As New York City reached 22C three climate defenders entered their not guilty plea at Uxbridge Magistrates Court yesterday to climate carols and support from locals.
In late November the three people blocked the road to Heathrow Airport in protest of airport expansion and to highlight David Cameron’s promise of “No if’s no buts, no new runway”. For blocking the road they are charged with breaking a local by-law and are pleading not-guilty as their actions were to prevent a greater harm.
The defenders will be told the date of their trial on the 6th of January. On the 18th of January the trial for the Heathrow 13 begins at Willesden Court.
Jingle bells, expansion smells, block it all the way.
Keep jingling those bells. Merry Solstice and Christmas to you all!
