The climate activists of the Last Generation group made headlines again with a peaceful protest: They sawed off the top of the Christmas tree in front of the Brandenburg Gate.
Berlin - Climate activists from the Last Generation group sawed off the top of the Christmas tree in front of the Brandenburg Gate in Berlin.
On a lifting platform, two people rolled out a banner on Pariser Platz in Berlin-Mitte that said "This is just the tip of the Christmas tree," a police spokeswoman said.
Then they drove to the top of the 15 meter high Nordmann fir tree with the lifting platform during the protest action on Wednesday morning.
They cut off the tip with a hand saw, as the climate activists from the Last Generation group themselves announced.
"So far in Germany we have only seen the tip of the underlying catastrophe," said an activist about the protest.
According to the police, they were on site.
Measures are now being taken, said the police spokeswoman, without giving any further details
