"A flash mob is a large group of people who assemble suddenly in a public place, perform an unusual action for a brief time, then quickly disperse." (Wikipedia)
Following the success of recent UK anti-airport expansion flashmobs at demonstrating opposition to airport expansion, flashmobs are going international! On Saturday 16th May 2009 there will be simultaneous flashmobs happening at London Heathrow, Dublin, Paris, Brussels, Frankfurt and Amsterdam Schiphol airports.

The Dutch government has just released an aviation white paper promoting airport expansion. But expanding our dependence on aviation displaces local communities, destroys green land, and the aircraft pump toxic gases high up into the air, damaging our health and contributing to climate change!
