Watch: Activists cemented their hands to the tarmac, now they may lose them (UPDATED)
Update: Peep the Community Notes on the tweet. "The glue can be removed and no "concrete' is involved. German sources have interview from similar protests." It's still funny though.
I have to hand it to European protesters. They go pretty hard in the paint. When American leftists say they are gluing themselves to something, they always have an out. Eco whackadoodles in Germany mix concrete with resin to show you how serious they are when they glue their hands to the tarmac. They are THAT concerned about losing their planet! Instead, they may only lose their hands.
Stop laughing. It's not funny. Stop it.
They are from a club called "Last Generation." They staged a protest at Hamburg Airport leaving flight operations in disarray... for only a few hours. Then the flights continued to stomp their carbon footprint all over the friendly skies as if nothing happened.
The protest was this Last Generation's way to speak out about the "lack of planning and disregard for laws in addressing the climate crisis." Too many people are flying these days and LG demands concrete plans to achieve the required emission reduction targets and to phase out fossil fuels by 2030. To symbolize their concrete plans, they... concreted their hands to streets, pavement, and runways.
What did I tell you about laughing? Stop it!
I don't speak German, so please allow there's some truthiness lost in translation. Feel free to call this entire post "for entertainment purposes only" if you like. I for one am very entertained by all of it.
I wish I did speak German because I would love to know the thought process behind all of this. Did they see the guy have his hand ripped off of a French street and think "What a pussy?" Was priceless artwork too bougie for them? Did they not read the directions for the quick pour resin? In America, it's in bold letters to not let it touch your skin.
And let's say they got their wish. The German government showed up, pledged to change their ways, and even agreed to eliminate all fossil fuels one years earlier in 2029. How did these ridiculous people think they were going to go get their hands out of the street?
