Activists in Germany stormed Berlin’s Brandenburg Airport on Thursday and stuck to the tarmac to protest government inaction on climate change.
The activists were members of climate activist group Letzte Generation and said the stunt was staged to protest greenhouse gas emissions caused by air travel.
“Affluent one percent of the population is responsible for roughly half of aviation-related greenhouse gas emissions,” Last Generation said in a public statement.

Approximately 13 flights were forced to divert or reroute.
