LONDON, Aug. 5 (UPI) -- Black Lives Matter protestors have snarled traffic outside Heathrow Airport, London police said Friday.
The protesters first rolled out a banner that read "Black Lives Matter, This is a crisis," then laid down in the entry road to the airport, completely stopping traffic on part of the M4.
Protestors planned a day of of various demonstrations, which also disrupted traffic in Nottingham and Birmingham. Police have placed barriers around the protestors and are trying to cut the ties protestors have used to lock themselves together. Negotiators are also working with the protestors.
Nottingham's Upper Parliament Street came to a complete stop, the BBC reported.
Nottingham organizer Cara Thompson told the BBC, "We need people to listen, to really stop and listen to what is happening to black people -- not just in the USA."
