Two climate activists hurled mashed potatoes at a multi-million dollar Monet painting in Germany on Sunday.

The activist pair are a part of Letzte Generation, which means “last generation,” showed up at the Museum Barberini in Potsdam with mashed potatoes and chucked the mash at “Les Meules,” a 130-year-old painting. The pair then glued themselves to the wall and went on a rant.

“People are starving, people are freezing, people are dying. We are in a climate catastrophe,” Mirjam Herrmann screamed as she glued her hand to the wall, according to the New York Post, which cited Der Tagesspeigel.

“Science says we won’t be able to feed our families by 2050,” she continued, according to the report. “This painting will be worth nothing if we have to fight over food.”

Letze Generation said “if it takes a painting – with #MashedPotatoes or #TomatoSoup thrown at it – to make society remember that the fossil fuel course is killing us all: Then we’ll give you #MashedPotatoes on a painting!” (RELATED: RUCKER: Climate Extremism Is Making America Mentally Ill.

The incident unfolded just days after other so-called activists threw Heinz tomato soup on Van Gogh’s “Sunflowers” at the National Gallery in London before gluing themselves to the frame.

The National Gallery said the painting was unharmed.
