Paraglider protests at Euro 2020 cause multiple injuries | Europe | Al Jazeera

On Tuesday, before the start of the Euro 2020 match between France and Germany, a protester was injured when he entered the Allianz Arena on a paraglider. The injured are currently receiving treatment in the hospital.

A paraglider with the words “Abandon Oil” and “Green Peace” on the paraglider flew into the stadium.

The parachutist entered the stadium at a steep angle, seemed to trip over the cable used by the TV camera at the top of the stadium, then tried to control the paraglider and avoid the fans in the stands, and finally landed heavily on the far side of the stadium.

Greenpeace said in a statement on Tuesday evening: “We sincerely apologize to the two injured, as well as the fans and players.”

French coach Didier Deschamps evaded the large pieces of debris from the accident, saying he “suffered a little bruise.”

UEFA, the governing body of European football, said in a statement on Tuesday: “This kind of ill-considered behavior may have very serious consequences for a large number of people participating in the game. Now several people who watched the game were injured and hospitalized. The legal authorities will Take the necessary actions.”.

“UEFA and its partners are fully committed to hosting a sustainable Euro 2020 and have implemented many measures to offset carbon emissions.

“Fortunately, the progress of the game was not affected by such reckless and dangerous actions, but a few people were still injured.”

The German Greenpeace wrote on Twitter on Tuesday: “Hey @Volkswagen, it’s time to kick the oil away! #绿平安活动家对#German-French war sports sponsors protested and demanded: stop selling climate-damaging Diesel and gasoline cars! #2020 European Cup”.
