Brandenburg Gate: Activists saw off the top of the Christmas tree
The climate activists of the last generation have once again ensured a media-effective appearance in the middle of the capital.
Climate activists from the Last Generation group have the top of the Christmas tree in front of the Berlin Brandenburg Gate sawed off. On a lifting platform, two people rolled out a banner on Pariser Platz in Berlin-Mitte that said “This is just the top 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.
