They came within an inch of jail, here’s their powerful message for all humanity (EXCLUSIVE FILM)

Chris Court-Dobson

On the 12 July 2015 thirteen activists occupied the runway at Heathrow airport, in protest against illegal levels of air pollution in London, climate change and threats of a third runway at the airport. Many have been involved in a years-long campaign to prevent airport expansion, that would see the nearby village of Sipson bulldozed.

In this exclusive film from The Canary, we get up close and personal with some of these activists. Threatened with jail, they speak about their motivations, and the harm that the aviation industry is causing to people in the vicinity of Heathrow and worldwide.
