'Black Lives Matter' protesters blockade Heathrow and Birmingham airports and close roads across UK

Post by HoratioTarr on Fri Aug 05, 2016 3:24 pm

People are not happy. How would you feel if you missed the holiday flights you worked so hard for all year?


http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-3725050/Black-lives-matter-protesters-block-road-Heathrow-airport.html

Protesters from the Black Lives Matter group brought UK transport routes to a standstill this morning by laying down on motorways, blocking the entrances to airports and stopping public transport.
The demonstrators are part of the British wing of a campaign set up in the US to protest about black Americans being shot by police.

Activists in Britain today chained themselves together and stood across approach roads to Heathrow and Birmingham airports, while in the centre of Nottingham, four protesters lay across tram tracks.
The coordinated actions across the country caused chaos for hundreds of people trying to catch holiday flights and on their way to work.

In Birmingham, an ambulance was delayed as paramedics tried to get a patient to Heartlands Hospital along the blocked A45.

The British side of the movement, known as UK Black Lives Matter (UKBLM), describes itself as a network of anti-racist activists from across the country.

Maryam Ali, a founder of the Black Lives Matter chapter in London, is an 18-year-old sixth form student from West London who has never experienced police violence.

But speaking about her involvement to BBC News last month, she said: ‘Part of it is solidarity with the US. I have family in America, and I fear for their lives.

A bunch of idiots jumping on the bandwagon in an effort to appear 'edgy' whilst championing the underdog.

the point being didge....

the killings are "over there" not "over here" and the yanks aint going to take any notice of a bunch of lefty letteuces prancing about here...

its got more to do with "i'm bored, lets create mayhem" than with any real interest in the problem.

yeah...ok....

ever heard of the word futile?

do you think those southern cops are going to change their wasy cos a few lefty numptys over here decide to take their ire out on folks going on holiday and those requiring urgent medical assistance?

they would do better writing a well reasoned letter to the POTUS via the embassy....

of course that requires brains and thought...something we dont commonly associate with the brittish left

and of course they wont care about those who are off on holiday, since they probably cant afford one

so their simplistic thought process is

I'll ruin your holiday, cos I cant afford one and I dont think YOU should have one especially since american cops are killing american black folks and you you bastard are going on holiday.....

Start trouble... then when police attend... start pretending that you are the victim of the police action...

Amusing and basically yes, but still innocent people have been killed and shot by the Police

That does require attention and no doubt some of them will be unlawful



Anyway really have to go, but can you ask Irn why he brought up the edl and BNP about you when I never did.

When he does, I shall give him back his nose

Night victor




That is an outright lie but it's what you do. You introduced and made the connection between victor and the BNP and the EDL and here's what I said...,

"OK I'm saying that to Victor as well although I don't see that he is in anyway involved with the BNP or the EDL. Are you suggesting that he is?"

You didn't answer and now you are just twisting and lying to get out of the mess you are in.

At least my nose is where it should be and not up someone's arse like yours is.

Victor, sort this clown out with his twisting and lying because it reflects badly on you that you say nothing.

What does matter here is the hugely disruptive and criminal nature of these illegal 'protests'...

Hmmm.... Human beings being murdered v. two cycles through the stop light. Tough choice.

It's a question of priorities. Of course, it's difficult to sympathize in the UK. But as the individual in the OP said, it's in solidarity with her cousins in the US. It seems to resonate with someone over there.

In Birmingham, an ambulance was delayed as paramedics tried to get a patient to Heartlands Hospital along the blocked A45.

I think the protest that stopped people getting to the airports in the major cities, and like was mentioned, stopped ambulances and emergency vehicles getting through to people who needed help have done no good whatsoever.

I can understand the frustration of people who are in support of the "Black lives matter" organisation, and I understand why they want to protest and demonstrate......but not at the expense of the ordinary man in the street, which will include plenty black men, women and children, who would have been just as inconvenienced (at best) and put in danger (at worst) by their actions here.

what part of if the killings were happening here i would have a different view of it is too hard for you to grasp

what YOU (or at least your fellow citizens) get up to "over there" is PURELY a matter for YOUR people to deal with.

you are a damnable hypocrite you want american isolationalism you want no part of the mid east "problem"

yet you cry when I want no part of american misbehaviour

No... the choice for these idiots was to either stage some legal and organised protests... or to do illegal and criminal protests that just disrupted many other people and cost a lot of time and money of our police who would have been otherwise engaged in fighting serious crime...
