On Saturday 29th August, London City Airport Private Jet Centre was visited not by its usual super rich clients but by community activists from Extinction Rebellion Newham. For us, the Private Jet Centre – which also houses the Airport’s VIP Lounge – epitomises the injustice in our society that is leading us to
catastrophic climate breakdown.

The procession across Connaught Bridge was led by silent ‘Landing Crew’ performers to the Private Jet Centre where we heard rousing speeches by speakers from HACAN East, who represent residents underneath London City Airport and Heathrow Airport flight paths, Stand Up To Racism and our own XR Newham.
