#StayGrounded: A day of action against airport expansion
As part of a global wave of resistance against airport expansion, including La Zad (France), Atenco (Mexico), Vienna, Istanbul, Italy, Germany and Indonesia, Reclaim the Power is organising a day of mass action at Heathrow Airport, to tell the govt to #StayGrounded in climate science and#StopAirportExpansion!
Protesters have taken to Heathrow to demonstrate against any airport expansion and additional runways in the UK. Campaigning group Reclaim the Power, which organised the protest, says that plans for a new runway are "devastating for local air quality and for climate change."
Passengers reported “total carnage” trying to get into Heathrow airport today as protesters staged a demo against airport expansion. Police were on site as crowds of cyclists dressed in red rode their bikes outside the airport in a bid to block traffic before staging a 'die-in' inside the terminal.
