Other folks had also planned a demonstration against short-haul flights to take place later that day. At around midday, a dozen protestors gathered outside Thomas Cook with their banner reading "Cheap Flights Kill! Climate Change Deaths So Far ... 150,000 per year!". They were met by three of her majesties finest, who informed them that the travel agents were operating a 'locked-door policy' (haha!). Itd be a shame if this disruption cost them any money....
The protest visited two other travel agents and distributed over 200 leaflets, detailing the effects of aviation on our planet. Most people (including a local Labour councillor!) were very supportive, with the exception of one concerned environmentalist who pointed out that cutting the bamboo cane for placards must be killing Panda's in China!
Well done to all who took action yesterday, and continue to fight against capitalism in defense of our lives!
