A scandal broke out in the trial of climate activist Henning Jeschke.

The founding member of the group, Last Generation, jumped up in the middle of the hearing before the Tiergarten district court in Berlin and stuck himself to the judge's table.

“I've stuck myself.

I have to do it because we have to talk about a climate emergency," shouted the 23-year-old in room D107.

"I'm sorry.

I have to do it."

Jeschke filmed himself during the action.

The judge left the room and alerted the court officials.

These should detach the accused.

The audience had to leave the hall.

Finally, the table and Jeschke were carried out of the room into the waiting room because Jeschke had repeatedly interrupted the judge.

The process is about several actions of the "last generation" in the period from March to June 2022, in which Jeschke is said to have been involved.

The public prosecutor's office in Berlin accuses him of coercion, resistance to law enforcement officials and dangerous intervention in road traffic.

Punitive orders were issued, according to which the climate activist should pay a fine.

Because he objected, it came to trial.

This Thursday was a follow-up appointment.
