Radical climate protesters in Munich, Germany, who were blocking a street in an organized protest, were pulled forward by a car after refusing to move from oncoming traffic, according to a video posted by the environmental group on X.
A video clip posted on Monday showed a car refusing to stop amid protesters blocking the road.
When the demonstrators approached to block the car, it slowly moved forward.
Climate protesters were dragged hundreds of feet to the road by car.
“We are all part of the last generation that still has the opportunity to stop the complete ecological collapse of the Earth, regardless of whether we want to or not,” said Gilleste. “We are coming together and offering resolute, non-violent resistance to the fossil fuel madness happening in our present. We are the community’s will to survive! We still have two or three years before us to turn from the path of fossil fuel annihilation.”
The video was shared by climate activists of Letzte’s generation – the ‘last generation’ – who have staged protests, blocking major roads and highways, and even causing plane delays.
The demonstrators, dressed in orange vests, exhausted the public’s patience after repeated delays, some of which lasted for hours.
Activists used some of the adhesive resin which required emergency responders to remove the cement underneath to get their hands out of the way.
Such protests angered the public, especially the passengers. Some of those tense moments were videotaped.
In July, a woman in Germany grabbed a climate protester by the hair and pulled her to the side of the road.
The European media later dubbed the woman a “brutal blonde”.
The activist was slightly injured in the altercation.
Police said they are looking at videos and photos of the incident to determine whether criminal action is necessary against those who dragged protesters off the road.
They also said climate activists have been detained.
Around the same time, a 41-year-old truck driver in Germany got into a brutal confrontation with radical climate protesters, pulling them to the side of the road and later pulling one of the protesters forward with his car.
German Minister for Digital Affairs and Transport, Volker Wissing, said: “The latest generation is not climate-protective, they are involved in criminal activities.”
