Heathrow protest: more planes, more pain.

The following flew into my inbox;

Come and Make a Noise against Heathrow expansion.

Saturday 31 May 2008, 12 noon, Hatton Cross

The Carnival starts at Hatton Cross tube station (Piccadilly Line) and will make its way round the boundaries of the proposed 3rd runway, to Sipson – the village that will be destroyed if it goes ahead.

At Sipson we will spell out a giant human “NO” to expansion at Heathrow that will be seen from the air. Help us create the biggest and loudest NO the world has ever seen!

Expansion at Heathrow Airport means:

  • More noise and traffic for local residents
  • More pollution across London
  • The destruction of Sipson village
  • More climate change

Despite this, the Government and the aviation industry are pursuing expansion at any cost. They want a third runway and a sixth terminal. They want to increase the number of planes using existing runways. They want a constant stream of planes flying over people’s homes every single day. They want to destroy local communities. They want to ignore the science on climate change.

Be part of the carnival. Say NO to expansion at Heathrow.

Bring your family, bring your friends, and even your MP!

Together we can make NO mean NO

    That Make-A-Noise website is cool. Lol.

    I wish I could be there. There might be last-minute chance. Keep your fingers crossed. I’ll certainly lobby Gordon and my own MP.

    Yeah well Gordon says he’s going to listen now that he’s been knocked a solid punch in the polls. I for one won’t be holding my breath!

    Ain’t that site cool! Love the guitarist! Must explore it more.

    I won’t be holding my breathe either. I’ve no confidence in Brown at all. His Green stance has been shallow at best. We all know he will pander to the aviation industry and ignore the enironmental issue.
