Airport occupation at Schipol, Netherlands

More traffic growth? More roads? Airport Expansion? You must be CHOKING! It's time to take ACTION!

Labout are backsliding on the victories of the 1990's roads protests, and many road schemes, dropped in the 1990s, are back on the road builders' agenda. Meanwhile the Government is also proposing large-scale airport expansion... and all in the same breath as talking about tackling climate change.

This backslide CAN and WILL be stopped by PEOPLE POWER.

We need to ORGANISE NOW!

The government is backtracking on the victories of the 1990s anti-road building campaigns... it wants to build more roads, expand existing roads, and also build new runways and terminals at airports across the UK. At the same time, Labour claims to be serious about tackling climate change.

 

Below is a review of some of the road building which may follow from the Multi- Modal Studies/ Road-Based Studies, prepared by Denise Carlo at Transport 2000.

The Seventh Conference of Parties intergovernmental climate conference in Marrakech continued in the well established pattern of further weakening the feeble Kyoto Protocol and increasing its vast loopholes. The event was marked by protests around the world.

Before THE DAY AFTER TOMORROW...

The day before tomorrow

Brought to you by BP, Exxon, Shell, & governments of western countries.

The Day after Tomorrow is more science fiction than science fact, yet the danger of a climate crisis is very real, and we've got to take action right now to prevent it.
