Protestors acting for the Black Lives Matter UK campaign, and alleging that climate change threatens the life of people in Sub-Saharan Africa, have prompted a shut-down of London City Airport when they carried out protests on the airport’s runway.

The reasoning behind their protests is a bit vague, though it seems to centre around making a correlation between air travel and climate change and their claim that environmental inequality is inherently racist.

Police are investigating how protestors managed to access the airside section of the airport, with some speculation that they might have used a boat.

For the time being, LCY-bound flights are being diverted, but the airport hopes to resume normal service as soon as possible.
