UK: Dozens block Westminster road over 'morally reprehensible' Heathrow plan

Dozens of protesters blocked a road outside the Houses of Parliament in London on Friday ahead of a key Commons vote on the construction of a third runway at the capital's Heathrow Airport. The protesters sought to put pressure on Labour, the opposition party, citing fears the new runway will raise London's air pollution levels and contribute to global warming. «It's just a morally... Еще reprehensible decision if it were to go through so we just need MPs to vote 'no', we need people to tell their MPs how they feel and tell them to vote 'no' to Heathrow,» said Cal, a protester. The debate over the construction of a third runway at Heathrow has raged for years, with detractors claiming it would negatively impact residents in the airport's vicinity as well as the environment, while others say it would boost the UK's economy and efficiency.
