Climate Rush Heathrow

Monday 12th January, 7pm at Heathrow

Not a Flash Mob, but……following their hugely successful Climate Rush on Parliament, the Climate Suffragettes invite all of us (men too) to Dinner at Domestic Departures, Heathrow Terminal One, 7pm, 12th January, the day Parliament resumes after the Christmas break.     http://www.climaterush.co.uk/whatnext.html#

Newham Council mobbed

Heathrow campaigners and environmentalists from around London joined forces with the local group Fight the Flights on Wednesday to protest against a 50% increase in flights at City Airport in a flashmob outside Newham Town Hall.

It coincided with a Newham Council hearing which as expected approved the expansion – but campaigners vowed it’s just the beginning of their fight. For the latest information see the Fight the Flights blog.

For a report from the flashmob, see Amelia’s blog.

London City flashmob – 8 October

London City Flashmob @ Newham Town Hall
Wednesday 8th October 5:45pm sharp.

On Wednesday 8 October Newham Council in London is deciding whether to give the go-ahead to a 50% increase in the number of flights using London City Airport.  Flights numbers would jump from 80,000 to 120,000 a year:

– Horrendous noise for local communities
– More air pollution
– Bad for climate change
– All the flights are short-haul flights

The Mayor, Boris Johnson, supports expansion.

Join us for a flashmob to say Stop Airport Expansion! – No Expansion of City Airport!

We’ll have some red t-shirts to give out on the day. Or just wear any red t-shirt.

Where we will be: Outside Newham Town Hall, Barking Road, East Ham. East Ham is pretty easy to get to: get the District Line to East Ham Underground, turn left down High St North, and after a few minutes walk you reach Barking Road and the Town Hall. Click here for a map
