Do these people even understand what they are protesting? Mass transit is suppose to be a 'greener' solution, as it takes hundreds, if not thousands of individual vehicles off the roads. If you're protesting inaction, why shut down what little action is being taken? If people can't rely on mass transit, wouldn't they be inclined to go back to driving their own cars. Maybe UK mass transit is like a luxury cruise, compared to driving yourself, free tea or warm beer (gross). My few experience here in America, were not very pleasant, doubt I'd get use to it, or ever enjoy such a thing. Seriously doubt the main polluters and policy makers us mass transit either, so what's the point? Wonder if they'll turn violent, and bust up some solar farms, because they aren't replacing coal burning generators fast enough...

No. Protesting is like a party. It is a party with their Comrades to celebrate their own Marxism. What point is being made is quite secondary, if there is one at all. We are approaching summer days now; protest season.

Quite right. Again, that's not the point. The point is to celebrate time with their Comrades.

Depends on where you are. In London, mass transit is actually a pretty good way to get around. Out north of London, however, it becomes more impractical and you see more cars.

America is uniquely unfit for mass transit for anything other than city transit, such as buses. The problem is that America is so spread out. That's why any long distance railroad can only operate as a subsidized operation and only on renting trackspace. It can't make enough money to support itself or even to build it's own track.

One form of mass transportation is successful on its own, and that's the airlines.

Within the cities, light rail generally needs to be subsidized to function at all, and buses are generally government owned and operated.

Here in Washington, we had one private ferry until a few years ago, but that is no longer in service. All ferries are now government owned and operated.

Possibly.
It's about the party and celebrating their mutual Marxism. It is not about any sense.

The plan to celebrate Easter weekend, at the busiest airport. Sounds like the police are ready to party as well. Should be an interesting holiday over there. I wonder how many paid-protesters are involved in these celebrations. I can't imagine so many people would turn out, for the tear gas, water cannons, and beatings. Guess the senseless vandalism and looting make it worthwhile.

Well, if they want to all get arrested for interfering with airport operations, let 'em.

Governments get serious about protecting their airports.

You should imagine it. The goal is to be beaten, tear-gassed and arrested on camera. The cameras, however, will not be running prior to that when the protesters menace and attack the cops.

A strategically edited video of all the "police brutality" and "unprovoked abuse of power" will be made available to the 5:00 news.

IB STILL hasn't explained what Planck's Law means. Just more hand waving that it applies to everything and more asserting that the greenhouse effect 'violates' it.- Ceist

I think picking a holiday weekend, specially a religious holiday was a bad choice to cripple an airport. People weren't happy over the Gatwick-drone shutdown a couple months ago, but most understood that it was to keep them safe, though probably over-reaction. I don't think too many of the passengers are going to be so understanding toward a group using them to get attention. A confrontation with police might not be their only concern. Seems likely there will be some level of violence there this weekend. The protesters aren't going to generate much sympathy or support with this stunt, likely the opposite.
