ECO-FEALOTS who taped themselves to the floor of a Volkswagen dealership moaned that they couldn’t go to the bathroom or get food after staff went home.
Undeterred, the employees in the showroom in Germany locked the doors at the end of the day, switched off the lights and turned down the heating.
But the group of nine activists from the group “Scientist Rebel” complained that they were left in the dark during the demonstration.
They had stormed the showroom in Wolfsburg in protest against Volkswagen, the world’s second largest car manufacturer.
On Wednesday, the eco-idiots taped their hands to the floor of the Porsche pavilion in the group’s Autostadt.
But they were upset when staff refused to offer them a bin to relieve themselves in while they dropped the temperature.
And although some protesters were on hunger strike, others were feverishly unhappy with the lack of food choices.
Scientist Rebel frontman Gianluca Grimalda explained the conditions the group – in white lab coats – were facing in a Twitter thread.
He wrote: “@VW told us they support our right to protest, but they refused our request to provide us with a bowl to urinate and void properly while we glued and turned off the heating.
“We cannot order our food, we have to use the one provided by Volkswagen. Light off.
“Quoteless unannounced checks by security forces with bright flares.”
Activists staged the bold sit-in in hopes of encouraging the government and big companies to decarbonize Germany’s transport sector.
They want leading conglomerate VW to take the fight to pollution.
Protester Gianluca later told his social media followers that he was forced to leave the protest due to a medical problem with his hand.
He says his hands were swollen after being taped to the floor for 24 hours before doctors warned he could have “life-threatening blood clots”.
The scientist was taken to the hospital, where he continued his hunger strike in support of the demonstration.
Images of the VW incident shared online showed six of the protesters pinned to the ground in front of three Porsches.
A crowd of scientists had reportedly gathered in front of the building to support the stupid demonstration.
Volkswagen has vowed to help shape a greener future by taking a “holistic approach” and ramping up production of its electric cars.
The company also wants to reduce “unavoidable emissions” generated during the production phase and when their cars hit the streets.
