The camp at the end of the runway

Manchester airport plans to press ahead with its expansion plans, demolishing local homes and green spaces, and doubling air freight capacity. Local group Manchester Airport on Trial are hosting a camp for a weekend in the woods at the end of the runway. They are asking people to come and join them to get to know the local area and local residents and to learn more about the campaign against expansion.

Plans for the weekend include: walk and cycle caravan to look at sites of campaigning significance such as Arthur's Wood, the World Freight Centre, Hasty Lane and the sites of the 2nd runway protest camp.

The first group who are heading down there are meeting at 5:30pm at Piccadilly station on Friday 27th May or at 6pm outside Manchester Central Library for a critical mass which is heading straight for the camp.

There is an alternative meet time of 11am at Heald Green Station on Saturday 28th May for a walk and cycle caravan.

See you there.
