STOP HEATHROW EXPANSION

End-of-Consultation Rally

Central Hall, Westminster

corner of Tothill St and Storey’s Gate (Westminster and St James’s Park tube stations)

25th February 2008, 7pm

The rally to come to! It is a great chance to show the breadth of opposition there is to the expansion proposals.

Bring yourself! No charge! Bring your friends!

Be part of the thousands of voices saying ‘No’!

A wide range of speakers! Live Music! Campaign videos!

We have arranged for a Lobby of Parliament on the same day (see below)

Liberal Democrat leader Nick Clegg will be speaking at the Rally

Speakers already confirmed include:

  • Mark Lynas, climate change specialist and author of three books on the subject
  • Peter Ainsworth MP, Shadow Secretary of State for the Environment
  • Caroline Lucas MEP, Principal Speaker for the Green Party
  • John McDonnell MP, Labour MP for Hayes and Harlington
  • Brian Paddick, Liberal Democrat candidate for London Mayor
  • Councillor Barbara Reid, Hounslow Council cabinet member, representing the 2M group of local authorities
  • Leo Murray, Plane Stupid
  • Geraldine Nicholson, Chair No Third Runway Action Group
  • John Stewart, Chair HACAN

Chair of the event: Baroness Jenny Tonge

——————————————————-

The Lobby of Parliament will run from 5 p.m. until 10 p.m.

It is an opportunity for anybody who wishes to go and lobby their MP in Parliament. It is better to let you MP know beforehand that you are coming, but it is not essential that you do. All you need to do is:

  • go to the St. Stephen’s Entrance of the House of Commons (that’s the main entrance);
  • tell the police you are part of the Heathrow lobby (the lobby has been agreed with the police)
  • go to the Central Lobby and ask to see your MP

Even if your MP is onside, it is worth going to lobby him or her because part of the purpose of the exercise is to show other MPs just how much concern there is about the issue.
