Airplot anniversary

Airplot - join the plot I was asked to mention Airplot recently, which has had its anniversary. You may remember this - it is the scheme against the third runway at Heathrow, organised by Greenpeace, which involves buying a plot of land right in the middle of the proposed site, and making a nuisance of yourself when the time comes for purchase to take place. I thought this was a good idea when I first heard of it so I'm quite happy to mention it again now.

There can only be four legal owners of the plot, but there are any number of "beneficial owners" allowed, on whose behalf the legal owners own the land and who have certain rights that hopefully will make it harder for the plot to be compulsorily purchased. It doesn't cost anything to become a beneficial owner; all you need to do is give them your name and email address. (Of course, you can make a donation as well if you want.) You don't even need to be a UK citizen or resident and it takes about ten seconds to sign up - I have. There's an FAQ here if you want a bit more information about the campaign, and Greenpeace have lots of information about why making this ridiculously massive airport even more bloody massive is a bad idea.
