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.
