On Christmas Eve, climate activists want to board a TV service in Stuttgart. But the police got wind of the matter. The event will then be brought forward. The protest action fails.
According to the police, climate activists from the Last Generation group failed on Christmas Eve in Stuttgart in their attempt to "media-effectively" disrupt the planned live broadcast of a Christmas service on television. According to a statement from the police headquarters in Stuttgart, the planned protest action was already known in advance. The evangelical vespers in the Church of the Resurrection in the district of Möhringen was therefore already recorded on Friday and broadcast on ARD television with a time delay.
The climate activists of the last generation have been making headlines for months - for example by throwing mashed potatoes or tomato soup at works of art or taped demonstrators to freeways, crossroads or airport runways. The actions repeatedly encounter criticism and resentment.
Federal Minister of Justice Marco Buschmann recently warned the activists against high claims for damages as a result of their actions. "Anyone who blocks airports must know that they are causing considerable economic damage," the FDP politician told the editorial network Germany last week. "It's a very large sum of money." He warned the activists: "If the injured party claims the damage against the polluters, then they may have to pay for this damage for the rest of their lives."
