Remote actions to support Stop HS2

This post has been copied from this Google document created by (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.

You can also email the Prime Minister directly to express the above points. Here is Extinction Rebellion’s letter that they sent today.

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:

Haha, local issues or favourite cheese? Well I am none the wiser over my questions.

Just have to add that this photo is to weird!!! Is he doing a Captain Jack "how about this face? Remember this?" Yes I do, its smeg!! 😆 🤣 😂 Maaaaan I would give this chief the time of his life on police Q&A

Got some killer questions lined up now TRUST ME. you will love this... 3 companies now independent from police by court order.. Tele traffic UK Road Safety support Truvelo UK... Police PCCs must be removed if found to have buisness interests in roads. As civil servants.. As these companies are not independent... they ARE the police and their activities on roads as a road traffic authority is not lawful. Patterson law proved partly already that professional witnesses provided by road safety support was in breach of court rules. Subsequently the multi million company and to go non profit. This was not enough. Principal disclosed in 1930 road traffic act reminds us civil servants cannot have a buisness interest in roads. Or they will be removed. Tell us Chief Officer... Will you be removing your PCC? And discontinue buisness with the above non independent companies?? Including PCC for Leicester who is a member of the House of Lord's.... clearly previously under direction of The Prince Philip. Will 30 PCCs be removed for commission of equipment and use and authority imposed on roads in connection with police buisness interests that are in writing. Least forget the contractors.... Council collaborations.. balflour beattie, kier, rouse tailor wimpey, Ross. And more in connection with such interests

OK, Heres a Video ive made for XR. Anyone interested in Law, around Rights & protection from prosecution. Sometimes there is by merit of Reason, no actual differene between codified & uncodified law. The underlying basis & principle in effect between use of what is essentially the exact same right & powers.. that is applicable through multiple acts f law is "The same thing" that is being used. Its actually the same right. I believe that many solicxitors & even Queens Coucil are failing to properly have law used & ackowledged throught the proper proceedings & that Parliament not courts "The public Authorities" should be used. And We have been illegally forced through courts .

Anyway... May be of interest, as This should apply to all Tree protection actions, Diggers, and most other actions. :)
