Activists cut off top of huge Christmas tree in climate protest in Berlin
Protest group Last Generation said two of its members used a hydraulic lift and a hand saw to cut two metres off the top of the 15-metre tree and hang up a banner.
The banner read: “This is only the tip of the Christmas tree.”
In a statement, the group said it wanted to highlight that Germany is so far only seeing the “tip” of the climate catastrophe happening around the world.
Leztze Generation is Germany’s version of Just Stop Oil – a climate group engaging in direct action. They have blocked roads and airport runways and attacked a Claude Monet painting (protected behind glass) with mashed potato.
