Aviation and its environmental impacts are going up and up in the public consciousness. Meanwhile ordinary people are giving up on conventional modes of representation and are turning to other forms of action.


Aviation and its environmental impacts are going up and up in the public consciousness. Meanwhile ordinary people, tired of being ignored, tired of having their time wasted with phoney consultations and frustrated by lack of options to use their vote effectively, are turning to other forms of action.

There have been ‘direct actions; such as the high-jacking of the Transport Minister at Chatham House and the ‘revolving doors’ action at BAA.Outspoken ‘adverts’ have appeared in the national press, the latest being one timed for the local elections on 3rd May.

AEF does not aim to to carry stories on all these actions and activities, but information and links may be found on the Airport Watch web site and in the local and national media.
