Campaigners gathered near Gatwick this morning to protest over plans to expand the airport.
The concerned residents are calling for an immediate halt to proposals for a second runway. Peter Barclay accused the aviation industry of greenwashing the public about their ambitious plans to become net zero.
The protest is one of nine across the country - including Southampton - to coincide with the COP26 Climate Summit.
Gatwick Airport is consulting on its plan to bring its emergency runway into routine use. A spokesperson said they were aware of the protest at the airport, and respect the right for people to peacefully protest.
And demonstrators also marched through Eastbourne - in support of the global day of action.
Hundreds joined the march which went through the town - finishing at Wish Tower Slopes - where green campaigners and speakers called out for urgent action from local leaders in response to the climate crisis.
In Southampton about fifty people occupied a small area at the airport entrance. There was no disruption for travellers.
The campaigners want to see alternative transport systems developed.
