No to Heathrow’s Third Runway

March 5, 2010

I joined a large demonstration against the third runway at Heathrow outside the High Court recently.

The protest was in support of a legal challenge to the Government’s decision to build a third runway at Heathrow airport. The challenge has been led by a coalition of local councils, conservation groups and residents.

Thousands of Lewisham residents are disturbed by the relentless noise of low-flying planes heading to Heathrow. The third runway at Heathrow will not only make this problem worse, but will also increase the damage we cause to our envrionment.

And yet our Labour MP failed to oppose the extra runway while the Labour government voted it through Parliament. Yet another example of how she has put loyalty to her party before loyalty to local people.
