Police target climate activists across Germany

German police have conducted raids across the country, focusing on climate activists. The activists are part of a group called Last Generation. They’ve made headlines in recent months for blocking traffic, and are being accused of planning even greater disruptions. The police say the protesters are “a criminal group.” The World’s host Jason Margolis speaks to Georg Diez, editor-in-chief of The New Institute in Germany who has written extensively on climate protests there.
