Activists from Ultima Generazione protested this morning in Catania. Some of them vandalized the Malavoglia fountain with red paint, dirtying the water, and blocking traffic near the courthouse. They then posted a video on their official social media channels. The activists’ goal is to draw attention to the ongoing climate crisis. They are calling for money to be invested in citizens rather than weapons. They chose to protest near the Catania courthouse to protest a recent court ruling that did not uphold the detention of some migrants. The activists point to the climate crisis as exacerbating migration due to desertification.
