Protests against Third Runway at Heathrow Airport

By Shayn Morris Heathrow Airport News

The number of protests against the third runway at Heathrow airport has increased tremendously. As we all know that the government officials delayed the decision of whether a third runway will be built at Heathrow or Gatwick airport, till the next summer.

Patrick McLoughlin said:

“The case for aviation expansion is clear – but it’s vitally important we get the decision right so that it will benefit generations to come. We will undertake more work on environmental impacts, including air quality, noise and carbon.”

Protests against the third runway at Heathrow airport are being organized by the people. Recently, some people protested by blocking a tunnel near Heathrow airport, saying that there will be no third runaway at the Heathrow airport.

Police arrested some people on whom they doubt were involved in the protest and charged them. Those people denied the charged them in the court.

Protesters from a group “Plane Stupid” gathered outside the court in solidarity with the arrested people. They were wearing Christmas carols having lines like “oh jingle bells expansion smells”.

Outside the court, Mr. Waldron said:

“We do these actions to defend the planet from harmful and unsustainable industries, and deem this a reasonable response to a failing government.”

The defendants were released on the bail. But they were asked to visit West London police station for further enquiries.


It is clear that people don’t want a third runaway at Heathrow airport because the climate will get dirtier by this act. But expansion is also imperative because the number of people travelling from Heathrow airport is increasing day-by-day. Also, Heathrow airport parking problems are also increasing. Therefore, the government should find a solution that is in the best interest of local residents and the airport.
