Extinction Rebellion strike rush hour in Munich | Daily Mail Online
Extinction Rebellion today struck rush hour in Munich, bringing motorways to a standstill as they dangled from overpasses in protest against the International Motor Show (IAA). At least two autobahns were shut down as firefighters were called in to remove climate change protesters who were precariously hanging over the roads in harnesses.
Meanwhile, closer to the motorshow a group of Greenpeace activists waded into a pond and held up banners saying: ‘Stop driving climate change.’
Their protest comes as the world’s largest motor show got underway, with electric vehicles and the sustainable future of driving at the top of the agenda.
Volkswagen boss Herbert Diess, who was accosted by Greenpeace activists as he entered the venue on Sunday, is aiming to overtake Tesla as the world’s largest seller of electric vehicles by 2025.
