Day of Action against Short Haul Flights - Locations of Public Events

Plane Stupid is calling for a day of action against short haul flights and short haul operators on November 6th, during the UN International Climate Talks in Nairobi. The day of action is two days after the mass event for climate action in London on November 4th, organised by Stop Climate Chaos and the Campaign Against Climate Change.

This is a public call out to anyone who opposes the unsustainable growth in air travel. 45% of all flights in Europe are to destinations of 500km or less – that’s the equivalent of London to the Scottish border. Those are places like Manchester or Paris that are easily reachable by train, bus or ferry – all alternatives which are far less polluting.

This day of action was decided upon during the Plane Stupid workshop at the ‘Camp for Climate Action’ at Drax power station in Yorkshire.

Use your imagination! Take creative direct action against your local short haul operator, travel agent or airport.

There are also several public awareness raising events.

London: Meet 11am Palace Gate Kensington Gardens.

Reading: 12pm outside Thomas Cook (121-122 Broad St).

Cambridge: Location TBC.

Bring placards, banners and enthusiasm for engaging and communicating with the public.
