Protest: first day of Heathrow legal challenge hearing
Heathrow is already the biggest single source of greenhouse gases in the UK – a third runway will all but blow our chances of meeting our targets for cutting emissions. We believe that the government’s decision is unlawful, as it ignores the impact of all those extra planes and traffic on the climate – and the huge consequences for future generations.
Organisations including Friends of the Earth and Plan B are therefore challenging the government's plans to expand Heathrow. The case will be heard from 11th March for 10 days.
Join them, along with local campaigners, for a massive show of support outside the Royal Court of Justice on Monday 11 March to say #NoThirdRunway and show your opposition to this climate-wrecking project. Facebook event
On Wednesday 13 March we expect the cilmate arguments to be heard, so there will be a crowd outside the courthouse again that morning! Facebook event
Please come to one or both events if you can.
