Rally Against The Runway

If you are worried about the spectre of Heathrow expansion, make a note in your diary for the most important event of the year – Rally Against The Runway.

Big guns line up to fight a third runway – Tuesday 3rd March 7pm at Church House Conference Centre, Westminster SW1P 3NZ.

Top speakers include:

  • Vince Cable Lib Dem MP for Twickenham
  • Natalie Bennett leader Green Party
  • Steven Norris former Conservative transport minister
  • Jill Seymour MEP UKIP’s national transport spokesperson
  • John Sauven chief executive Greenpeace
  • Andy Atkins chief executive Friends of the Earth
  • Manuel Cortes general secretary TSSA union
  • Chris Baugh assistant general secretary PCS union
  • PLUS: MPs Zac Goldsmith, John McDonnell, John Randall, Mary Macleod, Andy Slaughter, Adam Afriyie
  • .
    In what promises to be the biggest rally of the year, cabinet ministers and party leaders will link up with top environmentalists, key trade union leaders and business people to speak out against a third runway at Heathrow. The rally, organised by HACAN, is your chance tell the next Government what you think of a third runway. Whichever party wins the General Election in May will be faced with the decision of where to build a new runway.

    The Airport Commission, currently assessing options for a new runway, will report shortly after the General Election. The next Government will need to take a decision about a new runway. When the last Government tried to build a 3rd runway, its plans were defeated by the strength of public opposition.

    Let your voice be heard! This is our chance to show that the opposition to a new runway has not gone away.

    Church House Conference Centre, Westminster is within walking distance from Westminster or St James’s Park tube stations.

      Hello. Thank you very much for the update regarding the rally.
      It is something both my wife & I feel strongly about, but because the rally is being held during the working week it makes us unable to attend due to work commitments. I wonder how many other people are in the same predicament, therefore would a rally or meeting during a weekend day be worth considering?
      Yours sincerely
