Anti Airport Expansion Movement Grows
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.
