German activists broke into Berlin’s Brandenburg Airport on Thursday and took to the tarmac to protest the government’s inaction against climate change.

The activists, who are members of the climate activism group Let’s Te Generation (Last Generation), said the stunt was staged to protest the greenhouse gas emissions from air travel.

Last Generation said in an official statement that “the wealthy 1 percent of the population accounts for about half of flight-related greenhouse gas emissions.”
