Day of Action Monday November 6th 2006
Plane Stupid is calling for a day of action against short haul flights and short haul operators on November 6th, during the UN International Climate Talks in Nairobi.
The group is making a public call to anyone who opposes the unsustainable growth in air travel. 45% of all flights in Europe are to destinations of 500km or less – that’s the equivalent of London to the Scottish border. Those are places like Manchester or Paris that are easily reachable by train, bus or ferry – all alternatives which are far less polluting.
Plane Stupid is asking you to use your imagination and take creative direct action against your local short haul operator, travel agent or airport.
