Campaigner have appealed for people from across the borough to rise up for a march and rally to show solidarity against the proposed third runway at Heathrow.
On Saturday, the march led by NoThird Runway Action Group (NoTRAG) will pass through the villages which will be worst affected by the runway.
The two-mile walk starts at the green, in High Street, Harlington, at 11.30am, and goes through Sipson before reaching Harmondsworth at around 1.30pm for a rally with speeches by MPs and activists, live music by a jazz group and local bands, a barbecue, and drink in The Crown and The Five Bells pubs, and other entertainment.
The 15th Century tithe barn, and the 11th Century St Mary’s Church, both off Harmondsworth High Street, will be open to the public.
Friends of the Earth, the borough’s MPs, and other campaign groups and residents, including people from the north of the borough who fear the lung disease, asthma and huge increase in noise from low-flying planes that a third runway would bring, will join the event.
Hayes and Harlington MP John McDonnell (Lab), said: “BAA’s new proposals for a runway and sixth terminal will wipe out the villages of Harmondsworth and Sipson totally, while Longford and Harlington, Hayes and West Drayton will become so heavily polluted by poisonous gases and noise they will become uninhabitable.
“The 10,000 residents who live in our community would be forcibly moved from their homes, their children’s schools will be demolished, their churches and community centres either knocked down or rendered unusable.
“For those who remain in the south of the borough, they can look forward to a future of asthma and cancer risk from airport pollution. If you care, come and join us on Saturday, because we all need to rise up now.”
NoTRAG is also currently holding a roadshow at libraries in the borough to explain the devastation the runway would cause and how people can protest.
The two remaining library sessions, between 5-7pm, are:
Tomorrow (Thursday), at Hayes Library, Golden Crescent.
Tuesday, June 10, Central Library, Uxbridge High Street.
