This is their Third Runway, nay their Vietnam!Campaigners in Southwark say this issue is their "3rd runway" & intend to fight the felling of the trees . pic.twitter.com/yQMMoMLa96— Tom Edwards (@BBCTomEdwards) December 14, 2015
Campaigners are trying to protect 30 trees on (ironically) One Tree Hill from being chopped down to make way for graves. This is an ongoing problem, with a shortage of space in Southwark for burial plots bumping up against a shortage of space for everyone else.
The living should take precedent over the dead. No more space for cemeteries. Cremate us and heat the local swimming pool with our bodies.
Thanks to Monkeyboy for the tip off.
