Extinction Rebellion Statement on today’s HS2 announcement

https:https://rebellion.earth/2020/02/11/extinction-rebellion-statement-on-todays-hs2-announcement/

In giving the go-ahead for this vanity project that is so over-budget and environmentally destructive, the Government has not listened to the people. The public are crying out for better local transport. In making this spending choice, the Prime Minister has approved a bottomless financial sinkhole that will destroy much of what little remains of Britain’s precious woodland, wipe out countless endangered and protected species, be a vast new source of carbon emissions, and poison a quarter of London’s water-supply. All at great cost to taxpayers.

Extinction Rebellion and StopHS2 join forces to save Colne Valley’s trees from HS2 destruction

https:https://rebellion.earth/2020/01/15/extinction-rebellion-and-stophs2-join-forces-to-save-colne-valleys-trees-from-hs2-destruction/

This weekend (17-20th January), Save Colne Valley, Extinction Rebellion and Stop HS2 join forces to save the trees that HS2 plans to fell along Harvil Road and along the Chiltern Trainline (UB9 6JW). This follows a failed attempt in April 2019 by HS2 to remove the trees stopped by an earlier joint action on a smaller scale, when protesters took to the trees. [1]
