Please share the live-streams far and wide.

Earlier posts have details regarding this weekend’s actions and please do come in person if you can. But if you can’t, please take some time on your social media to share the live-streams and raise awareness. All videos can be viewed here: https://facebook.com/XRebellionUK/video_grid/?ref=page_internal
It’s expected that embarrassment and public unease could have a real impact on HS2 Ltd’s decisions so please do share and encourage people to tweet about it, post about it and share the streams further still. #StopHS2

Some key points to raise:

HS2 is UNDER REVIEW and the OUTCOME HAS BEEN DELAYED. No matter your view on HS2, we shouldn’t be felling irreplaceable ancient trees and disrupting animal habitats when it might be for nothing.

Extinction Rebellion has supported this action and is handling live-streaming as part of joint actions but this action was started by a local group called Save the Colne Valley, many of those taking action are local people and tree protectors featured in the live-streams are not necessarily XR members.

Several activists have travelled from LEEDS to support this action and more still have plans to travel and support from Leeds. This isn’t a southern action, it’s a national action. HS2 won’t link up the north, it won’t improve the woefully inadequate links between many northern cities, and as such we are seeing many from the north travel to stand for our trees.

LIVE HS2 contractors block road and turn ambulances away.But they're allowing through convoys of diesel powered construction trucks to tear down trees for a project that may, and should, be cancelled.#STOPHS2 please call the HS2 complaints line if you are affected by the content of these videos: 08081 434 434

If is by Kier definitely yes. They have done the same in Stoke Mandeville. They took homes away from people as HS2 and then sold land to Kier and build 50 new houses.
