Thursday’s disruption of air traffic at Hamburg and Duesseldorf airports serves as yet another example of the troubling trend of whacked-out environmental activists putting their own agenda before public safety.
Letzte Generation, an activist organization, employed a concrete and epoxy resin mixture to glue their hands to asphalt, effectively blocking runways and leaving thousands of passengers facing flight delays and cancelations.
This irresponsible behavior not only inconveniences passengers but also jeopardizes the safety of those aboard aircraft trying to take off or land.
Thousands were left stranded at airports due to this stunt, with no way home other than waiting out what could have been a long delay or paying exorbitant fees for new tickets.
Some passengers who had paid for cancellable tickets were unable to get refunds because airlines could not guarantee they would arrive at their destination on time – something which carries a hefty financial burden on many travelers.
According to Economic Times:
In a bold and daring act of protest, members of the “Last Generation” climate activist group in Hamburg and Düsseldorf took their fight against climate change to new heights, causing significant disruptions to flight operations by occupying airport runways.
Inspired by renowned climate activist Greta Thunberg, who gained global attention for her impassioned speech at the United Nations, the “Last Generation” activists have escalated their tactics. Taking civil disobedience to extreme levels, they affixed their hands firmly to the runways using a mixture of concrete and epoxy resin, a construction-grade substance known to harden over time.
The internet could not wait to crush this goofball:

Here’s the translation from the German account where it was posted. “Imagine you fulfill your childhood dream and become a firefighter and in the end you have to scrape such unemployed wimps off the street.”
