‘Black Lives Matter’ protesters shut down London airport

dfdfadfdaA group of Black Lives Matter activists whose protest temporarily shut down a London airport Tuesday have been arrested and removed from the runway, police said.

Flights were suspended at London City Airport after nine protesters locked themselves together on the runway and erected a tripod, London’s Metropolitan Police said in a statement.

Black Lives Matter UK, a network of anti-racism activists, said in a statement that the action was taken to protest Britain’s “environmental impact on the lives of black people locally and globally.”
