Party for the Animals leads protests at Eindhoven Airport

Twenty members of the political group Party for the Animals (Partij voor de Dieren or PvdD in Dutch) led a protest at Eindhoven Airport yesterday.

They want to see a reduction in the airport’s size and services. Marco van der Wel, member of the North Brabant Provincial Government, and Lammert van Raan, member of the Second Chamber in the Dutch Government’s House of Representatives, were also in attendance.

The Party for the Animals believes that, so far, the Provincial Government has failed to take sufficient measures to reduce the emission of greenhouse gases at Eindhoven Airport. Scheduling fewer flies is one of the best ways to achieve this, they say. They also say that a smaller airport would benefit the health and quality of life of residents living close to the airport.

The party’s protest was unannounced. Members briefly talked to travellers at the airport.
