Last night seven Plane Stupid activists and one Heathrow resident popped over to the PR Week Awards and hijacked a table reserved for Virgin Atlantic. Virgin Atlantic have been strong advocates for the third runway at Heathrow and expansion of Britain's airports, which we thought they shouldn't get away with.
last night a land rover dealership in west hertfordshire was attacked. tires were slashed on a number of these luxury cars.
for the liberation of the earth
Update: Insisting that expansion is still on the cards, BAA said: "We remain convinced that a third runway is the only viable, costed and thought-through way of meeting the need for extra runway capacity to maintain this country’s global connections to the rest of the world."

no more quarry blasting!
Backwell is a beautiful place but is under threat from the expansion of Bristol airport over head and from Tarmac under the ground.
Tarmac said they will stop blasting at Backwell Quarry this year but have now asked for a ten year extension!
We objected but they ignored us.

Two climate change activists have been arrested after breaching security at Oxford Airport.
The pair, from the Climate Rush group, climbed under a hedge and jumped over a fence to reach the runway area on Saturday afternoon.
They had been taking part in a picnic outside the airport which was organised by Climate Rush as a protest against the airport's expansion.
