news from Nine Ladies - 25th January 2004

article from

Stancliffe Stone who intend to open the quarries, want the stone to build a shopping mall and a church in America. They also have plans to open another 70 sites for quarrying. The eviction will cost millions (literally). There are specialist climbers and tunnellers who will work with the bailiffs and police to evict the protesters. If the eviction is successful, people intend to go to another site under threat and continue to fight against Stancliffe Stone. The mobile number for the site has been barred! Hopefully, there will be another number soon.

Some things are needed urgently -

* Wood (beams, planks, plyboard, nails)
* Scaffolding and clips, steel girders and sheet (plus bolts)
* Concrete and reinforcing bar
* Polyprop Rope (12, 10, 5mm)
* Tarpaulin
* Climbing stuff-harnesses, clips, ropes (Static especially welcome)
* General woodworking and metal tools
* Shovels, pickaxes, wheelbarrows
* Bowsaws, Axes
* Food (beer is good also - its cold and muddy out there!!)
* Small packets of high energy food (dried fruit, chocolate, nuts - stuff like that is good for taking down a tunnel)
* Outdoor clothing
* Blankets
* First Aid equipment
* People who can charge car batteries
* Walkie talkies / intercoms
* Firelighters
