  • Heathrow Ruling - Friends of Earth Comment, August 6: "The judge's decision is a victory for common sense. It sends a clear message to BAA that they cannot use their corporate muscle to stop people from engaging in lawful, peaceful protests on issues such as climate change." Gita Parihar, Friends of the Earth's Lawyer. The judge agreed that it was unjustified for BAA to seek an injunction against organisations campaigning on aviation and local groups opposing Heathrow expansion. The proposed injunction against HACAN, NOTRAG, AirportWatch and Geraldine Nicholson was dismissed and costs were awarded. The judge dismissed the wide-ranging injunction requested by BAA and issued a much more limited injunction covering trespass and nuisance in a defined area against Plane Stupid, its supporters and people acting with them.
