POTSDAM (ALEMANIA), Nov. 26. (DAP/EP) -
The Prime Minister of the state of Brandenburg, Dietmar Woidke, has called on the national authorities not to "trivialize" protests by environmental activists such as the one last Thursday, when members of the Last Generation temporarily blocked the Berlin-Brandenburg Willy Brandt airport. .
"We must not trivialize this type of incident", Prime Minister Woidke said this Saturday in statements to the newspaper 'MAZ', where he asserted that the State "must act, and will act", although it is true that he has not added more details to the regard.
Environmental activists from the Last Generation organization temporarily blocked the Berlin-Brandenburg Willy Brandt airport, the main airfield south of the German capital, located in the state of Brandenburg, on Thursday.
In a post on its Twitter profile, the organization reported that several members of the group had entered the airfield's takeoff runway, although they had previously notified the Police that they were going to hold the protest.
Various environmental groups, including Última Generación, have staged numerous protests throughout Europe in recent weeks, including attacks against works of art and institutional buildings or roadblocks.
In fact, this wave in Germany is causing rejection by political groups and state governments, and even parties like The Greens in Brandenburg are distancing themselves from environmental protests, according to the aforementioned 'MAZ'.
The Brandenburg State Criminal Police Office is investigating six activists for, among other things, dangerous interference with air traffic, disturbance of public operations, trespassing and property damage.
