Politics Not vetted story Vetted story , Great Britain - 09 June 2012

A day of protest against the "absurd" surface-to-air missiles deployed in Greenwich for the Olympic Games, has been organised on june 9, 2012.

Residents along with union members  walked from Blackheath to Oxleas Wood, the sites of the two missiles wich could cause a "disaster" if fired.

The Rapier missiles have a range of up to five miles and would protect against a "worst-case scenario" 9/11-style attack on the games, according to the Ministry of Defence.

Greenwich and Bexley Trades Council is strongly opposed to the military move, fearing the potential damage and casualties in an area of high population density.
