No Third Runway Flash Mob Staged at Heathrow Terminal Two
Over 50 campaigners from across London and the Home Counties staged at Heathrow Terminal Two today in protest against a third runway.
At 11am on the dot the campaigners, standing in front of the giant sculpture in the new terminal, revealed red t-shirts emblazoned with the words ‘No 3rd Runway’.
The campaigners included residents from Harmondsworth whose homes would be demolished to make way for the new runway as well as people from West London and Berkshire and as far afield as Lightwater and Binfield. They were joined by polar bears from Plane Stupid.
John Stewart, the chair of HACAN, the campaign group which organized the Flash Mob, said, “This was a fun event with a serious purpose. We wanted to send a strong message to David Cameron that, if the Government gives the green light to a third runway, he will face united, determined opposition.”
The Government is expected to make an announcement about new runways in December.
