Climate change activists are challenging the weather, and the authorities, by setting up a seven-day-long camp 800 meters from Heathrow airport to protest against climate change and the expansion plans for the airport on Tuesday, Aug. 14, 2007, in Hayes and Harlington, England. Aviation is the fastest growing source of greenhouse gas emissions in the UK, and all our efforts to tackle climate change in other sectors are undone by the massive growth in air travel. Holding the camp at Heathrow aims to highlight the paradoxical government's airport expansion plans, target industry giants profiteering from the climate crisis, and raise awareness about the need to fly less. The camp also support local residents in their long-term struggle against the building of a third runway and the destruction of their communities. Heathrow, the world's busiest international airport, has been the target of Climat Camp campaing in 2007. www.climatecamp.org.uk **Italy Out**.
