Nine Black Lives Matter protesters guilty over Heathrow disruption
Campaigners who blocked part of M4 for demonstration last summer are found guilty of wilful obstruction of the highway
Nine protesters who caused “utter chaos” when they chained themselves together and blocked a key route leading to Heathrow airport during a busy summer period last year have been found guilty of wilful obstruction of the highway.
Chanting “black lives matter” and “if they do not give us justice, we won’t give them peace”, they blocked the M4 southbound spur road to the London airport on 5 August 2016 at about 8.25am, Willesden magistrates court heard.
