Climate Activists attempt to board a plane at Southend airport in UK dressed as Microsoft executives taking a barrel of oil each as carry-on luggage

Sky Rebellion, a spin-off of Extinction Rebellion wheeled fake drums of jet fuel into Southend Airport to protest about Microsoft staff air miles ahead of the COP26 event in Glasgow. Sky Rebellion descended on the terminal to demand Microsoft, a principal partner at the COP26, keep staff flights to levels seen in 2020 during lockdown and to conduct all its meeting virtually.
