BREAKING NEWS: Protesters against HS2 take to the trees in Parliament Square to demand the government to act now.
They are there to witness Parliaments decision on the CEE bill, and pledge to remain until the government acts on the climate emergency, backs the bill and stops destructive projects like HS2.
Protesters from the front lines of the campaign against HS2 have successfully made it up the trees, and are acting in solidarity with the rebellion.
Ash, 22, one of the tree climbers, said: “The government needs to make ecocide law. This is our last chance to change, reconstruct, re-wild and reconnect.”
Another tree climber, Athena, 22, said: “I’m doing this to inspire more people to join the campaign against HS2. The project is a perfect example of how corrupt the system is. We are in a climate and ecological emergency – we don’t need a high-speed railway.”
