On Tuesday, the child puppet of the climate activist movement Greta Thunberg was reportedly ‘detained’ at a protest in Germany. Video of the detainment went viral, showing Thunberg being carried away from the protest site by police officers in riot gear.
The following day, Thunberg tweeted about the incident, saying, “Yesterday I was part of a group that peacefully protested the expansion of a coal mine in Germany. We were kettled by police and then detained but were let go later that evening. Climate protection is not a crime.”

However, additional footage from the incident has now been released, showing that the entire scene was staged.
In the video that Thunberg and her team wanted everyone to see, the poster child for climate activism was being held by her arms by two officers while a third carried her feet. Thunberg had a stern look on her face and one of the officers tried to push away a camera that was being pointed at him. Chanting from the other protestors is heard in the background.
In the newly released videos, Thunberg and the officers are shown staging the entire thing. In one of the videos, the officers have Thunberg by her arms and are waiting to be told to move. Thunberg and her team are laughing and smiling as they wait for the ‘action’ call from the directors.
After they get the perfect photo op, they get additional footage of Thunberg being walked away by the officers.
The first video, what mainstream media wanted you to see, the second, lights, camera, action. The staged arrest of @GretaThunberg
This arrest is as fake as man made climate change. https://t.co/Fg9gFRd6B4 pic.twitter.com/ROZ01SZ6cy

Author Justin Hart tweeted another video from the “detainment,” with the caption, “Greta being arrested. Take 2!”
The video shows Thunberg sitting on the ground while two officers stand behind her. As her team laughs, they wait for the ‘action’ signal and the officers pick her up and pretend to walk her away as someone films.
After they get their shot, the officers let her go and walk away.

Brigitte Gabriel, a conservative author, slammed Thunberg for the staged videos, saying, “Everything Greta Thunberg does is staged. She’s the least substantive person alive today. All fake outrage, no real solutions or results. A completely irrelevant person.”
