its great response".
Lafontaine had said in February, almost six months after the official start of "getting up", that he could still "raise his breath". "We started very well. But now we are in level trouble, because there are organizational difficulties." The structures of the movement in countries, cities and communities could not be built "from one day to the other". "It takes time."
