Both groups are on the same side, targeting global trade and the general public.
No, they are not. Government demands Growth. It's sponsors demand Growth. If we do not have Growth, especially at the leverage levels we have now, the entire global finance system will blow up. With the usual 1920's fallout, maybe even some literal fallout since abandoned nuclear facilites does not age well.
Governments may have restricted things along the lines of what some climate activists wants, but, governments also compensated quite adequately for the lost demand to keep Growth going, despite the Corona restrictions.
Climate activists are Anti-growth. The current model of infinite exponential growth and it's sidekick of infinite consumption of ressources based on a fixed volume planet will of course collapse in a dire way but that happens Later.
When people are given several bad options they will usually pick the one that is less immediately bad, therefore, government naturally sees anti-growth activites, especially sucessfull ones, as being Worse than terrorism (After all, there is Growth potential in protecting us against terrorism, meaning that terror is aligned with the Growth objective).
