London, UK. 22 January, 2020. Stop HS2 campaigners seeking to protect ancient woodland and wildlife threatened by the HS2 high-speed rail link, including Stop HS2 campaign manager Joe Rukin and Elizabeth Cairns, author of ‘The Empowered Entrepreneur’ and Extinction Rebellion member, arrive in Westminster to lobby their MPs to speak out against and push for an immediate halt on works for the huge infrastructure project. Cost projections for the project, which would destroy or irreparably damage 108 ancient woodlands, are reported to have risen to £106bn and the Government is expected to make a decision about its viability in February.
