Climate protesters who glued their hands to the floor of a Volkswagen exhibit in Wolfsburg, Germany, were upset that the car company refused to provide them with bowls to defecate and urinate into during their protest.
Protesters with “Scientist Rebellion” began the protest on Wednesday, but they didn’t plan for what would happen once they needed to use the bathroom.
“[Volkswagen] told us that they supported our right to protest, but they refused our request to provide us with a bowl to urinate and defecate in a decent manner while we are glued, and have turned off the heating. People in support can’t get out of the building,” tweeted one of the protesters identified as Gianluca Grimalda.
He went on to clarify that they were allowed to leave but would not be allowed to return if they did.
“We can’t order our food, we must use the one provided by Wolkswagen. Lights off. Random unannounced checks by security guards with bright torches. Police just came in,” he added in a second tweet.
Among their demands was the insistence that the German government lower the speed limit to 100 km per hour, or about 62 miles per hour.
Outside of the center. other protesters raised a banner after they threw red paint, apparently symbolizing blood on the steps of the pavilion.
They also vandalized the windows.
One of the scientists, identified as Marta Matos, claimed that climate change was leading to floods and storms and that some regions of the world would probably become uninhabitable in the years to come because of global warming.
It was unclear how Grimalda was able to tweet while his hand was glued to the floor.
