Airport protest grounded by tip off

05.11.08

A group of campaigners were ordered to leave Glasgow Airport because of a potential ‘threat’ to passengers last week, the Clydebank Post reports. The 10 activists from AirportWatch and Plane Stupid Scotland made what was meant to be a surprise trip to the airport on Wednesday afternoon. They planned to demonstrate as the first phase of the airport’s £31m Skyhub extension was opening. But after an apparent tip off, the activists - armed with placards and helium balloons and dressed in bright orange boilers suits - were met by waiting police.

A 'well-placed source' told the newspaper: ‘The campaigners were asked to leave because it was considered that their demonstration with helium balloons could cause a major threat to the airport and cause disruption. The police already knew about the demonstration because a concerned member of the public had contacted them to say that she had overheard a group on the train talking about what they could do to cause as much disruption as possible at the airport.’

A spokesman for Strathclyde police told the newspaper: ‘On Wednesday officers identified a group standing in front of the terminal. The officers went over to check it out and under the bylaws for the airport their details were taken and they were advised that they would not be allowed to demonstrate.’
