Activists in Germany broke into Berlin Brandenburg Airport on Thursday and glued themselves to the tarmac in protest at the government’s lack of action on climate change.
The activists were members of the climate activism group Letzte Generation (Last Generation) and stated that the stunt was staged in protest of greenhouse gas emissions from air travel.
“One affluent percent of the population is responsible for about half of the greenhouse gas emissions caused by flights,” Last Generation said in a public statement.

About 13 flights had to divert course or change their route.
