GERMAN authorities raided 15 properties across the country and seized assets in an investigation into the financing of protests by the Last Generation climate activist group, prosecutors said today.
Munich prosecutors said they were investigating seven people on suspicion of forming or supporting a criminal organisation.
They launched the inquiry following numerous criminal complaints they received since mid-2022.
Members of Last Generation have repeatedly blocked roads across Germany in an effort to press the government to take more drastic action against climate change.
In recent weeks, they have brought the traffic to a halt on an almost daily basis in Berlin, glueing themselves to busy intersections and highways.
Over the past year, they have also targeted various artworks and exhibits.
