‘Extinction Rebellion’ Climate Activists to Shut Down Heathrow for 10 Days in Drone Attack

The climate change activist group Extinction Rebellion is planning a series of protests using drones to shut down Heathrow Airport for 10 days in July, unless plans to expand the airport are scrapped.

The group has threatened to hold a one-day demonstration on the 18th of June, with ten days of disruption planned from July 1st if their demands are not met. This threatens hundreds of thousands of passengers’ journeys, most going on their summer holidays, and it is expected it would cost millions of pounds in policing.

The Extinction Rebellion protest would likely see these problems magnified given the size and status of Heathrow — the busiest airport in Europe — and the time of year, i.e. when most families are travelling on holiday.
The kind of disruption that reports of drones in the sky over an airport can cause was seen last year, when a series of alleged drone sightings shut down Gatwick airport for several days, disrupting the flights of 140,000 passengers and costing half a million pounds in police overtime.
