London, UK. 4th September, 2020. Activists from HS2 Rebellion, an umbrella campaign group comprising longstanding campaigners against the HS2 high-speed rail link as well as Extinction Rebellion activists, take part in a Fuck You HS2 Day of Action involving a protest outside HS2 Ltd offices at Euston, a march with the handmade Boris The Bank Engine from Euston to Parliament Square, a rally in Parliament Square and a protest outside the Department for Transport during which activists glued themselves to the doors and pavement and sprayed fake blood around the entrance. Anti-HS2 campaign groups continue to oppose the project from a series of protest camps established along the route of the high-speed rail link. The Day of Action coincided with an announcement by HS2 Ltd that construction of the controversial £106bn rail link will now commence.
