12-01-2009 09:53This week the government is expected to give the go ahead for the third runway at Heathrow. The pressure group 'Climate Rush' have announced a sit-down 'dinner' at the Departures Gate of Terminal One in Heathrow Airport on Monday 12th. The Climate Rush dinner will begin at 7pm and is expected to last several hours. At the same time Manchester airports Domestic Departures (Terminal 3) will also be targeted. BAA has been preparing for the protests by sending threatening letters to people who've said they'll attend.
'The Climate Rush' held their first protest last October (13th October). Taking their inspiration from the Suffragettes they mounted a 'rush' on Parliament. Over 800 women, men and children, some in Edwardian costume, all with red climate sashes, rushed the Houses of Parliament. The doors were slammed shut, Parliament was forced to close for an hour and the shouts of 'Deeds not Words' was heard throughout the Palaces of Westminster.
