The aim of online actions is so we can collectively apply pressure on HS2 and it’s contractors.
For our planet, for the workers, for their families, for the communities where they work, for the Tree Protectors, for our NHS. For our future. We have to stop this.
There’s just no sense in HS2. With the lockdown still in full swing work continues relentlessly. It hurts and enrages to witness the injustice. We may be stuck at home, but that doesn’t make us powerless. We have options.
1 = SOCIAL MEDIA
Top priority!!! This week we are asking people to 👍 / ❤️, share and comment on anything with the four hashtags:
Want to make some posts/Tweets yourself? The images, accounts and hashtags you need are right here.
2 = CONTACT THE CONTRACTORS
The contractors are prioritising their project ahead of people’s lives.
Use this step-by-step guide to contact Mace and ask them to stop their Risky Business.
3 = ASK A QUESTION DIRECTLY!!!
We can now question why the government is carrying on with HS2 under lockdown through an ‘official’ channel. An independent polling organisation selects the question to put to the press briefings – this is a great opportunity as the government is not involved in the selection process!
Submit your question directly to the government here!
4 = MASS COMMENTING ON MINISTER BRIEFINGS
We’re coordinating a mass commenting effort on the daily press briefings given by UK Ministers which are hosted on Facebook. We’re going to raise the alarm and ask why HS2’s Risky Business is going ahead during a pandemic.
Here is a useful easy to follow guide on how to take part in mass commenting.
5 = CONTACT THE POLITICIANS
Our politicians have the power to end this HS2 nightmare. Get in touch and ask (nicely) what they are doing about it! Here’s the document with who to contact, talking points, example letters and a petition.
We’re going to stop HS2. Let’s keep the pressure on!
