#HEATHROW 13

To encourage an appeal outcome that reverses the threat of a custodial sentence for the #HEATHROW13 Plane Stupid environmental activists &/or support a downgrade of the sentence to non-custodial.

Why is this important?

The signatories of this petition regard peaceful, direct action as a political right & believe that poeple are entitled to non-violent political protest, as inferred by rights under Article 19 & Article 20 [1] of the UN Universal Declaration of Human Rights:

Article 19
Everyone has the right to freedom of opinion and expression; this right includes
freedom to hold opinions without interference and to seek, receive and impart
information and ideas through any media and regardless of frontiers.

Article 20
1. Everyone has the right to freedom of peaceful assembly and association.

How it will be delivered

Offer the petition to the Plane Stupid organisation to use as evidence of public interest & concern about the over zealous judgement on the #HEATHROW13, either through a press conference, or personal or electronic delivery to No. 10 Downing Street &/or the office of the Home Secretary.
