BLM Protest At London Airport Calls Out Environmental Inequality

Air passengers in Britain and beyond faced delays on Tuesday after a “Black Lives Matter” protest on a runway halted flights for six hours at London City Airport and a computer glitch hit British Airways in London and the United States. More than 120 flights were canceled, delayed or diverted at City, a few miles east of the Canary Wharf financial district, after nine protesters locked themselves together on the runway. Police said late on Tuesday morning they had arrested all nine and the airline was preparing to resume flights. British Airways said it was taking longer than normal to process customers at a number of airports around the world, including London’s Heathrow and Gatwick, and urged passengers to check in online before they reached the airport. The airline, owned by International Consolidated Airlines Group, apologized to customers. “Really unhappy with @British_Airways “The system is down” & can’t check in!,” one passenger, Shail, said on Twitter. Analysts at Royal Bank of Canada said the delays - the second problem with the service this year - could damage the airline’s reputation after passengers took to social media to complain about delays in San Francisco, Washington D.C. and Atlanta on Monday night. British Airways has been rolling out a new check-in system since last year and a spokeswoman said the check-in delays were teething problems that affected many airports. Shares in BA’s owner rose 1.5 percent, apparently unaffected by its airline’s computer troubles. At City Airport, the protesters earlier erected two large posters with the slogans “Black Lives Matter” and “Climate Crisis is a Racist Crisis.” The British arm of the group, which started in the United States as a reaction to fatal shootings of black people by police, said it wanted to highlight Britain’s environmental impact on the lives of black people locally and globally. Members blocked a main road to London’s Heathrow Airport in August. “Black people are the first to die, not the first to fly, in this racist climate crisis,” the group said in a statement. “When black people in Britain are 28 percent more likely to be exposed to air pollution than their white counterparts, we know that environmental inequality is a racist crisis.” The campaign group said City airport was designed for the wealthy while those who lived near the site struggled on low salaries. Police said the protesters were now in police custody after being arrested on suspicion of aggravated trespass, being unlawfully airside and breaching London City Airport bylaws.

British Airways Tech Glitch, London City Airport Protest Spark Global Delays

LONDON (Reuters) - Air passengers suffered lengthy delays in Britain after a computer glitch hit British Airways check-ins and Black Lives Matter protesters forced their way on to the runway of London City Airport on Tuesday. More than 120 flights were canceled, delayed or diverted at City, a few miles east of the Canary Wharf financial district, after nine protesters locked themselves together on the runway. Police said late on Tuesday morning they had arrested all nine and the airline was preparing to resume flights. British Airways said it was taking longer than normal to process customers at a number of airports, including London’s Heathrow and Gatwick, but did not comment on reports there had also been hold-ups in San Francisco, Washington D.C. and Atlanta on Monday night. “Really unhappy with @British_Airways “The system is down” & can’t checkin!,” said one passenger, Shail, on Twitter. BA, owned by International Consolidated Airlines Group, apologised to customers and urged passengers to check in online before they reached the airport. Analysts at RBC said the hold-ups ― the second problem with the service this year ― could damage the airline’s reputation. Shares in BA’s owner rose 1 percent. At London City Airport, a few miles east of the Canary Wharf financial district, flights to and from its European destinations were delayed after nine protesters locked themselves together on the runway. A photograph circulating on Twitter showed the protesters surrounded by police and lying under a wooden tripod. They had erected two large posters with the slogans “Black Lives Matter” and “Climate Crisis is a Racist Crisis”. The British arm of the group, which started in the United States as a reaction to fatal shootings of black people by white U.S. police officers, said it wanted to highlight Britain’s environmental impact on the lives of black people locally and globally. “Black people are the first to die, not the first to fly, in this racist climate crisis,” the group said in a statement. “When black people in Britain are 28 percent more likely to be exposed to air pollution than their white counterparts, we know that environmental inequality is a racist crisis.” The campaign group, which blocked a main road to London’s Heathrow Airport in August, said City airport was designed for the wealthy while those who lived near the site struggled on low salaries. Police said they were negotiating with the protesters. “We are awaiting the arrival of specialist resources that are able to ‘unlock’ the protesters,” the force added in a statement. -- This feed and its contents are the property of The Huffington Post, and use is subject to our terms.

