Please come down to the Camp this weekend (26/27 Jan) and be there to take part in the peaceful resistance to the eviction if & when it begins next week! (see maps above below – visting supporters are also welcome!). Campers have reinforcing the camp’s peaceful defences this week, but we also need lots of people in the trees and on the ground (and maybe in the ground!) for these to be effective.
Saturday (26 Jan) evening will be supper and singing at the Camp (with the musical entertainments beginning around 7pm). Please bring food to share, utensils to eat with, and if you wish, a song. Confirmed acts so far include the wonderful Street Lighting Man, and (equally wonderful) local musicians Tim Hoyte and Will Davis. If you’re a musician and would like to sing or play, please contact us at combehavendefenders[at]gmail.com, or ring us on 07926 423 033.
On Sunday (27 Jan), our friends at the Campaign for Better Transport are bringing down the Chief Executives of Greenpeace, Friends of the Earth, the Wildlife Trusts and the Campaign to Protect Rural England to Combe Haven to walk part of the route of the Road, witness the damage that’s already been done and visit the Camp – strong testimony to the national significance of the BHLR. Come and greet them at the Camp around 2pm.
COMBE HAVEN BUSES AVAILABLE!
A “Combe Haven Bus” service will be running again from Brighton this Sunday, calling at Lewes, Polegate, Bexhill, Hastings and St Leonards (timetable here). If you live in England, Wales or Scotland and can get 20 people to sign-up to come down to the Camp for 3-5 days then we will send a free “Combe Haven Bus” to pick them up and return them. For more info contact 07766335506.
Please note: “Decoy Pond” camp is a bit trickier to get to than the (now evicted) main camp was. In particular, at present you need to be fairly steady on your feet to navigate the rough and icy / muddy terrain.
