Medway Labour joined campaigners outside the London Assembly AGM at City Hall today to oppose Boris Johnson’s plans for an airport in the Thames Estuary.
Campaigners were represented from all parties, including Green mayoral candidate Jenny Jones, Caroline Pidgeon, Leader of the Liberal Democrat Group on the Assembly, and Labour’s Murad Qureshi.
Leader of the Labour Group, Cllr Vince Maple said, “It’s great to see strong cross-party opposition to the Estuary Airport so soon after the Mayoral elections.
“This sends a strong message to Boris Johnson that there is widespread opposition to his ludicrous proposals for an airport in the Thames Estuary.
“Medway Labour will stand shoulder to shoulder with anyone, regardless of party politics, to oppose this potentially devastating plan.”
Cllr Tristan Osborne, who attended the rally, said, “It was great to see such cross-party support at the rally.
“The rally today was timely as it coincides with the publication today by Kent County Council of its Aviation Paper opposing an Estuary Airport.
“This has been a longstanding campaign for Medway Labour, which we will continue to fight.”Other news from Medway Labour
