On Monday 25th February there was an indoor Rally against Heathrow expansion in the
Central Hall, Westminster, with around 3,000 attending (a second Hall had to be
used). This was after many local meetings around West London up to a thousand
strong. The movement against the Third Runway at Heathrow is gathering pace….and
This is not just about Heathrow, this is about drawing a line in the sand against
big investment decisions that are locking us into a headlong plummet into climate
catastrophe. The huge expansion in aviation, of which the Heathrow expansion is the
flagship component, is totally incompatible with winning the battle against climate
catastrophe, totally incompatible in fact, with the Government’s own Climate Bill.
This is a battle we need to win – and a battle we can win ! We want to see people
coming from all over the country to join the tens of thousands who will be
protesting in West London. We want a massive show of force to make sure we win our
first big victory in the war to redirect Britain towards a low carbon future. Come
and be part of it – join a Spring Carnival of Resistance to the Third Runway,
Airport Expansion and the insanity of government decisions that would lock us into
We can stop the third runway ! We will stop the third runway !
