We’d like to thank the hundreds of supporters who joined us at Manston Airport last night (9th May 2014) to protest the closure of the site. We continue to campaign for Ann Gloag to accept the fair, credible and viable bid from Riveroak Investment Corp. To this end, we continue to follow various leads to prevent the closure of the airport and any possible re-development plans. We are still very hopeful that the airport will be saved and will bring you more news as and when we can.
Videos of the campaign can be seen here and here. Over 300 were in attendance, with guests including MPs Sir Roger Gale and Laura Sandys. BBC South East and ITV Meridian broadcasted evening news reports live from the scene, and other news outlets were also present.
