Climate change protesters will try to occupy the departure and arrival lounge and block security.

If protesters cannot, they will “fall back” to target London City Airport’s DLR station and the road outside the airport.

“Wherever we land, we will construct our ’13th site’ – bringing food, water, tents and sleeping bags to make sure we can continue holding the airport and keeping it closed for a full 3 days,” they said.
