During the top Bundesliga game between FC Bayern Munich and Borussia Mönchengladbach, activists stormed onto the field, apparently trying to chain themselves to the posts. Security forces were able to stop the people and, after a short break, took them away.

The picture direction from TV broadcaster Sky also reacted quickly. On TV you only saw how an activist tried to tie himself to the Gladbach goal. Bayern players, such as Thomas Müller or Marcel Sabitzer, tried to stop the activists.

At the same time, a woman tried to chain herself to Bayern keeper Manuel Neuer’s goal on the other side of the field. Security forces eventually took the two activists off the field.

In a press release, the “Last Generation” wrote that this happened “to make it clear that the impending climate collapse will not stop at the Germans’ favorite sport”.

According to the information, five people were involved, including three 20-year-olds. Sky commentator Wolff-Christoph Fuss had read the lettering on the clothing (“Stop the fossil madness”) during the incident.

This year, climate activists of the “last generation” have already blocked hundreds of streets nationwide. Last Thursday, activists glued themselves to a museum picture in the Gemäldegalerie in Berlin, and on Wednesday to the frame of a large painting in the Städel in Frankfurt.

On Tuesday there was a similar action in the Old Masters Picture Gallery in Dresden. The activists are demanding that Chancellor Olaf Scholz (SPD) and Economics Minister Robert Habeck (Greens) do more to expand renewable energies.

According to commentator Wolff-Christoph Fuss from the broadcaster Sky, the words “Stop the fossil madness” could be read on the clothing. Photos show that the words “Last generation” were printed on the T-shirts. The group has been making headlines for months with disruptive actions, especially in Berlin.
