Black Lives Matter Protestors Blocks Route To Major UK Airport… STUPIDITY TO A WHOLE NEW LEVEL

Black Lives Matter protestors have caused traffic chaos for thousands of holidaymakers, by blocking roads to the UK’s busiest airports.

 As part of a ‘national shutdown’ this morning, demonstrators held banners and laid on roads heading to Heathrow Airport, while others blocked cars arriving at Birmingham Airport and the tram system in Nottingham, the BBC reports.

Several pictures have emerged on Twitter of protestors lying in a row across the road, with cars tailed back for miles at the major UK terminals.

Video footage shows police officers crouching down to chat to the protestors, to reason with them, while chants of ‘black lives matter’ ring out.

 

A Heathrow spokesman said:

Heathrow supports the right to peaceful protest within the law, but the safety and security of our passengers, aircraft and colleagues, together with the smooth running of the operation, is paramount. We are sorry to those passengers whose journeys are being disrupted and we are working with the authorities to resolve the issue.
