The young protesters of climate change have introduced a small protest outside the Heathrow airport, amid a plan to “shut down” the transport hub. Almost 20 of them assembled next to a roundabout between terminals two and three with a banner caption “are we the last generation?” but all roads were open.
The home secretary had informed the police that they could use the “full force of the law” for stopping illegal demonstrations during the Easter break.
After several “non-violent civil disobedience” protests in current times, Extinction Rebellion group declared that it decided to raise the bar at the busiest airport of the UK, which is hoped to be used by almost 250,000 people today.
In a statement, the group informed, “there is deep remorse for those whose holiday and family plans will be disrupted. ” The statement also included, “ It is not our intention to cause further separation. However, the aviation industry needs to be targeted and we are all aware of the deep, structural change that needs to come.”
After a detailing from Met Commissioner Cressida Dick, Home Secretary Sajid Javid said, “ I totally condemn any protesters who are stepping outside the boundaries of the law.” The home secretary also included, “They have no right to cause misery for the millions of people who are trying to lead their daily lives. Unlawful behavior will not be tolerated ”.
He also professed, “ I expect the police to take a firm stance and use the full force of the law. They have my full backing in doing so.”
Heathrow said on Friday morning: “ Following earlier activity, we continue to work with the authorities to address any threat of protests which could cause disruption for passengers.
“Heathrow is currently operating normally”.
The Uk airport authority also explained that they consider the right of the peaceful protest and also admit the need to make moves for the ridiculous climate change, but they do not agree with the interruption which the passengers have to face amid their well-planned Easter break with friends and family.
