Subject: Bar End Meadow (Twyford Down) - Seige underway NOW!

help needed at Twyford Down

It's started, and they're asking for as many people as possible to get there now! Please spread the word, and wear robes if you have them, they want lots of media attention.

The site is off Bar End Road, which is an extension of Chesil Street that leads from the King Alfred statue out of the city. It's about a mile and half from the railway station.

If you are coming by road, come off the M3 at junction 10 and head for St Catherine's park and ride site, which is next to the proposed Bar End park and ride site. It's easy to find.

For more info phone 07764 633 056


(Message from last week)

From King Arthur -

Eviction This Weekend

The Council have leafletted the cars in the existing park and ride and are closing it this week end, which will mean the protest site will be completely issolated. Therefore we need to reinforce by Friday.

They are bringing heavy plant on and plan to open the new facility on Monday.

All that stands between them is a handful of protesters, some tunnels and a single arial walkway.


Ten years ago part of the A33 was given to the people of Winchester in part compensation for the loss of downland caused by the M3 Twyford extension.

What was once a road was given back to nature and was turned to beautiful meadow land.

This same land is now being turned in to a park and ride facility.

It can just as easily be returned to meadowland.

City, County and National councils and Government lied to the people of Winchester.

And the council's and government officials are called upon to adhere to their pledges.

We will resist.
