Nottingham meet re road protest camps - 19th November 2004

Triple Road Bypass

In time honoured corporate style, Neo-Labour has put UK plc firmly back on the route to more road building. Their mates at the Confederation of British Industry have convinced Blair that they need to get their hands on the 20 billion in profits that congestion supposedly costs the country each year. And to help company bosses jet around to extract cash from every corner of the world, airport expansion plans are a-plenty.

From the Aberdeen western bypass to the Weymouth Relief Road, protest camps against road building projects are constantly fighting eviction. There'll be a gathering in Nottingham at the Sumac centre between 19th and 21st November to look at what's being built, where, by whom and what we can do about it. There'll be some planning of actions, discussions on the role and support of camps and building networks to support local campaigns.

Booking's essential - tel 0845 345 1998
