Anti Airport Expansion Movement Grows

It looks like we have a convergence.

The people immediately threatened by the expansion of heathrow are converging with the people representing those more indirectly effected by the expansion. That right, residents and climate activists are finding a common strategy in high impact media stunts and non viollent direct action NVDA. All this after a hugely successful public meeting.

According to StopAirportExpansion:

Last Saturday's anti-Heathrow Expansion Conference (organised by HACAN, NOTRAG and GreenPeace) was a great success, agreeing a major offensive this Autumn to keep the pressure on the Government. Activities will include:

* a pledge to take direct action if the Government gives the green light to

* direct action training camps

* more flash mobs and demonstrations

* the promotion of alternatives to airport expansion

* further work to challenge the economic arguments for expansion

There is more about what sounds to have been a very exciting meeting here.
