London, UK. 30th October, 2020. Anti-HS2 activists dressed as HS2 enforcement agents and HS2 workers stage a HS2 Chainsaw Massacre protest outside the 'Among The Trees' exhibition at the Hayward Gallery. The protest was intended to highlight deforestation, including the daily environmental destruction being wrought for the controversial HS2 high-speed rail project, and instances of violence and brutality by security guards and bailiffs working on behalf of HS2 Ltd as well as calling on the Hayward Gallery to 'exhibit the truth' with regard to deforestation in the UK and around the world. The sounds of chainsaws being used by HS2 contractors to fell trees were relayed throughout the protest.
