It’s party conference season, and Stop HS2 and our supporters are covering as many as we can. Joe Rukin, our campaign manager, has gone to three over the last three days.
Ellie the HS2 White Elephant is pictured in the BBC coverage of the Plaid Cymru party conference: the elephant’s keeper mentioned in the article is Joe Rukin. As was reported to the Transport Select Committee, HS2 is likely to cost Wales 21,000 jobs.
Joe spoke at the UKIP conference, as well as fitting in a side trip to the Green Party conference.
We haven’t got video coverage of these online yet, but in the meantime, here is a video of Mike Nattrass, UKIP MEP, taken at the national Stop HS2 conference in February.
PS It’s vital to have an anti-HS2 conference at as many party conferences as possible. Although we’ve got the volunteers to go to them, there are a lot of costs involved. If you can make a donation and support our presence at these conferences, we’d be really grateful.
