⛔ Groningen Airport Eelde must close! ⛔
❓Wouldn't it be chill to have 46 mill❓
📅 Saturday April 20 📅

After Maastricht on the 9th of March and Eindhoven on the 23rd of March, Extinction Rebellion will once again take massive action against aviation and now at Groningen Airport Eelde!

Why are we taking action?
Over the next 10 years, the provinces of Drenthe and Groningen will jointly invest €4,600,000 annually in Airport Eelde [1]. €4.6 million annually for an airport that at its peak transported only 228,000 passengers per year [2]. €4.6 million annually for an airport that should already have had an airport decision in 2014 and still does not [3]. €4.6 million annually for an airport, while bus lines are disappearing everywhere.

Our demands:
⛔ Groningen Airport Eelde must close!
⛔ No more public money to Eelde Airport - 46 million don't do it!
⛔ Stop fossil subsidies: Tax on kerosene now!

What do we do?
On April 20, we will take action with as many rebels as possible at Eelde Airport to make our demands known and generate attention for the absurdity of the investments of the provinces. The action will be both high-risk and low-risk. Get your nicest swimming trunks and your most summery outfit ready because we are going to have a great party.

Tip! Would you like to start with a sign, flag or banner? Then ask yourself: Wouldn't it be chill to have 46 mill.

Are you participating?
Awesome! Write down GAE on the calendar at the 20th of April. The registration form will follow!
