A climate change protest camp is being set up outside Heathrow airport.Thousands of protesters are expected this week at the Camp for Climate Action, which opposes the expansion of London’s biggest airport.
Protesters claim that the growth in air travel is a major factor in greenhouse gas emissions.
“Holding the camp at Heathrow aims to highlight the lunacy of the government’s airport expansion plans,” says a statement from campaigners.
Gemma Davis, a spokeswoman for the Camp for Climate Change, told the BBC that the intention was not to delay holidaymakers.
“We’re not here to try to disrupt passengers, we’re here to try to disrupt BAA,” she said.
Sooo… if the BAA is “disrupted,” how will that NOT effect the traveling public? That aside, a website supporting the camp says high-impact direct action” is scheduled for next Sunday promising acts of “civil disobedience”.
Moreoever, aren’t these idiots eating their own in a way? If a disruption of travel occurs how will Al “The Gorecle” Gore flit about the planet in gigantic fuel burning jets “preaching the gospel?”
