“Hundreds of activists opposed to a third runway at Heathrow are to launch a “flash mob” protest
The action will be the first sign of the mass protests expected to greet the Government’s controversial go-ahead for the expansion.
Several environmental, climate change and local residents’ groups – including those from the village of Sipson, which will be bulldozed to make way for the new runway – have come together to organise the demonstration.
Transport Secretary Geoff Hoon announced the Government’s decision on Thursday.
“We are all combining our tactics to make sure that the third runway never happens. This is just the beginning.”
