With tensions stoked by pulling out of the Paris Agreement in June, President Trump's arrival for the G20 summit in Hamburg, Germany on Thursday was marked with controversy and protest even before he stepped off the plane. The conference, attended by 19 countries and the EU, kicks off Friday, and tens of thousands of police are already patrolling the city.

Meanwhile, "most of the shops are closed already and even battened down the hatches," observed local resident Paola Cermak. "The first (mostly peaceful) protests already took place. Still Hamburg is bracing itself for an escalation of violence."

Von oben sieht die Welt ganz anders aus 🌍💚 Diesen Blick wollen wir den Vertretern der G20-Staaten für ihre Verhandlungen in Hamburg mitgeben: Weniger nationale Interessenpolitik und mehr globale Zusammenarbeit für den Schutz des Planeten und unsere gemeinsame Zukunft. Für diese Botschaft sind wir gestern mit einem Ballon auf der Hamburger Moorweide aufgestiegen. Wenn ihr mit uns im Ballon fahren wollt, findet ihr die ganze Geschichte auf Snapchat ➡ greenpeacede Der G20-Gipfel in Hamburg will „eine vernetzte Welt gestalten“. So das Motto. Das sollte auch jene Staaten einschließen, die besonders von Hochwassern, Dürren und anderen Folgen der Klimaerhitzung betroffen sind.
