On the sidelines of the upcoming G7 summit in Elmau, there was a protest in Garmisch-Partenkirchen around 10 p.m.

The heads of the G7 heads of state and government were projected onto the large Olympic ski jump.

Below you can read: “Corona, climate, hunger – G7, can you make the jump?” The saying was also in English and French.

The campaign was organized by "One", a movement that, according to its own press release, "is committed to ending extreme poverty and avoidable diseases by 2030." However, it is questionable whether the projection is visible as far as Elmau.
