German officials have expressed their disappointment at activists’ “days of action” against Tesla Giga Berlin-Brandenburg. This was true for Federal Economics Minister Robert Habeck (Greens) and the East Brandenburg Chamber of Commerce and Industry (IHK), both of whom shared their thoughts with German media. 
In a comment to Funke media group (via rbb24), Minister Habeck noted that once the protesters attempted to break into Tesla Giga Berlin-Brandenburg’s premises, things were no longer reasonable. This was because in Grünheide, the border of the protest was the border fence of Tesla’s premises. “The protest ends there, the criminal liability begins,” the Minister said. 
Minister Habeck also criticized how the activists targeted Tesla due to the company’s production of electric cars. “No one can have an interest in Germany without automobile production. We are campaigning for the cars of the future to be produced here — and for jobs and added value to be kept here. And Tesla also builds cars like that,” Minister Habeck said.
