Davos: Climate activists block private jet airport

STORY: As part of their "Make Them Pay" campaign, around 15 members of the “Debt For Climate” movement suspended themselves from a makeshift wooden pole structure and used barrels to block the entrance to the arrivals hall of the private St. Gallen-Altenrhein airport in Switzerland.

They also stuck posters on exterior of the terminal building which read "Davos Stop Funding Climate Chaos" and "Davos Billionaires Party while the World Burns".

Major energy firms including BP, Chevron and Saudi Aramco are among the 1,500 business leaders gathering for the annual meeting in the Swiss resort, where global threats including climate change are on the agenda.
