" D'ya ken Heathrow with its bags all stacked?
D'ya ken Heathrow with its planes all stacked?
Do you care for folks with their lungs all cracked?
Or are you squeezin' more in, in the mornin'?! "

What is the Sipson Shroud and when did it start?
It is a ‘living’ petition on cloth, made up of a series of numbered joined sheets.It started on 31st May 2008 at the demonstration against the proposed expansion of London’s Heathrow Airport.It was drawn against this proposal to destroy and kill Sipson village and to maim two other communities of Harmondsworth and Harlington on either side. The main reason given for expansion was economics (MONEY); not care for life, but money. This petition is described as a ‘living’ petition for we wish it to be visible and for it to continue to grow and mature. It highlights the folly of airport expansion and urgently calls for our leaders to practically respond to human induced climate change. One definition of a shroud is of a burial wrap or winding sheet. We await to see if that describes the ‘killing’ of Sipson village for London Heathrow’s expansion, or another definition of a shroud is a cover or guard and the Sipson Shroud – as a ‘living’ petition – can act as a reminder and guard against future folly, in our battle against selfish greed that results in global warming.
You can follow the Sipson Shroud’s progress on this site.
