ENVIRONMENTAL activists are calling for reinforcements to protect a protest camp against HS2 in west London this weekend.
Last week bailiffs evicted parts of the Harvil Road Wildlife Protection camp in Uxbridge, west London, which had been stalling the rail project since 2017.
Extinction Rebellion (XR) activists have scaled trees to stall the project further, in a bid to protect wildlife along the along Harvil Road and the Chiltern railway. The activists say they will remain in the trees until they are forced down.
XR, Stop HS2 and Save Colne Valley are calling for support to protect the remaining camps.
Save Colne Valley campaigner Sarah Green said: “At this time of climate and ecological emergency, it is essential to safeguard our sources of drinking water and protect the wetland nature reserves, woodlands and wildlife of the Mid Colne Valley.
“To do this the HS2 project must be stopped — come join us this weekend and save the trees.”
