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

  1. I e-mailed the e-mail address and called the number which went to some kind of voicemail. No reply as yet to the e-mail I sent so no idea how to get hold of the t-shirt.

  2. Somehow my Tshirt never arrived! Good luck to those who received theirs!

  3. London or Liverpool.. the problems caused by airport expansion are the same…health, land use, polluion, economic benefit but not for the local community etc

  4. Jamie Carr + Mary Toth

    Could someone ell us what happened?We turned up and got thrown out at 10.45!!! Police a bit short, threatened arrest while holding a gun. Hope it went well.
