Activists in Germany stormed the Berlin Brandenburg airport on Thursday and stuck to the runway in protest of government inaction on climate change.
The activists were members of the climate activism group Letzte Generation (Last Generation) and claimed the stunt was performed in protest of greenhouse gas emissions caused by air travel.
“The top one percent of the population is responsible for around half of the flight-related greenhouse gas emissions,” Last Generation said in a public statement.

An airport spokesman said the group, which included a 70-year-old man, entered the trespass through two separate points on the runway parameter.
Approximately 13 flights were forced to divert their course or change their route.
