From the Manchester Evening News:
PROTEST groups descended on the Labour Party conference to oppose the expansion of Manchester Airport and raise support for ex-British Gurkha soldiers.
A flash mob, from the new environmental pressure group Stop Expansion at Manchester Airport (SEMA), staged a colourful protest to coincide with the fringe debate ‘Can politicians save the planet and get re-elected?’
About 100 protesters, with support from London campaigners opposed to the expansion of Heathrow airport, removed coats and jumpers to reveal bright red protest T-shirts outside Manchester town hall.
Bemused passers-by stopped and stared as protesters spelt out the words ‘take the trains’.
