Climate change protesters start day of direct action at Heathrow (Helene Mulholland, 8/19/07, Guardian Unlimited)

Anti-airport expansion protesters kicked off 24 hours of direct action with a midday march to the proposed third runway at Heathrow to form a human chain.

Two separate marches set off from the Camp for Climate Action outside the airport's perimeter fence, as local Harlington residents joined campaigners who have spent almost a week at the camp.

Campaigners oppose Heathrow's planned expansion because, they say, it will contribute to climate change.

Consensual government and free enterprise are the enemies of Airbus.
