Could it be they're trolling.

Migrants drowning in the Mediteranean because they are fleeing climate change?

Nothing to do with all those wars and dictatorships then.

Really?
Perhaps they are not black enough for BLM´s

Naaa, they were just being arseholes.
And the police took 6 hours to get them off the runway. Unless they had superglued themselves to the tarmac the police must have been exercising a great deal of restraint. No doubt they will complain about some abuse or other.

Re: Protesters block London City airport

Some highlights of the day:

Angry passenger: Black Lives Matter protesters can 'f**k off"

Has Black Lives Matter been hijacked by white people?

And of course the day wouldn't be complete without some peak Grauniad:

Climate change is a racist crisis: that’s why Black Lives Matter closed an airport

so they were expecting the police wouldn't arrest them?

I guess that's what comes of believing your own propganda.

I don't feel any compassion for these people, regardless of who thay are and what they believe, and sincerely hope to full force of the law is thrown at them for whatever they can be deemed guilty of.

I worked in the travel industry for over a decade and have precious little, if any, sympathy for protesters that interfere with transport systems. Strikes by workers in this industry are announced in advance. Actions such as yesterday, have an impact on the lives of thousands of people, and very rarely in a positive manner.

In an industry where the No.1 adversary in Mother Nature and the No.2 concern is security, numpties like this bunch will be getting a big eff you from the thousands of people that they've affected, and the industry as a whole.

Re: Protesters block London City airport

For all I care, they should have taken their protest right to the source, namely in front or behind a set of roaring Pratt & Whitneys. I wonder if they ever thought about the direct impact restricted air travel would have on touristy places in predominately black countries?

Or what impact it has on the health tourists from black countries.

Re: Protesters block London City airport

I guess that in future white people will be prevented from taking white people through the security checks at airports unless they're vacuum packed in a see through bag clearly identifying them as potential "Black Lives Matter" protestors?
