Manchester airport protesters claim lawful excuse as climate trial begins
The trial of six climate protesters who breached airside security at Manchester Airport began today at Trafford Magistrates Court. The defendants will argue that they acted to prevent death and serious injury by stopping emissions from the airport, a plea which echoes the defence of Greenpeace campaigners acquitted of closing down Kingsnorth Power Station. During the trial, which is expected to last three to four days, the defence will call expert witnesses including Professor Kevin Anderson from the Tyndall Centre who is speaking today in court, and experts on health and the effects of climate change. 
About half of the 30 or so local residents occupied the bank and turned it into a home - with rugs, chairs and cushions - to bring attention to the number of people that will face homelessness if cuts to housing benefit and other public services go ahead. The occupation lasted over half an hour, before the protestors moved outside to continue their protest in front of the doors. The branch remained shut for at least another an hour. 200 special anti-banks leaflets were distributed, and also over 1,500 leaflets publicising the coming borough-wide anti-cuts rally at the Civic Centre on Thursday 24th February.
