Only after they crippled themselves, rendering their hands useless, they realized they had made a big mistake, and others refused to help them with the mess they had created. Climate activists just realize they had made a mistake while staging a protest and decided to glue their hands to the floor of a car exhibit.
About “cutting off your nose to spite your face,” Scientist Rebellion protesters appeared to have learned a hard lesson. They quickly come to the conclusion that they had made a big mistake by failing to consider how their own acts would place them at the mercy of others; after choosing to show their disdain in a way that actually crippled their ability to meet their own needs during their demonstration.
The climate activists with “Scientist Rebellion” bonded their hands to the display floor while protesting at a Volkswagen show in Wolfsburg, Germany. However, things just went from bad to worse when they asked Volkswagen for a little help. As the climate protesters got frustrated since they couldn’t use the restroom because their hands were tied, shortly after gluing their selves.
During their protest, Volkswagen refused to provide the activists with bowls to defecate and urinate in, much to their dismay. The climate protesters grew upset when the car company refused to assist them because they had glued their hands to the ground without considering what would happen when they wanted to use the restroom.
It was evident that at least one protester believed defecating and urinating into a bowl in a public place would suffice, even though many would scarcely consider this to be a “decent manner” of relieving oneself.
One of the protesters identified as Gianluca Grimalda tweeted, “[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.”
Grimalda went on to emphasize that “people in support” were free to leave the building, but they would not be permitted to return if they did, The Blaze claimed, as People questioned how Grimalda was able to tweet while his hand was glued to the floor.
“Just a clarification: people in support can get out of the building but then they couldn’t get back in. We can’t order our food, we must use the one provided by Wolkswagen [sic]. Lights off. Random unannounced checks by security guards with bright torches. Police just came in,” Gianluca Grimalda wrote in a follow-up tweet.
As seen in the video below, additional demonstrators gathered outside the center, raised a banner, broke windows, and painted the pavilion steps red, ostensibly to represent blood.
Instead, among other things, the demonstrators wanted the German government to cut the speed limit to 100 km/h (about 62 mph), as naturally with every protest comes demands, and the point of this one wasn’t to beg for bowls to contain their bodily excretions.
Climate change was causing floods and storms and predicted that some parts of the planet will likely become uninhabitable in the future as a result of global warming, one of the experts, Marta Matos claimed.
The protesters were insulted and made fun of on social media for not making arrangements to take care of their defecation needs, rather than having their complaints addressed and genuinely taken into account.
These activists clearly didn’t look far enough ahead to take care of their own basic necessities for someone who is supposed to be thinking for the future of us all. Make a good plan if you’re going to protest. Failure to do so could turn you into a laughingstock rather than assist you to win support for your cause.
