This follows a protest in February 2020 when the two activists, including the partially sighted Paralympic gold medallist James Brown, allegedly climbed onto HS2’s 100ft drilling rig in the Colne Valley, West London.

On Saturday 6th November between 4pm and 8pm, we will be holding a vigil in support of our incredibly brave tunnellers. On this day which also marks DAY 28 of the Wendover Eviction and DAY 21 of the Subterranean Protest, we wish to show our support from the community to our 5 very brave and deeply committed activists who are putting their lives at risk to protest HS2.

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).