Бывший телохранитель принцессы Дианы рассказал, что охранники могли ее спасти

Бывший телохранитель принцессы Дианы, инспектор полиции в отставке Кен Уорф, в недалеком прошлом сделал сенсационное объявление о том, что охранники могли остановить ее перед тем, как она садилась в машину, которая впоследствии угодила в трагедию. По утверждению Кена Уорфа, леди Ди не погибла бы, если бы охрана не позволила тогда ей сесть в автомобиль.«Если хотя бы один работник личной охраны был с ней в тот день, Диана никогда бы не угодила в машину с нетрезвым водителем», — говорит он.Уорф убежден, что принцессу Диану специально не остановили.Напомним, принцесса Диана скончалась от травм, приобретенных в итоге сильного ДТП во Франции 31 августа 1997.Напомним, Диана, продюсер Доди аль-Файед и шофёр Анри Поль погибли в автокатастрофе, произошедшей в тоннеле перед мостом Альма 31 августа 1997 г. Тогда, предпосылкой трагедии объявили ошибку водителя, который не смог справиться с управлением авто, так как пытался оторваться от назойливых корреспондентов, которые следовали за принцессой.Леди Ди и Кен Уорф в Париже, ноябрь 1992 годаhttp://www.express.co.uk/news/royal/698911/Princess-Diana-death-car-crash-Paris-bodyguard-Ken-Wharfe-memoirs

Непарадный Лондон 1973 года

Очень многие привыкли произносить слово "Лондон" с придыханием: мировой центр финансовой мощи и международных интриг,  излюбленное место миллиардеров, шик особняков и роллс-ройсов, легендарная английская стильность и всё такое прочее. Город действительно прекрасный и неповторимый, это подтвердит почти всякий, кому довелось в нём пожить или хотя бы просто побывать. Поэтому довольно странно разглядывать фотографии 1970-х, на которых неотрыточные виды  города кажутся почти такими же удручающими, как облетевшие весь Интернет жуткие кадры нью-йоркской разрухи тех же 70-х. Но всё таки содержание лондонских снимков 1970-х несколько иное: здесь мы видим в основном массовый снос старой и полностью деградировашей застройки, на смену которой приходя громады современных жилкомплексов и башни офисных высоток. Мы видим город, который умирает, чтобы возродиться уже в новом обличии. И это было только начало. Настоящий строительный бум придёт в 1980-е при Тэтчер, когда от исторической застройки Лондона не останется камня на камне. То, что не смогли сделать немецкие бомбы и ракеты, сделали неумолимвые законы капитализма.  Moorhouse Rd mage hosted on flickr  Westbourne Park 1974 image hosted on flickr  St. Stephens Crescent image hosted on flickr  St. Stephens Gardens image hosted on flickr  image hosted on flickr  Demolition Westbourne Park Rd  Wapping image hosted on flickr  Shoreditch image hosted on flickr  Wapping image hosted on flickr  Ledbury Rd image hosted on flickr  Thames from Wapping image hosted on flickr  Milwall at express Wharf image hosted on flickr  Westbourne Park image hosted on flickr  west from Milwall image hosted on flickr  Tower Hamlets i image hosted on flickr  Whitechapel Новые доминанты  в силуэте города, это только начало: image hosted on flickr  Tower Bridge 1973 image hosted on flickr  Stephen and Matilda Houses Wapping image hosted on flickr  image hosted on flickr  Whitechapel image hosted on flickr  Looking from Westbourne Park image hosted on flickr  St. John's Church and school Wapping image hosted on flickr  View towards central London from Brunel Estate image hosted on flickr  Cheshire St. Sunday Market image hosted on flickr  image hosted on flickr  All photos: JB [email protected] http://www.flickr.com/photos/jonathanbarker/ Источник
