Climate Change Activists Paralyze Berlin Airport

Climate change activists temporarily paralyzed the Berlin Brandenburg Airport on Thursday, forcing the closure of two runways and the diversion of several flights.

The group Letzte Generation, or Last Generation, claimed responsibility. On its Twitter site, it posted a tweet with pictures showing an activist holding a banner while glued to the asphalt on a runway. Another photo showed an activist riding a bicycle along a shunting area, and a third showed two activists glued to a runway holding a banner.

“Supporters of the last generation are currently blocking the runway of BER,” read the tweet, translated into English, noting the acronym for the airport. “Some are glued to the asphalt, others ride their bikes across the shunting area, bringing air traffic to a standstill. Before entering BER, they informed the police.”
