HS2 has never been more likely to be cancelled than it is right now, but that doesn’t mean the fight is over: we’ve got a couple of things you could do in the next few days.
Boris Johnson owes his majority to the fact his party won seats in towns that have been left behind, and HS2 is just more of the same. Meanwhile lobbyists will be trying to con those new MPs into thinking exactly the opposite. So, with that in mind, could you write to your MP, telling them you are opposed to HS2 and want them to let the Prime Minister know.
This is a in interactive 5km walk from Denham rail station (UB9 5ES) at 12.15pm. But if you just want to do a bit of the walk there are details of where to meet mid route on the Facebook page.
The big deal right now is the fact HS2 was not backed in the Queen’s Speech. This means it’s all very much all up for grabs. With that in mind, our Christmas message to you is below, because make no mistake, the future of HS2 will be decided in the next five weeks or so, and we need you, and we need you now!
On 29th December, Chris Packham will be leading a walk around the Colne Valley (start 12.15 at Denham station, wear boots!) to highlight the destruction HS2 will reap and to ask people to Stand for the Trees.
