National Demonstration against the third runway at Heathrow – get your union to support it

Climate change is a working class issue. Try to get this resolution through your union branch. Amend it as appropriate.

image This Association notes:
1) The contradiction between the Government’s stated aim of reducing greenhouse gas emissions and its practice of expanding roads and airports.

2) The devastating impact a proposed third runway at Heathrow Airport would have on local communities as a consequence of raised air and noise pollution, and on the world’s climate as a result of increased emissions of greenhouse gases.

This Association therefore demands that the UK government immediately abandons all plans to build a third runway at Heathrow airport.

This Association also agrees to:

1) Send a delegation and banner to the National Demonstration against the third runway at Heathrow at 12 noon on Saturday 31st May 2008. (Assemble at Hatton Cross Tube Station.)

2) Affiliate to the Campaign against Climate Change (Affiliation fees: National Unions £250 per annum; Districts and Regions £100 per annum; local branches £25 per annum), and help its work with a further donation of £… (cheques payable to Campaign against Climate Change should be sent to Campaign against Climate Change , Top Floor, 5 Caledonian Road, London N1 9DX)
