European Day of Action against Night Flights – Pyjama Photocall under the Heathrow Flight path

samedi 24 novembre 2012

On 24th November Heathrow campaigners staged an event in Hounslow (Lampton Park) as part of the European Day of Action against Night Flights. People whose lives are badly affected by disturbed sleep from night flights got together to say “Ban Night Flights” – with a colourful display of banners, pillows, duvets, dressing gowns, slippers, nightwear, and hot water bottles. The UK Government is expected to consult next month on a new night flight regime for the three designated airports – Heathrow, Stansted and Gatwick. The current agreement with the airlines runs out in October 2014. Night flights are hated across Europe and demonstrators across Europe are also calling for the widely hated night flights to be banned. Events were staged in Belgium, Italy and across Germany. This day of action is expected to mark the start of a Europe-wide campaign to get them banned.
