|Mega Rally Against Heathrow Expansion
Local MP's organise event in Barn Elms
Zac Goldsmith MP will be joined by the Mayor of London, local MPs from all parties, and Council Leaders at a 'mega rally' he is organising to demonstrate the strength of feeling against possible expansion at Heathrow Airport, and to promote the Council's referendum on the third runway.
The Prime Minister recently set up the Davies Commission to recommend how to maintain the UK’s aviation capacity and the Commission will be looking at Heathrow Airport as part of this work.
“This is now a great opportunity for residents to rally together and reaffirm their opposition to any expansion at Heathrow. The more people that come along, the stronger the message we’ll send.”
There will be a series of short speeches before Boris casts the first 'vote' in a giant ballot box to be constructed by pupils and teachers at Richmond Park Academy.
Everyone is encouraged to attend the event, which will take place at the Barn Elms Playing Fields between 09:30 and 10:30 on Saturday 27 April 2013.
