Sipson photographer harrassment

April 21st, 2009 § 1 comment § permalink


Brett, an American student studying for his Masters has been in Sipson for the past month or so, photographing residents whose homes are under threat. We like having him around, but the police don’t, and have regularly stopped and searched him. We don’t understand why, but they’ve been have using section 44 of the Terrorism Act because he is photographing “near Heathrow airport”.

Look on the map. Most of the village is a good mile from the airport.

A fucking mile away! What sort of photos that are gonna be any good for terrorism puproses is he get from there?

The Guardian:

“The opposition is overwhelming but the government has decided to side with big business rather than listen to the people who put them where they are and the people can remove them again,” said Geraldine Nicholson, chair of the No Third Runway Action Group. “This is the biggest environmental disaster we’ve ever known in this country.”

Gathered in the King William IV pub, some local residents were in tears but most said they were not surprised and would redouble their efforts to save their historic village, which was first recorded as Sibwineston in 1150.

Welcome to airplot
That’s it, you’re in, you’re now a part of the plot to stop airport expansion.

You’ll hear more from us shortly about what you can do to help stop a third runway at Heathrow – we only got the papers through on the land last week, but there’s much more to come.

Welcome aboard.
