Visitors to the Greenpeace Field last year might remember their miniature Sipson village feature, highlighting the popular campaign by Greenpeace and other organisations against the proposed third runway at Heathrow.
Over 7,000 Festival-goers signed-up as beneficial owners of Airplot – the piece of land in the middle of the proposed third runway site at Heathrow Airport which has been bought by Greenpeace. This plot of land is now shared by over 77,500 people who stand against the proposed expansion of the airport.
In March this year, the High Court dealt a massive blow to the Government’s proposed plans for expansion at Heathrow, instructing the Government to re-consult on the project as part of an overhaul of its wider aviation policy.
The Greenpeace campaign is on the verge of success, but they still need your help to keep up the pressure until they get an outright win. Greenpeace won’t rest until the Government, old or new, has scrapped the expansion plans categorically and permanently.
Please help Greenpeace and Join the Plot. They want to reach their target of 100,000 beneficial owners by May 1st, when they’ll close the deeds on the land. They will then present the deeds to the government and persuade them that they must overturn the plans. You too can become an landowner.
