BRIEF REPORT ON 15/12/2012:
Activists occupied trees yesterday (Sat 15 Dec) in Bexhill & Combe Valley. Activists were able to stop some of the trees in Bexhill from being chopped down, though contractors were able to chainsaw quite a large a number there (see film below). There were two arrests – one for “aggravated trespass” (now charged and released), the second for not giving their name and address to a police officer (which they have no legal right to demand under most circumstances). No trees were felled at Adam’s farm yesterday however, which was also being defended.
