Berlin climate activists stick to airport runway, disrupting air travel

German activists broke into Berlin Brandenburg Airport and glued themselves to the tarmac on Thursday to protest the government’s inaction on climate change.

The activists were members of the climate activism group Letzte Generation (Last Generation) and said the stunt was staged to protest greenhouse gas emissions caused by air travel.

“A well-off percent of the population is responsible for about half of the greenhouse gas emissions related to flights,” Last Generation said in a public statement.
