Protest Camp Updates


Blackwood protest camp, just outside Cardiff, is still there despite more than a week of evictions. A bunker slightly off the site and on privately owned land remains occupied, and about 10 large trees on route are still there on the account of nesting birds. Other trees have been trashed, along with the treehouses in them. There will be a meeting at 3pm this Sat (3rd) at Kerry Camp to carry on the fight.

Nine Ladies Camp. No imminent eviction yet. The company responsible for the planned destruction, Marshalls (01484 438900) have had a busy week. Last Thursday 25 people stormed and occupied their Yorkshire offices, and the next day, their depot at Mansfield Woodhouse was blockaded and occupied.


Meanwhile, a new tree occupation has begun against the proposed F5 road scheme, planned for the A1159 Priory Crescent north, Southend on Sea, Essex.
