London Event TOMORROW (Tues 4/2/20) & Denham Update

Science Museum Tomorrow

Boris Johnson is attending a COP26 launch event tomorrow, Tuesday 4th February at the Science Museum, Exhibition Road, SW7 2DD. Join us there from 8.00am.

At this point in time, whilst he still has not made a decision about the massively damaging HS2, the ecocide continues along the proposed route.

Even on the obviously massaged official figures, HS2 does nothing to tackle the climate emergency, being protected to be a net carbon contributor 120 years into the future. Impacting almost 700 habitat sites and over 100 irreplaceable ancient woodlands only adds to our wildlife emergency.

Please join us outside the Science Museum, 8.00 - 11.00am, Tuesday 4th February to deliver our message to Boris Johnson he must pull the plug on HS2 before it is too late.

Denham (near Harvil Road camp) Works This Week

Tree felling is scheduled to take place in Denham Country Park all week. Please help prevent this ECOCIDE by visiting/joining with the Earth Protectors that are here to give voice to the trees.

This biodiverse wet woodland is being felled to build a TEMPORARY ROAD for works access to move two pylons, making way for HS2.

Please come down and stay for as long or as little as you can manage.

Denham Country Park Visitor Centre, then into the country park on the bridge over the River Colne

Bring any climbing equipment, pallets, tarpaulin, coffee, dry energy food and... yourselves! 

Also this weekend (8th and 9th) Harvil Road and the Chiltern train line are closed again for HS2 to clear vegetation and chop down trees. We will continue to stand for them

The above link gives info on the Chilterns. Formed 65 million years ago. Heres an extract...The chalk forms a major aquifer (water bearing rock sufficient to provide a water supply to wells).
In London it has been possible in the past to have artesian wells, because the surface of the land
was lower than the water table in the hills to the North and South. This caused the water pressure
to force water up the well to try to restore the water level to that in the chalk. (This means that it is
particularly important not to pollute water in Chilterns since the chalk in this area is a point of input
to the aquifer underlying the whole Thames basin.) In Victorian times, the water table fell because
of the increase in industrial activity until there was no artesian effect. The reduction in industry
over the last 30 years has caused the water table to rise by about 45’. This is having an impact on
the deeper sections of the London Underground. It also partly explains the increase in winter
flooding around Chesham and other towns in the Thames basin.
