Subject: M74: EMERGENCY LEGAL DEFENCE FUND - CAN YOU HELP?
Date: Fri, 23 Jun 2006 00:08:44 +0100

This is a one-off unusual email for a very pressing situation. This legal case has implications for us all - should the government be allowed to overturn the decisions of independent inquiry inspectors? Please read the below and if you can, please contribute to the Fund as this very important case is happening next week. Yours, Road Block

M74: EMERGENCY LEGAL DEFENCE FUND - CAN YOU HELP?
*****************************************************************


In an unprecedented move Friends of the Earth Scotland has just launched an emergency Legal Defence Fund appeal. The launch of the Defence Fund forms part of Friends of the Earth's attempt to halt Britain's biggest motorway building project - the 500 million Glasgow M74 Northern Extension.

Friends of the Earth is taking the Scottish Executive to court to challenge their decision to build the M74 extension - despite the scheme being roundly rejected by an independent public inquiry.

That court hearing will begin on 27 June. Next week!!!

Friends of the Earth urgently needs to secure at least £25,000 in donations or loans. The Legal Defence Fund is needed because the group could face a massive legal bill if the case is lost, putting jobs and important environmental and community projects at risk.
