14th August 2007 | Issue 599 - GROUND CONTROL - As fly-by-night protesters occupy Heathrow site... Climate activists caught the Met's finest flat-footed on Saturday night as they pre-emptively seized land for the climate camp. At 10pm around 150 activists poured onto the site on Sipson Lane near Harlington - just 800m away from BAA's headquarters (see map and directions). Within minutes an intricate tripod structure of scaffold tubes was erected and occupied to prevent a swift eviction.
Police observe the Camp For Climate Action at Heathrow

In the event police didn't arrive in numbers until over an hour later, giving the squatters time to get vital equipment on-site to begin camping. A perimeter was secured with fencing stakes and rope, and primed with Section 6 notices. Soon after, scores of police arrived and blocked Sipson Lane - preventing vehicle access and conducting random stop and searches under Section 44 of the terrorism act.

27th July 2007 | Issue 598 - AIRBUSTED - Injunction taken out against Heathrow Camp For Climate Action - If you were in any doubt that the Camp for Climate Action is gonna have a big impact this year then check out Heathrow airport's reaction to having been chosen as the venue! This year the camp will be at the world's busiest airport which is a bigger source of CO2 emissions than most countries. Of course it's sheer lunacy in this time of ecological crisis but the aviation industry are pushing to almost double the airport's capacity by increasing flights and building a third runway. The battle to stop them will be one of the most important environmental battles in Western Europe.
