Climate Camp

More sustainable transport links...
Once you start looking you can't stop finding them...

Climate Camp has opened on the edge of Heathrow to protest against the expansion of the airport.The protesters are being called 'irresponsible' because they are diverting police resources following the recent terrorist actions.
Clearly they feel that climate change is a greater threat in the longer term.

Read this BBC NEWS article and other articles about the camp.
What do you think about the camp ? Are these just hippies ? Are they justified ? How would you feel if your holiday was delayed or affected by their actions ? What are the messages they are trying to get across ? Are they likely to make any difference ? Isn't 'direct action' just criminal action ?
