Wendover Active Resistance (WAR) camp is currently being evicted by HS2 unlawfully. Around a hundred bailiffs, HS2 security and a tunneling team entered the site at 6am this morning. The court was contacted on Friday for a necessary amendment to the Court Order, which was produced in violation of what was stated and agreed in Court.
Seven people who lived in a 100 ft network of tunnels under Euston Square Gardens for 31 days to stop HS2 have had all charges dismissed in a real-life courtroom drama hailed as a “victory for the right to protest” by supporters including TV presenter Chris Packham.
As part of the ongoing Impossible Rebellion, two protesters have begun climbing the 7-storey offices of Marsh Insurance to protest against their influential role as the insurers of HS2’s subcontractors.
At St. Alban’s Magistrates Court on Monday 23rd August 2021 the final 7 activists from the ‘Extinction is Forever’ protest (which took place outside a HS2 site on the outskirts of Maple Cross, Uxbridge, West London in October 2020) were suddenly acquitted when the case was dismissed by the judge after just one hour into the proceedings.
On the 9th of October 2020 a non-violent protest took place outside the gates of a HS2 site on the outskirts of Maple Cross, Uxbridge, West London. A group of environmental activists erected (and in some cases ascended) temporary bamboo structures at the gates of the site, housing construction work and a quarry. Protesters remained in place for almost 10 hours. 21 activists were eventually arrested, without resistance and were later charged with Section 241 (D) of the Trade Unions and Labour Relations Act (watching or besetting a workplace, in order to compel a person to abstain from doing an act that person had a legal right to do - TU92006).
