Hysteria Watch 3: The Activists
The five protestors disembarked from a Manchester to Heathrow flight yesterday morning and ducked through a set of doors next to the arrival gate at Terminal One, which led downstairs to the broken doors.
Once on the tarmac, the campaigners scaled some stairs on to the airbridge, which allows passengers to walk from the terminal to the plane, and then they climbed on to the Airbus A320 jet where they hoisted a banner.
…The protestors were arrested on suspicion of causing damage and being in a restricted zone without permission, and have been bailed until April 29.
…Jones said Greenpeace would stage more protests against a proposed third runway at Heathrow “for as long as is necessary”.
She added: “We hope people are inspired by what we have done. Greenpeace will continue to take direct action.”
