Two members of the Last Generation climate activist group, glued themselves to a dinosaur display

The Natural History Museum in Berlin said criminal charges have been filed against two climate activists who glued themselves to a dinosaur display over the weekend.

To protest the German government’s climate policy, the two activists remained riveted to metal bars holding up the skeleton of a dinosaur.

The activists have been identified as Caris Connell, 34, and Solvig Schinkothe, 42, members of the Last Generation, which has been staging dramatic demonstrations to compel Germany to do more to curb the effects of climate change.

“Unlike the dinosaurs, we hold our fate in our own hands,» protester Caris Connell, 34, a member of the Last Generation, climate activists, said as museum visitors milled around the display. «Do we want to go extinct like the dinosaurs, or do we want to survive?”

The museum said in a statement that the demonstration was ended by police less than an hour after it began. The display incurred damage, it said without elaborating.

Members of the Last Generation have literally taken to the streets to create traffic blockades and on Oct. 23 two activists defaced the Claude Monet painting «Grainstacks» with mashed potatoes at the Museum Barberini in Potsdam before gluing themselves to the wall.

The organization said the protest was to force society to ask: «What is worth more, art of life?»
