Extinction Rebellion plans two-week Heathrow drone shutdown


Extinction Rebellion members are reportedly planning on a two week shutdown of Heathrow Airport this coming autumn.

According to leaked documents seen exclusively by the Huffington Post, the climate activist group will organise ‘day after day’ of chaos across a two week period.

The protest is part of a bid to stop flights, the leaked document reveals, in a wider move to combat plans to expand the airport.

Huffington Post revealed the document stated: “There is the opportunity to transform the humble drone into a David which allows us to stop the Goliath of Heathrow and the global aviation industry from destroying us.”

The plans outline how drones would be flown no higher than 6 feet and weigh less than 7kg as well as been flown away from designated flight paths to ensure ‘non-violent action’.

An open “hotline” to police and two months’ notice would also be provided.
