Activists from the Last Generation climate protection movement blocked streets in several German cities at the start of the week. There were actions in Berlin, Leipzig and Magdeburg, for example.

Several activists stuck to a motorway exit in the capital. In Hanover, a group blocked a roundabout. Two of the activists stuck to the asphalt, a police spokesman said. The disruptive actions caused traffic jams in some places.

Green parliamentary group leader Katharina Dröge expressed her incomprehension with regard to renewed road blockades. “What’s the message? What do they want to do?” She asked RTL/ntv “early start”. “Do they want to say to people, stop driving to work or don’t bring your children to school anymore – action and message don’t go together.”
