Heathrow expansion: opponents ready to fight back ahead of decision
Environmental activists, communities and councils are preparing direct action if third runway gets go-ahead
Environmental activists, communities and local authorities are preparing for a campaign of opposition to a third runway at Heathrow, ahead of a decision on the expansion of the world’s third biggest airport.
Residents of villages threatened by the expansion have already been taking part in training for direct action, activists said, while four local councils have amassed a £200,000 war chest to fight expansion through the courts.
