BNRR - more people needed


The attempts to evict the protestors at the proposed site of Britain's first official privately funded toll-road has been stepped up. The activists (see SchNEWS 174/175) have an appeal against eviction on the grounds of notices being served illegally pending in the High Court. Success would mean an extra 2 months at least, but if it fails the authorities are expected to begin eviction procedings by 12 September.

They are not only asking (desperately) for more people on site but also donations of car batteries, cement, bicycle d-locks and stash food and water.

Directions to Greenwood Camp: 105/105A bus from Bull Street or Corporation Street, Birmingham City Centre, to Roughley. Get off at last stop (by phone box) directly ahead you will see the crossroads. Left down Weeford Road, straight on til you reach a sliproad up to the A38, follow for 1 and a half miles and you'll see the camp on the left.
