Modern Movement
Rob Fisher

Modern Movement seem like good guys.  They are a grass roots campaign group in favour of better, faster, cheaper transport for all.  Who’d have thought it?  Perhaps this is part of the fight back that Counting Cats wrote about.  On February 19th they are holding a demonstration in Parliament Square in support of the Heathrow expansion.

The extension of flying to millions of people has been a liberation. Most of us can now afford to go on holiday and welcome the cheapening of air travel allowing us to fly abroad. The development of aviation infrastructure is crucial to allow ever more people to fly.

This is why Modern Movement will be holding a counter-demonstration at the same time as the anti-aviation groups to show our support for airport expansion and urge on the building of the third runway at Heathrow.

Good luck to them!
