In order to support their demands that fossil fuel consumption end by 2030, climate activists painted the Brandenburg Gate’s iconic columns in orange and yellow on Sunday.Berlin police posted on X, formerly known as Twitter, that “members of the so-called ‘Last Generation’ sprayed the columns on the east side of the Brandenburg Gate with orange paint during the morning.”It was noted that when police spotted a hydraulic lift being used at the entrance, they prevented the demonstrators from ascending the iconic structure. All 14 demonstrators present were detained, and a probe into possible property damage was started.
Letzte Generation, based in Germany, is a member of the European A22 network that also includes Just Stop Oil, based in Britain, which recently made news in Germany with hundreds of blockages created by protesters who glued themselves to the pavement.Germany’s federal states launched a crackdown on law enforcement in response to the most recent action.Thousands of climate protesters, many of them young people, took to the streets on Friday in Berlin and other German cities to urge Scholz’s administration to do more to advance the nation’s climate goals.
