Environmental activists took to the soggy streets of Bonn on Saturday, taking part in two demonstrations aimed at grabbing the attention of the COP23 climate conference attendees gathered in the western German city.
One demonstration, led by the group "No Climate Change," marched from Bonn's downtown area toward the site where the climate conference is taking place near the United Nations headquarters in Germany. Another protest took place around the city center.
Puppets representing Earth and the "bad ghosts of coal and nuclear energy" duked it out on the streets of Bonn, reported DW's Patrick Grosse.
In another nod to Carnival celebrations, large floats accompanied the activists, including a pirate ship afloat on a sea of nuclear waste.
On one float, a protester dressed as US President Donald Trump was driven through the streets by a fleet of polar bears in a Volkswagen convertible the German automaker has admitted to cheating on diesel emissions tests worldwide.
A tipped-over, smoking model of the Statue of Liberty was dragged behind the troupe, reported DW's Louise Osborne.
Organizers had anticipated some 5,000 participants for the march on the climate conference, while another 3,000 were expected to take part in another demonstration downtown. By midday, Bonn police said that the demonstrations had drawn fewer people than expected. An estimated 2,000 people took part.

The Euro Commies love to march in the streets with big puppets and goofy chats.
The supposed issues may change (no nukes to end the war to “climate change”) but the demonstrations as are always the same.
And the goal - Communism - is always the same.
ROFLMBO. They're going to have to have a long and deep conversation with Mother Gaia on that one. She has been constantly changing the climate all on her own for many eons, and she hasn't stopped just because clever chimpanzees came along.
Okay, if I had seen that, I might have been driven to distraction or disruption. That's crossing a line.
Waitwaitwaitwait... I'm offended. I'M OFFENDED!!! The parade and events must all be cancelled at once!!! I have an Offended Card!!!
Are there any unpaid, true protesters any longer on the left? Is anything real on tgeir side?
Quote of the thread or possibly of the day. Love it! And going to steal it!
Damn, you're on a role! Where can I get my Offended Card? What a great sign that would be at an antifa protest. ANTIFA FACIST ACTIONS OFFEND ME! Think how long it would take those moronic commie students to figure out the irony. Plus, love your tagline.
I’ll start taking all the 21st Century protesters seriously when they start lighting themselves on fire ala Buddhist Monks...
