Paper plan flash mob at DfT

From the people who brought you the Terminal 5 Flash Mob …


Tell Ruth Kelly: Stop Airport Expansion

– Meet 11am, Thursday 3 July, Department for Transport (DfT), 76 Marsham
Street, SW1P 4DR (tube: St James’s Park or Westminster)
– 11.03am: Reveal your ‘Stop Airport Expansion’ t-shirt if you have one
– 11.05am: launch your ‘Stop Airport Expansion’ paper planes at the DfT

A third runway and increased flights at Heathrow would destroy local
communities, cause misery for tens of thousands of local residents, and help
make devastating climate change inevitable. Yet Transport Secretary Ruth
Kelly has refused to visit local authorities or meet with local people who
will be affected.

Join us on 3 July to find Ruth Kelly and tell her to Stop Airport Expansion!

We’ll be taking the message direct to her doorstep at the Department for
Transport. After the mass launch at 11.05am you may also want to take paper
planes to Downing Street or Parliament, or anywhere else she may be
