Update at 4pm: Four tree defenders arrested. Action over for the day.
We urgently need people to help defend the trees along the route of the Bexhill-Hastings Link Road (BHLR) today (Monday 17 December). Things are very fluid, so please call us on 07926 423 033 to find out what’s happening. Stay calm and peaceful.
For more info – or if you see any signs of contractor activity along the route of the Road today – contact 07926 423 033.
The chainsaw gangs have reportedly already cleared 3 of the 20 sections between Bexhill and Crowhurst. So, if anyone knows of a team of climbing-savvy activists with the skills to come down and build a tree house, now’s the time to mobilise them!
