Stop HS2 - Party at Parliament
Against a backdrop of cuts across the board, on Monday April 28th, MPs will be voting on HS2, a fast train for fat cats which will cost at least fifty billion pounds. Just to show how little they care for the environment, HS2 Ltd recently admitted their ‘ancient woodland directory might not have picked up all the sites’, saying they would destroy 19 ancient woodlands, when the Woodland Trust put that figure at 27. Come and join us and ask for a more sustainable future.

We launched our new campaign in April, targeting the aid-facilitated neo-colonial takeover of the African food system. We’ve got three great events coming up – in Birmingham on 29 April, London on the 30th and in Edinburgh on 1 May – for which we’ve enlisted the services of Tanzanian activist Janet Maro and Tim Lang, professor of food policy at City University. We’ll introduce and explore the campaign and work towards taking action.
