The action took place in the morning of Wednesday, November 21. Two activists from the Letzte Generation group (latest generation) rose to the top of the tree in question thanks to, reports the AFP, an elevating platform. The two women then beheaded the head of the tree: two meters for fifteen in total, relays the HuffPost . They also unrolled a banner where you could read: "It was only the point of the Christmas tree".
