Remote actions to support Stop HS2

This post has been copied from this Google document created by xrmidlandsactions@protonmail.com (please email them to add any information to their cloud doc)

Please uphold XR’s Principles and Values and the Rebel Agreement when engaging in these remote actions. Please consider that the individuals involved will all be navigating this stressful and emotional period and for some, their livelihoods and futures will be very uncertain.

There are four woods that Stop HS2 thinks are in immediate danger: Crackley, Broadwells, Birches and Cubbington. These woods are in the vicinity of Kenilworth.

At this moment, those who would like to participate in actions from home can call or email the  HS2 helpline and make the following complaints:

  1. As of this writing (24th March) Scotland and Wales have now halted all major construction sites to comply with the physical distancing required. In England, Crossrail has also shut down. HS2 bosses should comply as well.
  2. HS2 workers are travelling across the UK to compounds (For example, there were people from Scotland to Cardiff working on fencing on Monday 23rd March)
  3. HS2 plan to fell ancient woodland in bird nesting season, when it is illegal to disturb nesting birds according to Wildlife Countryside Act 1981. HS2 have already been clearing trees and hedgerows and disturbing nests, in full knowledge that what they are doing is illegal.
  4. You may also want to refer to this letter written by Robert Butler MP on 23rd March.

There are 4 subcontractors that the Stop HS2 campaign have reported seeing on site, although we have been unable to independently verify their participation in HS2 work. You could consider contacting these subcontractors to express concern for their employees and their activities:

Don't also forget that the potential dangers of 5G network will add on to even more serious problems with our world. HS2 and 5G network will mean game over for our natural world if we're not careful.
