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 you are Following the Stonehenge Tunnel opposition as well that Rolo Maughfling won a Court case to intervention in.. Apparently now the Highways department are still going ahead & ignoring it.

Also, You know that all these protests on site that HS2 rebellion groups are doing against the big contractors....

Well.. look here this is established principle in law from at least 1930s.. Those in Councils or Governments who Commission Roads & highways or other works & projects, if they are found to have buisness interests themselves in the work.. They must quit/leave as its illegal.

Now Following on from the Anonymous video that shows how the Aristocracy in fact own all the shares in the Big Contractors who are doing the roadworks, Balfour Beattie, Kier and the Hoses too Tailor Wimpey.. In fact Earl Dartmouth Is building houses near us, trying to, & god knows how he personally got the lands as it was meant to be owned by the council, given to the local people. it is now evident that political parties, telling councillors how to vote on roads & building.. & rail.. are pulling the strings & the fact is they have PERSONAL BUISNESS INTERESTS THEMSELVES in proffit from these huge contractors.. Kier... Balfour Beattie. I mean just look at the names. Kier is one of her Majesty's Knights Starmer.

Its totally illegal that the Peerage & House of lords have personal buisness interests in these projects. & we need to do something, either action through the Supreme court or something. As the CPS will not do anything as Kier was Head of CPS. The Ministers & i believe even supreme court judges might have shares too in these big buisnesses & out to proffit from the projects & roads, even the Stonehenge tunnel.

Therefore we need to spread awareness of this please. youtu.be/ghP7kImI9WM & youtu.be/-pbJW026GEk

Comment on Facebook

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.

Ok Guys, Would anyone please be able to do a bit of Research I find the personal Contact Details for William Legge 10Th Earl of Dartmouth please? He is affiliated with Johnson Mowatt www.johnsonmowat.co.uk/consultations/hs3-lepton-huddersfield/?fbclid=IwAR1ccsv3enxL9QtorqRfW0Vk2T... So the Earls & peerage are heavily involved in this Development. I find this highly Concerning taking into account these two Videos recently that elaborate on how this peerage pretty much owns "Everything" And I believe is behind directing the Purchase & development of the CO-OP at the Village & the Political Parties on the Council who's councillors take order from Party HQ on what to vote for. They Had decided to Expand the King James School in Almondbury Village, which will be a Nightmare as the roads are all narrow & Windy! But they already started doing it.. And now the Application for HS2 and H3 houses is put in!! 😱 This is all heavily co-ordinated & timed planning & purchases. Its actually like a Military procedure in effect.. You MUST watch these, to be fully updated of the current situation, THIS EFFECTS ALL OF US THE WHOLE UK, in our Heritage sites & protecting them! youtu.be/-pbJW026GEk then watch this for confirmation: youtu.be/ghP7kImI9WM Here is the Image of what these HS2 and HS3 Development plans is connected to!! I think its all tied into this "northern Powerhouse" plan. & the HS2 Railway line that Extinction Rebellion Protesters are heavily opposing up & down the Country - On Site! Many Woodlands being protected & saved, or they are trying to! www.infrastructure-intelligence.com/article/dec-2014/case-building-hs3-hs2?fbclid=IwAR1DLHsrJW07W... this actually is nowhere near Us & they do not need this at all. It is going to ruin the area.

The reason I mention this is Because LOADS of Countryside is being effected.. Woodlands WALKS, TRACKS all up & down the country, in fact they have People On-Site actually protecting many Walks & Tracks from what's going on!! See how this whole thing is having an Effect on Our Hillfort & surrounding area!! By the houses coming close to it!! Just like what Had been Happening to Old Oswestry! The Warrior Tomb Already was built on! We are ALL going to be in this Situation soon, if we do not come together to do something, because as it shows in those videos I put these people are behind EVERYTHING that happening, Directing it all! 😮
