Thousands of activists are gathering near Heathrow Airport now at the Camp for Climate Action for eight days to protest “the lunacy of the government’s airport expansion plans.” They plan a week of actions; including protest, training, education, direct action, and civil disobedience. It took a court injunction to finally allow them to the right to protest, given the government fought them every inch on the way.
Events like this are the next big step forward for climate and antiwar organizing, multi-day events with numerous activities organized by a multitude of groups.
On Sept. 15, there will be a week of antiwar action in DC. Multiple groups will organize a mass march, direct action, lobbying, a march inside Congress, and more.
