An interesting protest

From Tim Blair:

Nine Black Lives Matter UK activists have been removed from the runway at London City airport after chaining themselves together in a six-hour protest that caused severe travel disruption …

Black Lives Matter UK said the protest aimed to highlight the environmental impact of air travel on the lives of black people locally and globally. It posted footage of protesters lying on the runway after chaining themselves together and unfurling banners shortly after dawn …

All the protesters who had chained themselves together on the runway were white.

Black Lives Matter UK said the reason for the protest was that climate change was a “racist crisis”.

I’m not sure what amuses me more – calling climate change a racist crisis, or the fact none of the Black Lives Matter protesters were black.
