Cedars Wood camp set up at Manchester Airport

A protest camp has now been set up at Cedars Wood after Manchester Airport PLC started felling trees. The airport authorities wanted to chop down the wood because those blasted trees will get in the way of the radar for the new runway. Permission was given by the owners, National Trust, who are, once again, breaking their own rules.

The protesters are expecting eviction soon, despite the fact that the House of Lords have still to decide on the woods future.
