German climate activists are trying to block access to the country’s three largest airports


On Wednesday, climate activists blocked roads leading to Germany’s three biggest airports, sticking to the ground before police arrived.

Members of the Uprising of the Last Generation group have said they want to disrupt cargo and passenger traffic at airports in Frankfurt, Munich and Berlin.

The group demanded that the government take action to end food waste. He argues that throwing away large amounts of usable food contributes to hunger and climate change.

Past protests involving the blocking of roads and ports have drawn criticism from officials across the political spectrum.

The blockages recall last year’s protests by climate action group Insulate Britain, which clogged many motorways and main roads in the UK.

Activists demanded that the government put an end to food waste as they blocked roads leading to one of Germany’s biggest airports in Munich, Germany, on February 23, 2022.
