Climate activists felled a smaller tree in front of the Chancellery in Berlin on Tuesday morning. The police were on duty because of the activists at the government building, as a spokesman said. The protest group “Last Generation” wrote on Twitter about the action: “42 soccer fields of forest are silently cleared every minute, important carbon stores for our future. Business

The group “Last Generation” was formed after a climate hunger strike in Berlin and calls for rigorous measures for climate protection. Since the beginning of 2022, it has been blocking motorway exits and other roads in many cities, with Berlin being a focal point.

According to the latest information from the Senate, the Berlin public prosecutor’s office has so far applied for 511 penal orders against demonstrators and brought 7 charges. According to the police, it was still unclear how further investigations will be carried out after the action on Tuesday. First, the personal details were determined.
