The Gateway Pundit reported on the rise in vandalism and public tantrums from deranged climate activists across Europe.
In October 2022, two disturbed women from the militant group Just Stop Oil tossed tomato soup on Vincent van Gogh’s “Sunflowers” exhibited at the National Gallery in London. Fortunately, the painting was protected by museum glass.
In June 2022, another pair of Just Stop Oil stuck to the frame of another painting by Vincent Van Gogh.
In France, a 36-year-old man dressed as an old lady tried to break the glass protecting the famous mona-lisa paint before laying a cake on its surface.
Claude Monet’s Haystacks, on display at the Potsdam Barberini Museum in Germany, have been attacked by an alliance of German and Austrian activists, Letzte Generation (Last Generation).
On Saturday, Letzte Generation splashed a dark liquid on an artwork near the German parliament building. The artwork, “Grundgesetz 49”, was created by Israeli artist Dani Karavan and is etched with key elements of the country’s constitution. The dark liquid was supposed to symbolically “dip the coin in oil”.

“When ‘climate activists’ commit their crimes, the police are always there. They don’t intervene, it looks more like they are security preventing anyone from intervening. Orchestrated by the state, all that” (Google Translate)
Wenn “Klimaaktivisten” ihre Straftaten begehen, steht die Polizei immer nur daneben. Sie greift nicht ein, es sieht eher so aus, als wären sie die Security, die verhindert, dass jemand anderes eingreift. Staatlich orchestrated, diese ganze #LetzteGeneration-To show? 🤔#Grundgesetz49 pic.twitter.com/BlNyLbFRj9

Parliament President Bärbel Bas said she was appalled by the action and “didn’t understand it”. She said Israeli artist Dani Karavan’s work, titled “Grundgesetz 49″ after the German name of the post-World War II constitution and the year it was written, is a reminder of respect and protection of rights such as freedom of speech and assembly.”
These are the fundamental rights on which the Last Generation protesters themselves base the justification for their actions,” Bas said in a statement. “I can only hope that the glass plates of the artwork have not been permanently damaged.”
