Opponents of the new runway at Germany's busiest transportation hub, the Frankfurt Airport, have been gathering on Monday nights to protest the noise. A recent event at Terminal 1 on Dec. 19 drew an estimated 3,000 and 5,000 participants. Many are starting to draw comparisons to the "Stuttgart 21" protests earlier this year against the radical revamp of the train station in that city and construction of an entire new city district.
