Dear Stop HS2 Supporter,
Today, Monday 16th July, Stop HS2 are holding a national day of action.
This is likely to coincide with Transport Secretary Justine Greening announcing a package of rail investments, including the electrification of the Midland Mainline, which will further reduce the supposed ‘need’ for HS2 and tear more strips of the business case. The investments announced tomorrow are in many ways the ‘last chance saloon’ for alternative rail investments before the spending on HS2 is due to kick in and hog the DfT infrastructure budget for the best part of two decades.
We very much hope you can join us for the demo outside parliament at Old Palace Yard, Westminster, SW1P 3JY, from 12-2 on Monday (gather from 11.30A.M).
If you haven’t done so already, whether you are coming or not, please also ask your MP if they can join us for a while, preferably 1pm, on the day.
If you can’t join us, could you email or phone (ideally between 12-2) contacting MPs, Lords, and Councilors to remind them that we have not gone away and we are not going to go away, and to demonstrate that you don’t have to travel to be effective. The House of Commons switchboard is 0207 219 3000.
Alternatively, you can email using the postcode search tool at www.highspeedrail.org.uk and a list of all MPs can be found at http://www.parliament.uk/mps-lords-and-offices/mps/
Hope to see you there!
