London City Airport Protest

After the pretty gross news last week that Oxford Street is the most polluted place on the planet, we were disappointed to hear London City Airport wants to expand. 

The Airport has already outgrown its Docklands location and in July Newham Council will decide whether to let them expand. More expansion will mean more noise, more air pollution and more heavy traffic in the streets near the airport. Meanwhile proposals to revive the Royal Docks by replacing the airport with sustainable developments are gathering support.

So, on Monday 21st July at 11am The Future – a hot new climate protest campaign – will go and watch the airport. They will draw a circle around their eyes as a symbol that they are watching those in power as they decide whether to choose the toxicity of London City Airport over the health of local people and of London.

Groups of people from around the world have worn this symbol to show that they stand united for The Future.

If you fancy joining in, they’ll be meeting at 10.30am at the Roz Café, Pier Parade, E16 2LJ. More info on the event here.
