In Berlin, the "Last Generation" wanted to block a street.

However, the motorists simply drove on – despite the red traffic light.

The activists "Last Generation" are fighting for more climate protection all over Europe.

They often resort to rather unusual methods and don't stop at museum pieces.

Most of the time, however, the activists stick to the streets to express their protest.

However, drivers usually have little understanding for this and are increasingly defending themselves against the activists or simply driving on - as happened in Berlin.

There, the “Last Generation” wanted to block Tempelhofer Damm on January 12, as a video by the group on Twitter shows.

It shows how the activists want to use a red phase for the cars to sit on the road.

However, some of the motorists did not play along.

"Last generation" blocks the road: cars just keep driving

Instead of stopping, they drive towards the demonstrators and sometimes even past them, honking their horns.

Several vehicles use this method to get past the climate activists, who even try to get in the way of motorists.

Ultimately, however, they manage to block the road.

Apparently not for very long, because as

reports, the police were right there, so the activists couldn't get stuck.

However, it is not the first time that motorists have opposed the “last generation”.

Last year, for example, a man lost his composure and slapped one of the climate stickers in the face.

And a woman in Berlin freaked out because of the protests and fiddled with the activists' opinions.

"Last generation" blocks the road: Twitter users sympathize with drivers

However, they continue their protests and risk "health and penalties", as the group writes on Twitter.

The reason: "To resist the knowing destruction of the livelihoods of all people is the right thing to do now."

An opinion that only a few users share.

On the contrary, many sympathize with the drivers who hit the activists.

Including many politicians.

  • “Our goal must be to get as many people as possible enthusiastic about climate protection as quickly as possible.

    With your actions you achieve the opposite.”

  • "It's not peaceful, it's coercion."

  • "A roadblock is never peaceful."

  • "It's a STREET!!

    If you sit down there, expect to be hit.”

  • “You break the law, drivers break your bones.

    I would say fair deal!”

  • "People finally see that this form of protest has failed, you only attract more and more resentment to the entire climate movement.

    You harm your own cause!”

  • “Absolutely stupid actions like that.

    Can fully understand drivers driving through crowds.”

  • “People are fed up.

    You turn them against yourself.”
