As the G20 kicks off, creative protest action is already underway – Hamburg’s current “wave of protest” has environmental topics at its core. This carries forward a long tradition in the anti-globalization movement.Climate change is at the top of the agenda for the G20 in Hamburg – and not just at the summit.
Also civil society and activist groups have been shining a light on environmental issues – sometimes quite literally.
Be it a light installation or a hot-air balloon, the folks at Greenpeace are up to their old antics – bringing attention to environmental topics in sometime provocative ways.
WWF is not to be left out – on the facade of electricity utility Lichtblick in Hamburg was the clear message: “The climate crisis hurts us all. Act on Paris now!”
The action was undertaken in cooperation with the utility.
And of course, the street party continues – with a message, of course. In a performance of the collective “1000 Gestalten” (a thousand figures), participants “freed” themselves from a grey crust. To come out in green – and a plethora of other colors, too.
