Harefield, UK. 17 January, 2020. Activists from Stop HS2 and Extinction Rebellion begin a three-day ‘Stand for the Trees’ protest in the Colne Valley timed to coincide with tree felling work by HS2 adjacent to the site of Stop HS2’s Colne Valley wildlife protection camp. Bailiffs acting for HS2 have been evicting Stop HS2 activists from the camp for the past week and a half. 108 ancient woodlands are set to be destroyed by the high-speed rail link.
