    campaigners have sent messages of support to their fellow campaigners in Germany
    and France who will be staging major demonstrations against airport expansion on
    Saturday 24th March. In Germany tens of thousands of people are
    expected to turn out in at least five cities. In Frankfurt as many as 20,000
    people could occupy the terminal. And, in Munich the campaigners against the
    proposed third runway will hold as picnic in the terminal. In Nantes the
    demonstrators will occupy the centre of the city.

    The big
    demonstrations in Frankfurt have been sparked by the impact of the fourth runway
    opened by Chancellor Angela Merkel in October. Every Monday evening since it
    opened up to 5,000 people have occupied the terminal at the airport in protest
    against the noise of the new flight paths
    (1). Their Saturday demonstrations have attracted as many as 20,000

    In Munich
    climate change activists and local residents have joined forces to fight the
    proposed third runway. In Berlin the protests are against a newly-opened
    airport. At Cologne and Leipzig night flights are the big problem. In France
    the demonstration is part of a long-running, high-profile campaign to stop the
    building of Nantes International Airport.

    Chair John Stewart, who has visited the campaigners in Munich, Frankfurt and
    Nantes, said: “These protests give the lie to the impression always given by the
    UK aviation industry that airports in Europe will continue to expand. It is
    clear that it is becoming virtually impossible to build a new runway anywhere in
    Western Europe.”
